Review Taran Adarsh Site: Twitter (Ratings 4/5)
Bold. Refreshingly different. Progressive cinema… #CKA enlightens and entertains… Pushes the envelope, defies the stereotype and drives home a pertinent message… WATCH IT! After #KaiPoChe and #RockOn, director #AbhishekKapoor gets it right yet again with #ChandigarhKareAashiqui… He handles the subject on hand with utmost sensitivity… There are minor hiccups [second half], but the drama, conflict and culmination deserve brownie points. AyushmannKhurrana is known for choosing out of the box themes and #ChandigarhKareAashiqui mirrors his versatility yet again… Kudos for green-lighting this one, stepping out of the comfort zone and bringing to fore an issue not many actors would’ve had the courage to accept.
Review Komal Nahta Site: Filminformation (Ratings….)
The comedy and light moments are quite enjoyable at several places. However, the crux of the story is so insensitively handled that the plus points of the drama pale into insignificance in comparison.On the whole, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is a film with very limited class appeal. Other than that, it will face rejection among the masses and family audiences. In other words, its business only from select multiplexes of the big cities will be fair.

Abhishek Kapoor’s film, which is about how love is love, hello gender fluidity, differences be damned, is on to something. Even in 2021, Bollywood prefers playing safe and keeping all tricky subjects at bay. On that score, getting in a trans person as romantic plot point is an act of courage. But Kapoor is also careful, one might say a little too careful, and wraps everything up in jokey stereotypy. But if you are so worried about potentially alienating your viewers, you are also likely to dilute the heft of your subject. So you go ahead and insert words like ‘chakka’ (ugh) so that you can get your hero to push back against it and feel very noble. But to use ‘paagalon ka doctor’ for psychiatrists? Really
