For Here or to Go may have stirred my empathy, but it did little to peak my interest.

As is the case in so many first-time feature films that don't make the cut, For Here or to Go? may have worked better as a short film that chopped out all the narrative chaff.

The flaw in the film is that it caters to stereotypes.

To describe For Here Or To Go? as mediocre would be a compliment. It is a pathetically written, terribly edited and directed film in which the dear young leading man gives it more of himself than it deserves.

Ali Fazal remains likeable despite all the mess surrounding him and Rajit Kapur as a veteran techie pining for India is all sincere in a film that he doesn't deserve to be trapped in.

For Here or To Go is one of those indie flicks that have a good premise but lack depth in storytelling.

The subject matter's topicality doesn't provide sufficient compensation for the many dull patches in Rucha Humnabadkar's comedy/drama about a young Indian immigrant struggling to get his work visa extended.

Humnabadkar, Bhilawadikar and the actors build up enough goodwill that you're inclined to forgive the production's shortcomings and even get a little goosebump-y.

There's nothing new about immigrants to America making compromises in their new country, but in the comic drama For Here or to Go?, the story gets a chai-infused, Silicon Valley-mired twist.

Despite its clunkiness [it] is an occasionally amusing peek into a culture that makes a lot of contributions to the Bay Area and the country, and it also makes some salient points about ( ... ) the US's immigration and visa policies.

In attempting to address its many concerns, the film's agreeable, lightly satirical tone gives way to increasingly didactic dialogue and a stalling pace.

For Here or to Go? follows the rom-com template a little too closely at times ... but makes up for it both for the issues it raises, and an ending that defies expectations in a very satisfying way.

It's funny, romantic, thoughtful, even silly.

[It] bites off more than it can chew...it is sometimes clunky and heavy-handed as it switches tones...The acting is all over the map and there's even a Bollywood-style dance number...Still...the subject matter is topical and the focus is fresh.

Bhilawadikar's too-busy script nevertheless scores legitimate points ...

"For Here or to Go?" offers an insightful group portrait but lacks imagination in a romantic subplot and (except for a requisite Bollywood-style dance number) is visually dreary.

The result is a movie that's neither serious nor humorous enough, as if no one involved could tell the difference.
