Our critic, Urmimala Banerjee, gave 3.5 stars to Chhichhore and wrote, “Sushant Singh Rajput has a ball playing the young Anni and his comic timing is good. Shraddha Kapoor does not have much to do as the young Maya but fares excellently in the emotional scenes. Naveen Polishetty, Tahir Raj Bhasin and Prateik Babbar play their parts well. However, Tushar Pandey as Mummy and Saharsh Shukla as Bevda are fabulous. In short, Nitesh Tiwari has made his cast deliver and how! Khairiyat and Pagle Fikar Not are songs you will enjoy. In a light-hearted manner, Chhichhore delivers a message about how our self-esteem is what matters ultimately in life’s journey. It touches upon the flaws of the education system but it is not preachy.’
