To put things in the right perspective, JODI BREAKERS is routine, clich├ęd and formulaic, at least initially. Add lazy and unenergetic too. Director Ashwini Chaudhary doesn't get a grip of things, except in a couple of sequences. But the twist and turns in the post-interval portions are of an interesting variety [writer: Aakash Kaushik], with a major chunk of the second hour succeeding in making you erase whatever misgivings you may have had from the first hour. On the whole, JODI BREAKERS has an engrossing and smartly executed second half that tilts scales in its favor. The right dose of drama and romance, besides a trendy, harmonious musical score, only act as toppings.
Critic Score: 3/5

At first glance, Jodi Breakers has a lot going for it: an unusual and interesting lead pair, fabulous outdoor location (Greece, in this case) and foot-stomping music. But the movie is let down by a script that lacks fizz and connect. Director Ashwini Chaudhary's venture begins as a comedy but gradually morphs into romance and loses momentum in the second half. Jodi Breakers isn't entirely without merit though. Madhavan is earnest. And Bipasha looks stunning. Together they try to make the film better than it actually is. But it simply isn't enough.
Critic Score: 2.5/5

First, I can't classify the film. The makers have said it's a film about dysfunctional relationships. It's neither a love story, nor a sex comedy.A "twist" in the "plot" is timed just before the interval, when you are seriously wondering if leaving midway in an empty theatre is an option.The music by Salim Sulaiman blends into a dysfunctional film.
Critic Score: 1.5/5

Not really, not with this film. It won't be a happily after ever at the box office because Jodi Breakers, a film that had a lot of potential, is seriously flawed.There could have been comedy, there could have been romance, there could have been moments that make you go Awwww!Instead, the dialogues are juvenile, the situations are oft-seen (how many times have we seen a lusty love guru eye-balling a woman's curves!), the supporting cast fails to, well, support and lead pair share no chemistry.
Critic Score: 1/5

The strength of Jodi Breakers lies in its stupendous script. The pre-interval suspense element and twists leaves one enthralled. What add to the glee are some logical explanations of situations in the life of each character which justify their behavioral patterns. But, as the second half begins, screenplay gets extremely monotonous with some formulaic moments which lack novelty. Predictability further takes away the charm. Mind-boggling performances, strong storyline and dialogues leave Jodi Breakers in the category of one-time watch films. Editing, cinematography and poor portrayal of second half in terms of direction and screenplay proves fatal for the film.On the whole, Jodi Breakers falls flat in its intention to showcase a well-knitted plot. Watch out this one only for Maddy and Bips.
Critic Score: 3/5

What's Good: A few comedy scenes; the music. What's Bad: The defective screenplay; the uninspiring and meaningless second half. Verdict: Jodi Breakers is a dull show. It will not be able to break even. Loo break: Several. Watch or Not?: Watch it for the performances and the music, but do not expect much else.
Critic Score: 1/5
