Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV said: "It is a tale that grows gently on you, leading you by the hand into the inner world of its tormented characters. This dazzling debut film is an unmissable gem."
Rachit Gupta of Filmfare in his review said: "You need to watch this film to realize there's so much hidden meaning to scenes, situations and words. Yes there are no commercial movie gimmicks, no glamour to startle your senses. But there's an abundance of artistic passion and emotion here to keep you thinking about life and death, long after the movie is over."
Gayatri Gupta of Firstpost said: "And finally, the moment when the film ends with a lovely, light piece of uplifting conversation at the river Sangam in Allahabad — when life, it turns out, is a memorable journey. Go on, take a dip in Masaan's waters."
Ananya Bhattacharya of India Today writes: "And more than just one watch. Masaan does with you what spring does with Neruda's cherry trees."
Shubha Shetty-Saha of Mid-Day writes: "A gutsy debut by Ghaywan, who dives deep into the subject in hand and comes up with a little gem. Sensitive writing by Varun Grover makes it more valuable."
