Hiren Kotwani | Times of India: 3/5 | 5.5/10
If only the makers had cut it short by 15-20 minutes, Meenakshi Sundareshwar could have been more enjoyable. Discounting the dragging parts, Meenakshi Sundareshwar is worth a watch for it’s hatke subject of long-distance marriage, Sanya and Abhimanyu’s effective performances ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 6/10
Sweet And Undemanding. If Haseen Dillruba gave us a twisted take on the aftermath of marrying a stranger, this film makes a solid case for why it continues to be the preferred mode for so many young people ... Full Review

Prathyush Parasuraman | Film Companion: - | 5/10
Is So Preoccupied With Sweetness, It Forgets To Be Anything Else. But it is Abhimanyu’s sincerity which often feels like stupidity, that is a hard-sell. I guess there is a charm to being clueless and subdued, but pushed to a point, the personality rings hollow ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2.5/5 | 5/10
A languid film let down by its unbelievable conflict. The Abhimanyu Dassani-Sanya Malhotra doesn’t satirize or send up the whole arranged marriage thing. It is what it is, and it is the lived reality of millions of young Indians ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5 | 5.5/10
Abhimanyu Dassani conveys the gawkiness of a man with limited social skills. Sanya Malhotra exudes enough charm and controlled vivacity not be swamped by the occasional verbosity around her ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2/5 | 4/10
It may well be argued that this unquestioning acceptance of tradition accurately reflects most Indian homes. True enough, but if this film’s aim was to romanticise tradition, then its lack of energy and spark makes it an ineffective endorsement of arranged marriages ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3/5 | 6/10
Meenakshi Sundareshwar is a Basu Chatterjee slice-of-life packaged in a glossy ad film whose source of heart are its two genuinely likeable leads ... Full Review

In a movie that misses the big picture of whatever it is trying to say, Malhotra is among the few grace notes ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 3/5 | 6/10
Meenakshi Sundareshwar is as wholesome as a bowl of piping hot payasam. While it is loaded with subtle flavours (in this case, moments), a little more focus on the basic ingredients (writing) would have made the taste even more memorable ... Full Review

Ravi Bule | ABP Live: 3.5/5 | 7/10
शादी की इस कहानी में है दूरियां भी नजदीकियां भी, सान्या और अभिमन्यु ने छोड़ी अभिनय की छाप. यह नए जमाने में रोमांस की नई जलिटलाओं वाली कहानी है. ऐक्टरों ने बढ़िया काम किया है और फिल्म के रंग-ढंग में साउथ का फ्लेवर है, जो स्क्रीन को सुंदर बनाता है ... Full Review

High on Films: - | 5/10
While the existence of clichés could have been forgiven with a detailed look into their bond, the film resorts to an easy way out and makes it hard to do so ... Full Review

Ready Steady Cut: 2/5 | 4/10
Brutally overlong, predictable, and unconvincing, Meenakshi Sundareshwar tells a love story better left long-distance ... Full Review

WIONews: - | 6/10
Meenakshi Sundareshwar is sweet, picks up effortlessly and their charming coy looks to one another radiate through the screen but only if it reached somewhere towards the second half of the film ... Full Review

Bollywood Bubble: 3/5 | 5.5/10
The two remain committed to their respective characters, throughout but the flat tone storyline and lack of any interesting conflict, makes it a dull film. It is difficult to endure it all the more, given its length ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | News9 Live: 3/5 | 6/10
