Critical reception[edit]

Times of India rated the film 3 out of 5 and wrote "Anjala is an uneven film, with filmmaking that is hardly remarkable and a script that lacks finesse and focus. Yet, the film makes it clear right in the initial scenes that it is more interested in going after our emotions."[5] The Hindu wrote "The foundation on which Anjala is built, is wonderful. But alas. If only the ambition of the makers was to create something more substantial."[6] Behindwoods wrote "In a nutshell, Anjala might remind you of a similar spot that might have existed in your town too, but it does not drive you to go back there although that may have been the intention of the director."[7] Hindustan Times wrote "As much as the theme of Anjala may be unique, the film’s scripting and treatment leave a lot to be desired."[8] Moviecrow wrote "Anjala is an honest attempt with an excellent intent. But intent alone never suffices".[9] Silverscreen wrote "A fascinating plot, marred with unnecessary elements like an insipid romance, some crass comedy, and the juvenile treatment of the screenplay leaves us with one overriding thought."[10]
