ReceptionEdit

Udita Jhunjhunwala of Firstpost called the film a "uncomplicated and sweet story" but felt the runtime was stretched.[6] R. J. Alok gave a positive review and called the film "relatable".[7] Nandini Ramnath of Scroll praised the performances of Anjali Patil and Karan Dave and said that, "Despite its narrative holes, the 90-minute film has been directed with confidence and has identifiable characters."[8] Rahul Shanklya of Film Companion gave the film a rating of 3 out of 5 and said that, "It’s sweet, even when it gets repetitive (90 minutes does seem long here), because the makers don’t employ the usual crutches accompanying such themes".[9] Mayank Shekhar of Mid-Day was impressed with the film and said that, "Meri Nimmo, produced by Aanand L Rai, is a rare Hindi film that tells you as much about childhood as life in a village."[10]
