Critical reception[edit]

Mar Gaye Oye Loko received mixed reviews from different websites. According to reviewers the new experiment doesn’t met expectations. However, the attempt is feeble, perhaps justifying balance between films as a medium of entertainment, and that of social messages.

Jaspreet Nijher of Times Of India reviewed Mar Gaye Oye Loko by giving 2.5 critic's rating out of 5. About the comedy, reviewer said, "The famous five of Punjabi comedy- Binnu Dhillon, Jaswinder Bhalla, Karmjit Anmol, BN Sharma and Gurpreet Ghuggi, manage to helm the film’s comic timing and lift it out to its true genre of a romcom." Criticising dilemma made in film reviewer said, "Straddling this dilemma costs the film its comic dose as the director juggled his two themes. The film is also lampooning singers like Sidhu Moose Wala’s violent songs, Parmish Verma’s infamous shooting incident to bridge this dilemma whereas music, given by Rahar Fateh Ali Khan and Guru Randhawa, saves the day, being refreshing and soulful." Reviewer appreciates the work of Sapna Pabbi, saying, "TV actress, Sapna Pabbi (who plays Simran), is just another pretty addition to Punjabi cinema, perfectly towing the precedence of being only a dolled-up prop to the script."[20]

Reviewer of website BookMyShow praised the direction work of Simerjit Singh, saying, "Simerjit Singh’s direction has its trademark humor and it works for most parts of the film. He is better off in emotional and romantic scenes." Reviewer also praised the script written by Gippy Grewal whereas criticized the dialogues, saying, "At times, the characters try too hard to make you laugh. The dialogues also seem forced at places." On last added, "On the whole, Mar Gaye Oye Loko is a fun, clean film that works despite the over-the-top comedy. It takes funny jibes at death and the afterlife and that’s where the film succeeds. Do not compare it with Carry On Jatta 2 or expect the same team to deliver a similar laughathon and you would enjoy the film thoroughly." [21]
