Watched #ChandigarhKareAashiqui, good message for today’s generation, who don’t understand Gender preference. And desperate people only focused on sex scenes and how funny it is for a guy to sleep with #Transgirl. Wake up #India. Awesome movie @ayushmannk @Vaaniofficial

Though most reviews were on the positive side of the spectrum, some watchers felt that the movie didn’t have as much depth as it should have had.
Have a loot at the Twitter reviews:
#ChandigarhKareAashiqui is a sincere albeit superficial attempt at giving way to a conversation on gender and sexual orientation. This is an important film about a trans woman who wants nothing but acceptance and love, but it’s not bold enough to make her the protagonist.

@Abhishekapoor‘s #ChandigarhKareAashiqui is a thoughtful & carefully plotted exploration of prejudice against assigned gender identity. The twist is expected but the manner in which it unfolds is arresting. @ayushmannk is in top form. @Vaaniofficial is terrific & a big surprise. pic.twitter.com/sfnJ4dshXx
