Gori Tere Pyaar Mein Movie Review

Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (Hindi)

Release Date:
November 22, 2013

Sriram Venkat is the most shallow guy on earth who doesn't value relationships, family, friends, life or the country. Not necessarily in that order. Because he couldn't care less about the order. This makes him the clear 'black' sheep of the family.

At some point this shallow man begins to narrate the story of the crazy relationship he shared with Dia Sharma. His ex girlfriend. A firebrand social activist who wanted to change the world. An attraction which was physical initially but then got emotional and finally veered into complex territories resulting in a clash of ideologies and mindsets which drove them apart. Bitterly. Sriram believed that charity begins and ends at home. Whilst Dia felt that you have to be the change that you want to bring about.

However Sriram realizes that he is not over Dia and still loves her and that she is the best change that ever happened... and will happen to his life.

But Dia has moved on and is now in an obscure village in Gujarat called Jhumli.

Sriram lands up in Jhumli to take his love back... But Dia refuses to return with him. Frustrated and faced with the ultimate challenge, Sriram realizes the only way he can impress upon Dia to come back with him is by making Jhumli independent. By helping others... something he is just not accustomed to do. This is the biggest irony of his life.

What he doesn't bargain for are the various road blocks he might face, in the face of politics, corruption and clueless villagers. But the biggest hurdle he faces eventually is himself. His own moral fabric which isn't upto the challenge he has undertaken.

Will Sriram be able to win back his love? Will he be able to bring about the change in Jhumli as well as in himself??? This is the story of a boy and his struggle to cross a bridge... a bridge that bridges the love and gap between two people.

We don’t go to rom-coms expecting cold logic, but even as a heart-tugger Gori Tere Pyaar Mein doesn’t quite cut it

The Hindu

If you’re willing to be shallow and overlook Kareena’s kohl-lined eyes and nude lipstick as she rails against the world’s injustices, the film is reasonably entertaining

Hindustan Times

This rom-com doesn't have the crackle and pop of an original romance, or even cleverly written comic lines

The further the writers travel from their comfort zone - Bangalore, Delhi, and finally rural Gujarat - the more ridiculous it gets

It works as an idea but it's not new

Mumbai Mirror

The narrative is plastic in the way it creates its characters. Every protagonist suffers from weak writing

Director Punit Malhotra’s quirky new romantic tale with Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan is geared with every Hindi romantic movie formula there is


Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is the weakest offering from Dharma Productions in the longest time


A sweet, breezy romcom with likeable characters presented in glossy, lavish, true Karan Johar style

Times of India

The film maintains the right balance between amusement, hilarity and engaging moments
