I, Me aur Main received mixed reviews from critics. Alisha Coelho of in.com gave 3.5 stars out of 5 and said that the movie was "proof that a movie with John Abraham as the lead can be your time and money's worth and that Bollywood can (if it tried) make love stories that don't defy common sense and good taste." Nishi Tiwari for Rediff.com has given 2/5 stars and says I, Me Aur Main has its moments but falters badly with its plot.
I, Me, Aur Main opened to poor collections. The film had little growth on the weekend, but the collections were still low and was eventually declared a flop.
