Critical reception :
he film opened to mixed reviews. Deepanjana Pal at Firstpost described the writing as sloppy. commenting that. “it’s more a series of YouTube sketches than a proper story. Indian Express felt that Kapoor’s character Jagjinder Joginder was “badly-written”, noting, “He can be such a natural charmer, but here the charm offensive is not allowed to stop. and finally just overtakes him. Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV. felt that while there were “flashes of smart writing”. that there was also “[a lack] of sustained narrative force, especially in the second half”. Chatterjee described the interaction between Kapoor and Bhatt as “spontaneous chemistry”. an opinion that was not shared by the Indian Express reviewer, who wrote. “Shahid and Alia look good together. but there’s not very much else they manage between the two of them.
