    A few quotes from Hum Tum review by Indiafm:

    Kunal Kohli seems inspired by the works of Chopra and Johar and his second outing, HUM TUM, borrows heavily from their works. Of course, the basic plot is inspired by WHEN HARRY MET SALLY [1989; Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan] and the film also brings back memories of Woody Allen's ANNIE HALL [1977], but Kohli has remodeled HUM TUM on the lines of Chopra and Johar movies primarily.

    HUM TUM has laughter in abundance, but an undercurrent of emotions continues to move alongside. Now to the crucial question, does HUM TUM work? For those who appreciate romantic comedies for both aspects of the genre [the 'romance' and the 'comedy'], HUM TUM works to an extent!

    Writers Kunal Kohli and Siddharth Raj Anand have packaged several humorous incidents in the first half. A majority of light moments are sure to be appreciated, although the tongue-in-cheek humour is the kind that would appeal more to the city audiences than the hardcore masses.

    The post-interval portions begin on a promising note, but things begin to deteriorate in this half. The story actually comes to an end when the two foes turned friends develop a deep bond, but aren't able to express their feelings for each other.

    Director Kunal Kohli succeeds on two fronts; he has shot the film exceedingly well and has also extracted fantastic performances from not just Saif and Rani, but also from every character in the film. Knitting animation with the storyline was a novel concept, but it hardly contributes in moving the story ahead. Besides, the locales of Amsterdam, Paris and New York provide a rich visual feast for the cinegoer.

    Casting is one of the film's strengths. It would be hard to imagine anyone other than Saif as the wisecracking Karan. Saif's style is perfect for this role; he makes Karan insufferable and likable at the same time. And, beneath it all, there beats the heart of a caring man. His arresting performance is sure to sky-rocket his fan-following amongst the youngsters.

    Likewise, Rani's effervescent personality infuses Rhea with buoyancy, and, later in the film, she too shows a vulnerable side. Rani takes a giant leap as an actor, making you realize that she is amongst the finest actresses of her generation. Not only has Rani looked gorgeous, even her performance is flawless. Even though Saif and Rani's characters are polar opposites, their interaction has a charm and warmth that most film pairings lack.


    Seems like another regular love story movie.

    Worth watching only because of Saif and Rani.
