Eric Harrison
Houston Chronicle

A charming if inconsistent comic essay on assimilation.

Millicent Mayfield
San Francisco Examiner

Filled with wacky humor and inside jokes that may leave Indian audiences rolling in their seat and average Americans sporting a quizzical look.

Kirk Honeycutt
Hollywood Reporter

Assembles all the usual stereotypes in one movie.

Dave Kehr
New York Times

This film clearly understands its target audience of first-generation Indian-Americans and has its pleasures to provide.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

The filmmakers joke about situations that will surprise those of us unfamiliar with Indian culture and amuse those who are. Much of the remaining material, however, is trite.

Bob Campbell
Minneapolis Star Tribune

An amiable city mouse/country mouse story.

Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times

Where's the Party, Yaar? is too corny and drawn-out to appeal to crossover audiences but may strike a nerve in Indian communities.

Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone

The story bogs a bit and seems to run long, but any movie that has cricket and high-energy Indian numbers can't be all bad.
