Read the critics reviews below:
Subhash K Jha in his review said: "A spirit of sassy exploration runs through this extremely enjoyable vaguely misogynistic comedy. Pyaar Ka Punchnaama 2(PKP2) is not just bolder more provocative than the first part. It's a lot sexier and smarter. A chirpy chutzpah cuts through the sharply-written narrative creating a credible and disturbing argument against urban relationships of convenience."
Bollywood Hungama in its review said: "On the whole PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA 2 packs a solid punch with its unusual, yet relevant storyline. It is a film for youngsters who may patronize it in a big way. Recommended, go for it!"
Sreeju Sreedharan of BollywoodLife.com said: "The film reaches the intermission point with a quite hilarious scene where the heroes make a.mock parody of the smoking disclaimers, using love instead of cigarettes. Hoping the film maintains the fun and tempo from the first half, while doing something different from the original in the second half!"
Deepanjana Pal of Firstpost said: " The film promotes prejudice and camouflaged in its 'insights' are offensive stereotypes that you'd hope modern India would want to shatter rather than reinforce."
Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express said: "In the sequel all we get is more of the same, minus the freshness and the age-appropriate smart lines."
Sweta Kaushal of Hindustan Times said: "All the actors fit perfectly into their characters: The boys effortlessly depict what men often discuss during boys' talk and the girls play dumb as and when the character demands."
