One of the much awaited movie of this year, Raanjhanaa released yesterday. As we know the expectations were sky-high.. It did not disappointed the both the critics & audience. All the critics(including the strict ones who don't praise films easily) were blown away by the director & writer's vision & the cast's superb works. Here is what the critics have to say about the film's female lead Sonam Kapoor. 

(1) Sonam Kapoor does a good job with her role as well. She goes through a helluva dramatic arch. Her journey from a small town girl who falls in love at the drop of a hat to a social activist who puts her heart in jeopardy is impressive. - Filmfare 
Raanjhanaa Rating: 4/5

(2) Sonam Kapoor seems to have bettered her acting skills and she looks quite convincing before and after interval. - Zee News Raanjhanaa Rating 4/5

(3) The genius was always there within, All she needed was one big 
moment and it has come in the form of Zoya. She came close in MAUSAM, but only just. Finally, she stands tall with a role that oscillates from being shy and in love to cold and ruthless. She handles the swing with equal aplomb. You don't know whether to hate Zoya or love her. || 'This is Sonam Kapoor's breakthrough moment. Her TEZAAB.' Glamsham Raanjhanaa Rating 4/5

(4) 'As for Sonam Kapoor, she's a complete revelation! In a born-again performance she sparkles and shines' || 'If Rai's remarkable love tale seems so richly sublime and vibrant it's partly because Sonam and Dhanush have submerged themselves into their characters until we see only their love... rather, his love.' IANS Ranjhanaa Rating 4/5

(5) Sonam Kapoor is fantastic. She displays her true acting prowess in this film. In this de-glam role, she looks equally beautiful and fine. - Showbiz Bites Ranjhanaa Rating 4/5

(6) Sonam Kapoor is a revelation.. this is her finest performance till date" - India Glitz Ranjhanaa Rating 4/5

(7) With Raanjhanaa, Sonam has set a standard for herself and has grown by leaps and bounds. It's good to see her stepping out of her fashionista bubble. -Films of India Ranjhanaa Rating 4/5

(8) Sonam Kapoor surprises with such a neat performance and now this will be her 'it' film" - Box Office Capsul Ranjhanaa Rating 4/5

(9) Sonam was waiting for a role that would make the spectator sit up and notice it and the one in RAANJHANAA gives her that opportunity. The headstrong and emotional persona comes across so well in this film. In addition, like DELHI 6, she's devoid of makeup and that makes the character so appealing. This film is a huge leap frontward for Sonam as an actor || As for Sonam Kapoor, she is a complete revelation! In a born-again performance she sparkles and shines creating a kind 
of sunshine-girl who is so taken up with herself that she doesn't get the chance to see what affect she has on the other until it's too late. Especially in the last half-hour when she must play out the murky game of politics Sonam comes to grips with the very complex emotions of her character and carries the role to a very dignified and fulfilling closure. Bollywood Hungama Raanjhanaa Rating - 3.5/5

(10) Sonam hits her peak form - Mumbai Mirror Raanjhanaa Rating 3.5/5

(11) Watch it for the super artiste Dhanush and also for Sonam's rising acting graph – which has definitely reached an impressive point - Bollywood Life Raanjhanaa Rating 3.5/5

(12) 'But it is to Sonam Kapoor that Raanjhanaa belongs. She delivers a rock-steady star turn, moving from innocence to cynicism, and from demure to worldly wise in a smooth arc. She does not miss a trick in conveying the emotional ups and downs of a small-town girl who grows out of her moorings over a period of nearly a decade' NDTV Raanjhanaa Rating 3.5/5

(14) 'But it's Heer whom the film belongs to. Projecting vulnerability as well as steely resolve, Sonam Kapoor carries out her age graph sensitively and belts out her(sonam) most mature performance yet.Just for her, go for it. - Deccan Chronicle Raanjhanaa Rating: 3/5

(15) 'Sonam is at ease playing Zoya. She carries the heavy burden of making a smooth transition from being the effervescent girl next door to someone who is dealing with sudden loss. Also full credit to her for looking the part.' ||
'Raanjhanaa has a fantastic first half. Watch it for Dhanush and Sonam's performances and some colourful one-liners and dialogues.' DNA Raanjhanaa Rating 3/5

(16) 'A nose ringed Sonam looks like a dream even in regular attire of kurta, jeans, cardigan & stole. She does well in the light scenes' Rediff Ranjhanaa Rating 3/5

(17) 'Sonam Kapoor is wonderful as Zoya. She enacted her part with the perfect charm and beauty' Page 3 Bollywood Ranjhanaa Rating 3/5

(18) Sonam Kapoor is more than just a pretty face this time. She matures big time as an actor and puts in a confident and expressive act. -Diva Online Ranjhanaa Rating 3/5

(19) Sonam Kapoor, who does some of her best work here, going smoothly from innocent to manipulative to cynical, without ever losing Zoya's inherent vulnerability. - IBNLive Ranjhanaa Rating 3/5

(20) Sonam Kapoor looks very pretty and plays Zoya beautifully. The character of Zoya has tremendous range and Sonam does full justice to it. - Komal Nahta (No Rating)

(21) 'Sonam as Zoya is this time really appreciable. From playing a school girl with innocence to her transformation to a mature and serious character, she has managed it brilliantly.' || 'Overall, Raanjhanaa is the movie of the year with a difference where you will see some great performances along with good story. So, watch out Raanjhanaa for Dhanush and Sonam.' News Track India (No Rating)

(22) 'Sonam has never looked so pretty & she balances it with an effervescent performance going beyond being just eye-candy' Film Street Journal (No Rating)

Sonam is fabulous in the film...and I don't think she has ever looked so beautiful before, as she looks in Raanjhnaa...and that too in simple cotton kurta's and almost no-make in half the film!

i hope she really did improve and can actually act, unlike Katrina who was praised for JTHJ for improving but was really still sh*t in the acting department
