India Today wrote: "Kaun Tujhe is the female version of the typical Arijit Singh romantic song - which are essentially paeans for the lover, who is exclusive, one in a million. Once again, the song is a winner because of the simplicity of its composition, singing, lyrics, and arrangement, which is not intrusive. Amaal Mallik lets his music breathe and take its time to come to its own in this film and that is a great quality."[4]

Times of India wrote: "'Kaun Tujhe' tells the love story of MS Dhoni and his late girlfriend, Priyanka Jha. The song shows how the couple enjoyed simple joys of life such as a stroll in a market wherein Dhoni walked with a helmet on to avoid catching attention, highlighting the struggles of celebrities with the paparazzi. Dhoni's ladylove passed away in a tragic accident in 2002 when the successful innings of Indian skipper had just begun."[5]
