The Aanand L rai-directed film opened to fabulous reviews, and critics especially praised the film's lead star Kangana Ranaut.
In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee said: "Kangana Ranaut, in a magnificently effective double role, powers the comic drama forward with an effortless act that requires her to embody two diametrically divergent faces of Eve in small-town India." (Movie Review: Tanu Weds Manu Returns)
He also added, "Kangana overshadows all else. But that is not to say that Madhavan is put in the shade. He knows exactly how to underplay his part so as not to get in the way of the film's intended emphasis." (Also Read - Love Triangles and Polygons: Bollywood Geometry Lessons)
