Bollywood Hungama - Taran Adarsh’s Rating: 3.5
London Paris New York is akin to a lungful of fresh air amidst the hackneyed and passe rom-coms. It's a quirky, witty, coming-of-age movie that takes a conventional premise and twirls it into something delightfully unconventional, designed to charm and magnetize the urban youth. The movie speaks their lingo, mirrors their objectives and depicts the anguish and elation of falling in love
Times of India - Madhureeta Mukherjee’s Rating: 3.5
London Paris New York is a sweet story that deals with very real emotions. It is urbane, cool and thankfully, not dated. The simplicity of the dialogues makes it enjoyable. It deals with the trials and tribulations of the youth, and the complexities of finding real love.
CNN-IBN - Rajeev Masand’s Rating: 3.5
I'm going with three out of five for writer-director Anu Menon's 'London Paris New York'. The charismatic actors rise above the flawed script to deliver an easy, enjoyable evening at the movies. Watch it for its freshness; you won't be bored.
Oneindia’s Rating: 3.5
The wonderful chemistry between Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari is the main attraction of the film London Paris New York. Ali Zafar's tilting music and Sameer Arya wonderful picturisation, fitting dialogues and beautiful locales are the other highlights of the film.
India Today - Kaveree Bamzai’s Rating: 3
The movie is heavily borrowed from Before Sunset, Before Sunrise and every other movie about love with a deadline, but there is a refreshing sweetness to it. They look good in their perfectly assembled "looks"-one for each of the three cities. And more importantly, they look good together.
NDTV - Piyali Dasgupta’s Rating: 2.5
This movie gets it right in the first half. Despite the trepidation of watching yet another rom-com, grow up and accept yourself kind of movie, Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari pull it off. They look good together and the dialogues are mostly conversational. But Anu Menon fails to carry it through to the second half.
Hindustan Times - Anupama Chopra’s Rating: 2.5
When an entire film is based on the meeting and parting of two individuals (who are thereby in every frame), it puts enormous pressure on the actors and writer. Both need to sparkle consistently. Even first-rate performers find it a tough act.
Mid-Day - Shubha Shetty-Saha’s Rating: 2.5
What works for the film is the way the three cities have been captured by cinematographer Sameer Aarya. And the peppy music. And Ali Zafar's easy charm.
Rediff - Preeti Arora’s Rating: 2
London Paris New York is a run-of-the-mill romantic comedy but scores in the cinematography department.
Koimoi - Komal Nahta’s Rating: 1.5
The very restricted appeal of the script; elements of the screenplay which are not convincing; the lack of hit music. London Paris New York will not work too well in India.
