Thumbs up by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks Cinema.com ...o QUEEN comes forward to break this questionable one sided thought process of our own society in an entertaining style with a clear message that yes a girl too has the right to say NO as per her own choice, without feeling any kind of shame or insult.

Thumbs up by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...Ultimately, it's Kangana Ranaut who makes you root for Rani from the word go. The best way to describe her fabulous performance is by confessing that I forgot I was watching Kangana. It's a raw, nuanced, delicately comical perf... full review

Thumbs up by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...Bahl’s second directorial venture is a delight: his first, ‘Chillar Party’, had some spark, but nothing prepared me for this.
