The Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta in her review mentioned, “What makes the film worth a watch, despite some problems, are the flashes of well-done humour, the skirmishes between the players, and the rousing finale. The period is done beautifully, and despite the predictable sports film tropes–underdogs coming up top, conflicts being resolved, last minute fortune reversals—the younger players keep up the tempo, with debutant Sunny Kaushal doing a stand-out job.”
