Reception edit

Tatsam Mukherjee from Firstpost highlighted the shows inability to engage with the viewers and other underwhelming aspects of the show.[8]

Nandani Ramnath from the Scroll.in appreciated Pranjal Saxena and Shashank Kunwar energetically churn out cod dialogues, however she wasn't impressed with the loosely executed plot.[9]

Pramit Chatterjee from Mashable stated the show as "A Mind-numbing Political Thriller For Internet Edgelords And Ignorant Boomers" [10]

Prathyush Parasuraman from Filmcompanion stated in his review "Actors like Vyas capable of good performances play caricatures of stereotypes and it is heartening to see them unfettered, and un-embarrassed by the writing, which is click-bait-with-zero-weight."[11]
