BollywoodLife in their review said, “The story of the film is the winner, hands down, and in a film that stars The Irrfan Khan, this is saying a lot. The film, much like the game, Pac Man, that Dev keeps playing, is all about who devours who, before getting themselves killed. It is a dark, dark comedy that is as good as dark chocolate. There’s humour in the mundane and you only realise that when it is pointed out to you. Which this film does in good measure. It is such a delight to watch a film that doesn’t rely solely on the performance of its lead cast to shine.” Watch this space for further updates
