CRITICAL RESPONSE :
Pallabi Dey Purkayastha from the newspaper, The Times of India happen to give a 4.5/5 rating and later termed this film as a film that is an 'ode to Bollywood'. She also found the tonality of the film’s narrative light, subtle, funny and emotional, all at once. While praising this film’s writer and director Hardik Mehta for his work, and the entire ensemble of the cast for their performance, she finally concluded by saying that this film was about the sheer ability to fulfil unfinished dreams, even when the things are not going your way and are in your odds.
