Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If there's a fresh idea in "When Harry Tries To Marry," I couldn't find it."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Inspires little more than eye-rolling and impatient finger-tapping."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Time Out New York
"When Harry Tries to Marry shakes up the stale rom-com formula."
‑ Christian Toto, What Would Toto Watch?
"Nothing new under the sun, but Padrai spices things up just enough."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"A bright, colorful slab of faux-multiculturalism, When Harry Tries to Marry is a substandard romantic comedy gussied up in Indian drag."
‑ Ernest Hardy, Village Voice
"The larger problems are the usual ones for low-budget romcoms: haphazard plotting, clumsily staged and overly broad comedy and clunky dialogue."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"...an egregiously familiar romantic comedy that hews far too closely to the well-worn formula that one has come to associate with films of this ilk."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
