Critical reception[edit]

News Minute wrote that the film is "predictable" and "fails to connect".[8] Sify wrote "The plot and the circumstances are cliched and gives you a sense of deja vu, but it is the slick packaging and presentation that makes Thuppakki Munai an engrossing watch."[9] Firstpost wrote "On the whole, Thuppakki Munai is edgy and new in treatment, and watchable to a large extent."[10] Times of India wrote "It all sounds exciting on paper, but the execution onscreen doesn’t quite match what we expect from a film in this genre. The tone keeps veering between gritty action and full-blown melodrama [..] and this robs the film of intensity."[11]
