Prominent critics inclusing Subhash K. Jha of IANS, Bhavikk Sangghvi of PlanetBollywood and Siddharth Kannan of Oye 104.8 FM, Mastii TV rates the movie at 4-star. Subhash K. Jha says, "Indeed The Ankur Arora Murder Case is a far cleverer, wiser and relevant film than most of what we get to see these days. At a time when Bollywood is raining bubbles and effervescence about jawani diwanis and yamla paglas this sobering clenched disturbing medical thriller comes as an invigorating cloudburst. The film makes out a scathing and rousing case against medical malpractices.
This is the best film on medical ethics since Vijay Anand's Tere Mere Sapne. Bursting at the seams with acting talent director Suhail Tatari's restorative drama hits us where it hurts the most. The conscience."
Times of India and IBN 7 provides 3 1/2 star rating. TOI says, "Tatari is a winner in his choice of a subject. The story that has been researched from a true life incident does provide meaningful insights about the medical fraternity and facilities."
Aaj Tak and Bollywood Hungama rates the movie at 3-star. Aaj Tak says, "It's a must watch!" Taran Adarsh says, "On the whole, ANKUR ARORA MURDER CASE illustrates and spotlights on the gaffes in the medical profession most persuasively. A heartfelt effort that deserves to be watched!"
