“Raj Mehta’s JugJugg Jeeyo is more committed to its ideals than Jo and Jo, but it too is at pains to soften the blow of its explicit feminism by balancing out every criticism of a husband’s infidelity and selfishness in a marriage with quick shifts to a tone humourising the same conduct,” the Firstpost review said.

Reviewed by Monika Rawal Kukreja, the Hindustan Times headline read, ‘Entertaining and emotional tale featuring good-looking people.’

“Right from the first scene till the climax, the film maintains a pace that keeps you engaged in the Saini family’s good and bad times and doesn’t serve too many dull moments. Anurag Singh’s story and Rishabh Sharma’s dialogues effectively blend to create situations that make you laugh, cry, relate with the characters and all this with a lot of naach gaana,” reviewed Hindustan Times.

JugJugg Jeeyo review by India Today

In his review, Tushar Joshi said the film’s biggest strength lies in the fact that it showcased the entire cast in the best way possible. ‘Varun Dhawan, Anil Kapoor’s father-son act is jhakkas in this family entertainer,’ read the headline.

“The film is a bit too long and has nothing new to offer when it comes to showcasing the fun side of a Punjabi wedding. Some of the scenes are shot in such a way that they could make their way into an Ekta Kapoor daily soap. The film has loud background music and dialogue that cross the normal decibel levels,” the India Today review said.

The Hindu‘s headline read, ‘Anil Kapoor is the throbbing heart of this dysfunctional comedy that works in parts.’

“In a bid to make the bitter pill palatable, the writers have rolled it in so much saccharine of situational humour that the complex subject loses its potency,” reviewed Anuj Kumar.
