Thumbs up by Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times ... Makkhi is the most outlandish film I've seen in years. It's also the most fun I've had in a theatre recently. ... full review

Thumbs up by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...Kannada actor Sudeep plays his part of the cold-hearted villain with true comic book flair and even a cartoonish tinge.... full review

Thumbs down by Fatema H Kagalwala, India Entertainment ...However, it holds onto good old story-telling conventions and serves a tight and engaging dramatic piece but as a lasting experience it falls way short.... full review

Thumbs up by Meena Iyer, Times of India ...The portion involving a tantrik is pure hog-wash and more suited to a B-grade horror film than here. But this is a minor irritant in an otherwise enjoyable film. ... full review

Thumbs up by Shomini Sen, ZEENEWS.COM ...the film works mostly because of two reasons - its creativity and to make a mundane run of the mill revenge story so appealing.... full review
