Rating Score -> 4/5
'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani' is a family entertainer that is a gentle reminder of Karan’s legacy and his love for blockbuster cinema. Go watch it at a theatre near you. Or in Jaya ji’s words - bas keh diya so keh diya!

Rating Score -> 4/5
Ranveer Singh managed to spell his charm once again. He is outstanding, like a chameleon who can get into the skin of any character given to him. Alia Bhatt is a terrific and natural actor, without a doubt. Karan Johar has impressed me and made me fall in love with romantic films once again.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is a joyful and nostalgic ride. It might not be Karan’s best work but it comes across as a gush of fresh wind. The filmmaker, once again, proves that there’s no one quite like him and when it comes to family sagas, he’s the undisputed king. It’s time to start a petition for the official coinage of ‘the Karan Johar genre of cinema’.

6. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Karan Johar packs a few surprises in Alia Bhatt-Ranveer Singh’s loud and melodramatic film. This Alia Bhatt-Ranveer Singh film has ginormous sets, blingy naach-gaana and a lot of emotions, but little originality.

7. First Post -

Rating Score -> 4/5
Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt deliver heartwarming family entertainer of the year. Karan Johar delivers one of the best Bollywood films of 2023 in the form of Ranveer Singh & Alia Bhatt's Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani

8. ABP Live -

Rating Score -> 3/5
'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani' ticks all the mainstream family entertainer films that offer a no-brainer story, is lavishly designed and decorated, songs to watch on a big screen, laughs to be shared with fellow movie-watchers, and A-listers with great chemistry. Karan Johar makes a film unabashedly unapologetic, and for that he gets full marks for keeping his signature alive.

What stood out in RARKPK has to be its music. While Jhumka and Dhindhora Baje Re are full-on party tracks, Tum Kya Mile and Ve Kamleya are soultouching. The film also pays an homage to classics by Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar and that ode to the old world charm of Bollywood music is what I truly enjoyed.

10. Times Now -

Rating Score -> n/a
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is a triumphant return for Karan Johar, offering a tale of love that traverses time and emotion. With its alluring performances and rich storytelling, the film strikes a chord with audiences and reaffirms Johar's position as a maestro in the realm of Indian cinema.

11. Zoom TV -

Rating Score -> 4/5
A whirlwind of emotions - chaotic, beautiful and flawed - Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani plays out like a nostalgic homage to the golden age of cinema. Karan Johar's Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is am opulent love story, featuring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is a twisted meandering tale of flawed love – both present, and past – that intertwines humour and pathos with equal ease.

12. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is an out-and-out entertainer but the lack of superhit music will come in the way of realisation of its full potential at the box-office. Besides, its below-the-mark initial today is not just alarming but also an indicator that the business will not be bumper even if one can safely expect collections to pick up.

13. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 2/5
For all the subversion that runs through Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani and pretty boldly at that (as in the lingerie store sequence or in the discussion on being a male Kathak dancer), the film is a shiny but shallow family drama that uses disappointingly obsolete methods to serve up contemporary, pertinent theories about the need to be mindful in love, loyalty and language.

14. Mid-day -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
More than simply a pic, I think Rocky Rani is a top of the pop-culture moment—to be loved/shared as memes, reels, clips, cooler talk, and kitty party chatter. Box-office wallahs might rightly say, “Killed it Karan!” It’s Bollywood, as the gorgeous genre, the director knows, better than any.

15. The Hindu -

Rating Score -> n/a
So, the pitch - soch nayi, swad wahi (new thought, same taste) - doesn’t really hold and finds traction only in the second half. Till then, it pans out as a laboured rom-com, laced with broad humour, that needs to be told because Karan hasn’t directed one for a while. In the first half, it lacks a voice and when it gets one, it gets into a high-pitched social messaging mode.

16. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 3/5
As far as prem kahanis go, I am still rooting for Team Rahul and Anjali, but if we are talking subversion, Rocky and Rani's fully filmi revolution could truly be a start of 'soch nayi' if 'swad wahi.'

17. The Week -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
The overall tone and the storyline, however, impress and entertain the audience. Johar seems to have learned and grown from his previous experiences, as he recently admitted that a lot of things Rahul said (in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) were wrong. Keeping in mind the simpler times of the day back then, no one seemed to have minded but Johar in 2023 knows better!
