He has good screen presence, but most importantly, he acts very well."  Prathna Tiwari of BollySpice said, "The newcomers definitely are off to a good start. In particular Akshay Oberoi who has great screen presence, delivers his dialogues confidently and also proves to be eye candy for the ladies."  Sarita Tanwar of Mid Day noted, “Newcomer Akshay Oberoi is confident and delivers.”
