Madhu Jain of India Today wrote ″Unlike the title, there is nothing in between about this film. It hits you in the face like a backhand slap - albeit a bejewelled and manicured to glossy perfection hand. Lajmi has trespassed into an area where brave directors have feared to tread: the world of hijras, up close and personal.″[3]
