ReceptionEdit

Sangeetha Devi Dundoo of The Hindu called it as a "faithful adaption" of its original. She compared it with 2018 Telugu film Sammohanam and 1999 American film Notting Hill.[4] Another citic of 123Telugu gave a rating of 3 out of 5 and wrote that "The Baker And The Beauty banks on the subtle emotions that are evoked through the unlikely love track between the lead pair. But the emotional connect subdues towards the end, which doesn’t help the cause. Nevertheless, the series can make for a decent one-time watch."[5]
