IndianExpress critic Shubhra Gupta in her review wrote, “‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ , not to be confused with the ’82 film of the same name, is a manual of how Not to make a contemporary romantic film.”
“The one to watch is fresh import from Pakistan, the interestingly-named Mawra Hocane. Her role requires her to be the kind of submissive, spectacles-swaddled ‘good’ girl who has difficulty in snaffling IIT-IIM types (which, according to this film, are the only ones to go for), who needs to be made over prettily to rescue her from permanent behenji-dom oblivion, and the kind who has to look for approving nods from the nearest male before taking a decision, and so on,” she added further.
The film clashed at the box office with Sunny Deol’s starrer ‘Ghayal Once Again’ which is considerably doing better business. (Read: Ghayal Once Again review: Sunny Deol the actor is still a lethal weapon)
