The film received negative reviews upon release.
- Times of India rated the film 1 out of 5 stars, saying that "It shows how a film, no matter how nicely conceived, can run out of control for want of craft."
- Rediff.com also rated the film 1 out of 5 star and criticised that "there is little to say about this film other than it does not seem to be deserving of your time."
- Sify.com rated the film as avoidable and also said that "Josettante Hero will find a place among the worst films released during recent times."
- Nowrunning.com rated the film 1/5 and said "a film that attempts to take a satirical look at the industry, but which in the process ends up making even a great mockery of itself."
- TheaterBalcony.com rated film 1.5/5 and said "At the end film failed to give the real content even after having a great concept. A group of talents were just wasted in this movie. Josettente Hero has no intention to entertain the audience."
