Critical response[edit]

Devesh Sharma reviewing for Filmfare rates the film with 3.5/5 stars. He praised performance of Barve and supporting cast. He wrote, "Mukta Barve makes you experience all the stages through her heartfelt performance." He recommended watching the film for its positive message, and concluded, “Watch this well-meaning film for its positive message about a disease which has been affecting around four million people in our country alone."[10] Mihir Bhanage of The Times of India gave the film three stars out of five, and praised the performances of Mukta Barve, Prasad, Satish Alekar and felt that a 'crisper editing' would have been better for film. Concluding, he wrote "Smile Please has its highs and lows, the latter overshadowing the former at times, but as a complete film, this one is definitely better than Phadnis’ first. And true to its title, the climax brings a smile to your face."[11]
