ReceptionEdit

Critical responseEdit

Renuka Vyavahare of The Times Of India gives three and a half stars out of five and says, "Despite the film’s languid pace, this one’s a winner — hair or no hair. It also reminds you that good people end up with good people, always."[10] Hindustan Times rates the film with two and half stars out of five and states "...despite its short-comings, Gone Kesh, is one feeble yet brave attempt."[11] Anupama Chopra of Film Companion gives two and half stars out of five with remarks, "Warm and humorous but may have been better as a short film." and concludes the review as, "Despite the right intentions and strong performances, the sweetness of the story barely lingers."[12] Rahul Desai writing for Film Companion gives three and half stars out of five and finds it, "disarmingly simple and well-acted story that resists the temptation of looking good in order to feel good."[13] Nandini Ramnath of Scroll.in writes, "The parents turn out to be the movie’s most beautiful characters. Vipin Sharma and Deepika Amin turn out solid performances, and movingly portray a couple who have sacrificed their dreams for their only daughter."[14]
