Director Zoya Akhtar follows up Luck By Chance with another sensitive and entertaining study of people, even as she gives Bollywood it's first full blown contemporary road movie.

Daily Bhaskar: 3/5
Watch the flick for some light moments full of fun and laughter.

Kaveri Bamzai, India Today: 4/5
Lovely. A bromance that has more style and heat than most rubish romcoms. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara? It's a film you will want to watch dobara.

Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV: 3/5
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara does exude pronounced traces of the spirit of Dil Chahta Hai, but its essential rhythm is its own, stemming from the dynamics of a full-fledged road movie shot through with intelligence, emotion and, above all, humanism.

Blessy Chettiar, DNA: 3/5
go catch ZNMD for good performances, music, Spain and of course, Farhan Akhtar in his element.

Kunal Guha, Yahoo: 3/5
The film isn't as simplistic as it seems and each character has a back story and internal conflicts that surface intermittently between thrill-seeking stunts, sugary love, drunk talking and some seriously childish pranks.

Rony Dcosta, Desimartini: 3.5/5
ZNMD is TLC meets Robin Sharma against the biutiful backdrop of Spain. It was designed to make you feel good and it achieves that.

Pankaj Sabnani, Glamsham: 4/5
Watch ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA to fall in love with zindagi (life) all over again!

Rajeev Masand, CNN-IBN: 3.5/5
It proves that Zoya Akhtar has a unique, compelling voice and unlike many of her contemporaries, she actually respects that a cinema audience can be both intelligent and mature.

Mayank Shekhar, Hindustan Times: 4/5
What you take home are memorable, amusing moments of three truly adventurous amigos we've all grown up with. And will continue to.

Pratim D. Gupta, The Telegraph:
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara IS A LESSON IN LIFE IN THE FORM OF A FUN ROAD TRIP

Anna Vetticad: 3/5
No, ZNMD is not flawless, but it does gently dwell on some of life’s lessons and I had a good time watching it.
