Starring Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari, in a rom-com spanning three metropolitan cities, and a few years – that could only spell so many disasters on paper. But director Anu Menon’s London Paris New York has been receiving a few positive feedback from critics, alongside a few negative ones too. Here is a roundup of what the reviews have been spelling out.
Kaveree Bamzai, India Today
Yes, yes, 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.
Aniruddha Guha, DNA: Rating: 3 Stars / 5
LPNY is a short and sweet romcom that will leave you with a smile. Go for it.
Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times Of India: Rating : 3 Stars / 5
It probably won’t move you to tears, but one thing is for sure — after traveling across the globe, this one won’t leave you jet-lagged.
Piyali Dasgupta, NDTV: Rating: 2.5 Stars / 5
I’ll go with 2.5 stars for this film, for spinning yet another rom-com, which tries to be different, but doesn’t really succeed. I missed a story in the film.
Preeti Arora, Rediff: Rating: 2 Stars / 5
Hand held shots, the grainy documentary effect in so many outdoor sequences, unconventional camera angles isn’t something we see in rom-coms. And for that alone give this film a chance.
Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama: Rating: 3.5 Stars / 5
If you are young or young at heart, celebrate your weekend by leaping on to this feel-good earth hopping romance.
Komal Nahata, KoiMoi: Rating: 1 Star / 5
On the whole, London Paris New York may be a medium-budget film but its appeal is so limited that recovering even the limited investment would be an impossible task.
