Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The larger problems are the usual ones for low-budget romcoms: haphazard plotting, clumsily staged and overly broad comedy and clunky dialogue.
Rotten: A bright, colorful slab of faux-multiculturalism, When Harry Tries to Marry is a substandard romantic comedy gussied up in Indian drag.
Rotten: Nothing new under the sun, but Padrai spices things up just enough.
Rotten: If there's a fresh idea in "When Harry Tries To Marry," I couldn't find it.
Fun loving optimistic movie of the year
The critics obviously are people who hate life and have not seen the movie in full or at all. If you are an optimist and look at life as if the glass were half full, this movie is for you. Too much bad in the world today---this movie is just what the doctor ordered to escape from the day to day grind. Put a smile on your face and enjoy this romantic comedy!

Enjoyed going to see this movie very much. It is a refreshing, light and fun. It was a great movie to watch with my kids. I was glad to see a movie that didn't have the same faces you see in all the movies. Loved it.
A fun ride between cultures
I saw the film in AMC theaters and would recommend it to everyone. When Harry Tries To Marry is a story of a young man's journey to find his true love. Rather than risk his heart, he decides to follow the traditional route of getting an arranged marriage. Clearly, life isn't so simple and Harry has to figure out whether he's ready for a lifelong commitment with a person he barely knows.
The film is colorful and vibrant and takes us on a fun ride between cultures. The latter scenes in India boast a sense of beauty & tradition that we rarely see in films nowadays. By the end, you will be wanting more and coming back with friends.
