Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India (TOI):

Straight away, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is Salman Khan’s triumph. Salman simply blows the top off the theatres with a double role that makes you laugh, gasp, sigh – and cry. Prem Dilwale, Ayodhya’s Ram Leela artist, admires Princess Maithili…

Mid-Day:

What would you expect from a Sooraj Barjatya-Salman Khan collaboration? ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ has all that and err… just that… Their most successful film together, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ had charmed us off our feet with its simple story, good-hearted lead pair…

Hindustan Times:

A lot has changed in the Hindi film industry since 2006, the last time Sooraj Barjatya’s name flashed across the screens as a movie’s director. His Vivah didn’t exactly set the box office on fire, at least not on the lines of what his earlier films Maine Pyar Kiya…

The Indian Express:

In 1989, ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ released. Coming from the Rajshris, a production house that prided itself on being low key, the film’s impact was cataclysmic. Bollywood discovered a new hero…

India Today:

Blood is thicker than water. That’s what Sooraj Barjatya films are mostly about. Family ties, the stresses and tensions that every family needs to go through and the likes. If you’ve watched this director’s films in the past, you’d get the drift…

Rediff:

It is not the predictability but the lop-sided sentimentality of Sooraj R Barjatya’s narrative that hurts Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’s intentions the most, says Sukanya Verma…

Glamsham:

PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO is a Diwali cracker that goes phus. It’s an archaic story told in an archaic manner. Sooraj Barjatya takes 174 minutes to tell you this tale that has no meat, no soul, nor a proper push forward…
