Consensus: Kyle MacLachlan does a very good imitation Cary Grant in this forced and contrived tale.

Steve Murray
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

There are two crucial bits of miscasting, one bad, one good, both distracting.

Detroit Free Press

Much of the problem with Touch of Pink rests with Mistry, whose nice guy appeal registers even less than it did in his previous starring vehicles, The Guru and The Mystic Masseur.
