Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News: "Kapoor and Sons" flourishes as a unit and is the sum total of mature performances by the entire Kapoor clan. Watching "Kapoor and Sons" is a revelatory experience.
Bollywood Arena: On the whole, "Kapoor and Sons" is slick, breezy and pleasant fare that should click with its target audience. It's an entertaining emotional family drama which you just cannot afford to miss. Go for it.
Sneha May Francis of Emirates 24/7: Unfortunately, Shakun doesn't build on that gem and leaves "Kapoor and Sons" rather half-baked. It's a ticking time bomb, but one that fizzles out in the end.
Mehul S Thakkar of Deccan Chronicle: All credit goes to director Shakun, who holds together all of this like a perfect winning trophy. His sensibilities in the family drama genre will certainly set a new benchmark.
Smita Vyas Kumar of Desimartini: A dramatic family story without the melodrama. The tight story is complimented by outstanding performances. Do not miss.
Lokesh Dharmani of Masala.com: The Punjabi family sounds too South Bombay in a place like Coonor. Also, it gets a bit sluggish in the first half. But "Kapoor and Sons" beautifully delves deep into human emotions and easily makes it as one of the finest films of the year so far.
Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times: No dark secrets here, but the shock value is definitely there. You will love it for being spontaneous, precise, fast paced and well lovable. A fantastic family drama after a long time.
Dhriti Sharma of Zee News: If you wish to see a congenial movie with a bottom of gravitas sans the glamour and glitz, then you must not miss "Kapoor and Sons" since 1921.
Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV: "Kapoor and Sons is intense and incisive in its observation of human inadequacies but is always entertaining. It is a winner all the way.
Ananya Bhattacharya of India Today: In all, watch "Kapoor and Sons" for everything. And if you happen to have a crush on Fawad Khan, watch it for him.
