Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film two and a half stars. “For a Hindi film, the idea that provider Papaji and representative Mummyji can think happily-ever-after is radical, and it’s like entering a brave new space.
But we reckoned without the deep longing for conservatism at the core of this film by Raj Mehta of the Dharma banner, who takes one step forward and one step back, keeps all the wild ideas in check and turns everything into a joke that lands with a thunk. Please don’t take us seriously even though we play with these serious ideas, because all we want to do is make you laugh: that’s the main principle of the film, because it’s about watering down its big ideas,” mentioned Assessment.
