Critical responseEdit

Renuka Vyavahare of The Times of India said that, "Uvaa (read youngsters) is one of those many films which touches upon a relevant topic but fails to capitalise on its potential." The critic gave the film a rating of 2 out of 5 and concluded her review saying that, "shoddy execution mars this potentially significant social drama."[5] Shaheen Parkar of Mid-Day gave the film a rating of 1.5 out of 5 and said that, "there’s nothing in the storyboard that enthralls you even for a few minutes."[6] Martin D'Souza of Glamsham gave the film a rating of 2 out of 5 saying that, "If only director Jasbir Bhatti had dwelt on the subject rather than concentrating on silly school scenes and even sillier teachers, we would have had a hard-hitting film on our hands."[7] Bollywood Life gave the film a rating of 1 out of 5 saying that, "Overall, the film is a poor attempt at driving home a relevant social message. A perfect case of good intention, bad execution."[8]
