Our in-house film critic, Smrity Sharma wrote in her review: “Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar’s chemistry and effortless performances save the film from being a drag affair. However, they are getting repetitive with the kind of roles and characters they are choosing to do. I really hope they try something new the next time.” She also added, “It is an arousing foreplay that doesn’t give you the climax you hoped for but leaves you with a happy ending.”The film received a 2.5 star rating in the India.com review.
The film addresses the concern of erectile dysfunction in males. The film produced by Aanand L Rai and directed by R S Prasanna released last Friday on September 1, 2017.
