Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 4/5 | 8/10
Star Turns From Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte In Classic Whodunnit. The rest of the cast are just as good. Tigmanshu Dhulia and Swanand Kirkire sail through with ease. Padmavati Rao, Shweta Tripathi, Shivani Raghuvanshi and Riya Shukla make a tremendous quartet ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3.5/5 | 7/10
It's like Agatha Christie walked into Roman Polanski's Chinatown conversing in Vishal Bhardwaj with a smattering of Brian De Palma for razzle-dazzle -- the upshot is mesmeric ... Full Review

The Print: - | 8/10
Netflix’s Nawazuddin-Radhika Apte thriller checks all the right boxes. Honey Trehan's crime drama explores greed, corruption and the nexus between the police and the state. With an ensemble cast that delivers, this film would have dazzled on the big screen ... Full Review

A whodunnit that’s more than a criminal investigation ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: - | 4/10

Overall an exciting whodunit, with very feminine shades ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre: - | 7/10
Raat Akeli Hai is a dark thriller, structured as a neo-noir whodunit. While the ensemble cast is terrific, it is Nawazuddin Siddiqui, playing an honest cop, and Radhika Apte, who really steal the show. Siddiqui rarely misses a beat, and Apte is perhaps the only actress who can match up to his formidable presence ... Full Review

Mashable: 2/5 | 4/10
‘Raat Akeli Hai’ plays out like a classic Agatha Christie mystery teasing tonnes of family drama and most of all Radhika Apte! But can the Honey Trehan directorial, led by an out of sorts Nawazuddin Siddiqui keep you hooked? I regret to inform you, Radhika Apte’s return to Netflix has been foiled by a dull whodunit ... Full Review

Techquila: 4.7/5 | 9.4/10
Netflix's Raat Akeli Hai, directed by Honey Trehan, is a classic whodunit movie which highlights how messed up people can be. It's a movie about revenge, about the perseverance of people who have gone through terrible abuse, and it's about justice ... Full Review

S. Mullappilly | Now Running: 3.5/5 | 7/10
There is neither any phony suspense element here nor some cheap red herrings along the say. It is Radhika Apte and Siddiqui's chemistry that elevates the film to a few notches above your standard suspense thriller ... Full Review
