Reception[edit]

Rohan Naahar of the Hindustan Times rates the film with two out of five stars. He feels it has muddled story which is low on comedy, and writes, "Like the inconvenient cutlery it is named after, there’s little reason to try it if there are alternatives to be found."[6] Shrishti Negi of the News18 also rates the film with two out of five stars and opines that the film never rose to its true potential.[7] Anupama Chopra of Film Companion opines that the humour inherent in a sitcom has not come out as the film scenes are preposterous.[8] Akash of High On Films wrote, "Despite having so much talent in the acting department, the script hardly seems to have any direction or a sense of purpose."[9]
