Koimoi – Komal Nahatha"s Rating: 4.5
The entertaining second half and the hit music save Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya and make it a plus fare for Tips and UTV. However, a few of the distributors who have acquired territorial distribution rights at fancy prices will not be able to make money.
Bollywood Hungama - Taran Adarsh"s Rating:
Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya is refreshing and succeeds in its endeavor of amusing and entertaining, more particularly in its second hour. In addition, the sparkling performances by Riteish and Genelia is the mainstay of the film.
Times of India - Gaurav Malani"s Rating: 3
The film primarily works, thanks to the convincing chemistry and performances by the lead pair. Riteish Deshmukh is resourcefully restrained, perfectly poised and, needless to say, his comic timing is impeccable.
DNA India - Shakti Salgaokar"s Rating: 3
The film has its flaws. There's over the top emotional drama, the drunken Genelia scene which is completely unbelievable and mildly irritating. Of course the film could have done without the forced item song, where Veena Malik's artificially abundant bosom tries to charm and fails, but other than that, this one's a fun, breezy watch.
Oneindia"s Rating: 3
Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya, starring the newly wed couple Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'souza is sure to bring smile on your face. Whether it is comedy, on-screen chemistry between the lead actors or the screenplay – Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya doesn't disappoint you at all.
Rediff - Preeti Arora"s Rating: 2.5
Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya has too much saccharine, otherwise it retains a frothy, smooth texture.
NDTV – IANS Rating: 2.5
Some love stories are just so sweet, more so, when real life couples romance on reel. Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya is one of those. No extraordinary story or no unique formula, no major histrionics, yet, this romantic-comedy entertains and touches your heart.
Mid-Day - Shubha Shetty-Saha"s Rating: 2.5
The best thing I like about this film is the consistency of direction. The film stays true to its fibre and its environment. And yes, a special mention should be made of the dialogues (Dhieyo Sandhu). They are funny and actually fit well into the setting of the film. Even though the girl falling in love with her kidnapper (forced or otherwise) is a weather beaten story premise, this one has some surprise twists and turns.
Glamsham - Martin D'Souza"s Rating: 2.5
TNLHG could have been a good Valentine's Day release. Also, coming soon after the Riteish Geneila marriage, it would have added as a curiosity factor. All the same, this is a fun film worth a watch.
