Reception[edit]

Pallabi Dey Purkayastha of The Times of India giving the film two stars out of five, feels that the film fails to hold attention of audience for too long and calls it a half-baked broth of a thriller. She concludes, "Khamoshi' shines in the beginning but then it becomes ice-cold half way into its murky narrative."[13]
