"U know what i liked abt #DeDePyaarDe is the fact that its not aspiring to great cinema. Its fun & unapolegetic abt its hindi commercial cinema aspirations,yet looks at old as the hills new relationships with a rare empathy & humour, avoidng the pitfalls of grand dialogue & cliche."

"#DeDePyaarDe - This rom-com subject of a 50 yr old man falling in love with a woman half his age, is a refreshing remake idea for some of our senior Tamil superstars. With some tinkering in the source subject, it can be catered to the local audiences in a really entertaining way."
