Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi is a simple, unfussy and heartfelt movie that hits the right notes. The film supports the fact that no one is too old to fall in love. Truly, this wonderful love story has no expiry date. Recommended!

Director Bela Bhansali Sehgal manages perfect casting in her fun directorial debut Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi.
Times Of India - Madhureeta Mukherjee's Rating: 3
This is no epic love tale, but it's worth a watch for those who like their cinema as buttered as their bun maska.
India Toda - Vinayak Chakravorty's Rating: 3
Despite narrating a fairly predictable tale of love, the film works for the brilliant moments that the script provides. Bela's brother Sanjay Leela Bhansali, incidentally also the producer of this film, has penned quite a few scene stealers for the lead couple. Boman and Farah score full marks with chemistry. It's a crazy ride guaranteed to leave you grinning as you leave the cinema. That makes it worth a watch.

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi demands little of you and delivers enough for you to not grudge spending time and money on it. I suggest you watch it for some honest moments and a lovable performance by Boman Irani.
Yahoo - Kunal Guha's Rating: 2.5
SFKTNP may not be the greatest love story ever told and may not have a novel plot even. But it leaves you with a snuggly feeling and yearning to experience what you've seen on the screen.
NDTV - Saibal Chatterjee's Rating: 2.5
Though a bit on the sluggish side, Shirin Farhad Ki To Nikal Padi is warm-hearted and generally watchable without being exhilarating.
Hindustan Times - Anupama Chopra's Rating: 2.5
Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi is a sweet but slight love story that is stretched so much that by the end, we no longer care if Shirin and Farhad live happily ever after or not.
Koimoi - Roshni Devi's Rating: 2.5
Watch it for a nice, simple comedy.
Oneindia - Nabanita's Rating: 2
Love is true and pure in this film, but fails to impress us. It's rather a sickening middle-age romance story that delivers nothing except a severe headache.
