Half Girlfriend Movie Review


Ratings:1/5. Review by Rajeev Masand on CNN News18

Mohit Suri, who knows how to whip up drama and create moments, is woefully off his game here. “Half Girlfriend” is a misfire of epic proportions. Blame it on the book, or the script that it spawned, but this movie is excruciating to endure. I’m going with one out of five. It’s the cinematic equivalent of an ulcer.

OneWordReview… #HalfGirlfriend: Unimpressive. A few emotional moments + Arjun-Shraddha stand out. Expected so much more from Mohit Suri.


1.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Meena Iyer on Times of India

The first half breezes through, but post interval proceedings hang; in tandem with the hangdog expression worn by the hero. Arjun is sincere but seems too urban for an ideal Bihari’ fit. And Shraddha, who looks her loveliest here, lacks gravitas.  Finally, half girlfriend or boyfriend is that person many of us have encountered on campus. However, do we really want to relive those memories? It depends entirely on the mood.


2.) Rating: 1/5. Review by Raja Sen on NDTV Movies

Half Girlfriend is about two halfwits who belong together. It is a film that claims to celebrate romance and undying passion and gates both Bill and Indian, but all it does is applaud a spoilt man who believes he’s a scapegoat. He is not. He is, in fact, a man who hands the woman he loves a butcher knife, gets down on all fours, sticks his neck over an earthen pot of biryani and goes baaaaa. Off with his head.


3.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Tushar P Joshi on Bollywood Life

Half Girlfriend has full drama and works primarily due to Arjun Kapoor’s stellar performance and his crackling chemistry with Shraddha Kapoor.


4.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Udita Jhunjhunwala on First Post

A great deal of effort has gone into making the basketball scenes authentic. If only some of that had gone into improving the dialogue, especially the incredibly awkward English lines, and Arjun Kapoor’s Bihari accent. Half Girlfriend is strictly for fans of the book or the two leads because at best it’s quarter tolerable.

6.) Rating: 1/5. Review by Ahana Bhattacharya on Koimoi

I would recommend going to a restaurant or café, chatting with friends, reading a good book, getting a spa done or whatever, just whatever that makes you happy and keeps you occupied during the weekend rather than watching this boring, silly tale. If you are indeed planning to watch Half Girlfriend, don’t tell me that I didn’t warn you before! I couldn’t rate it more than a single star.

7.) Rating: 1/5. Review by Sonil Dedhia on Midday

‘Half Girlfriend’ is full of loopholes. Madhav, for instance, is vocal about wanting to study Sociology at St Stephen’s College, Delhi, but sadly the makers failed to research enough to learn the course isn’t available there. Also, a blotched up job by the VFX team made Bill Gates’ (also referred as Bill Gateva) special appearance seem rather miserable. Kapoor’s efforts at delivering a heart-wrenching scene as Madhav makes an earnest confession, falls flat, given that the audience was evidently humoured by Gate’s face shabbily pasted on someone. Finally, after watching Riya’s poorly lip-synced songs, Justin Bieber would be having the last laugh.


8.) Rating: 1/5. Review by Manjusha Radhakrishnan on Gulf News

Watch this film if you are in the mood for a romance punctuated by a generous dose of drama, tears and heartache.You may not become any wiser in love with this film, but you are not going to die of boredom either.
