Surabhi Redkar of Koimoi.com said: "If you want to catch a film that can make you scratch your brain then this is not your pick. It is an average thriller, still a better choice than many senseless Bollywood films."
Meena Iyer of the Times of India said: "The film's ability to maintain the suspense right till the end makes it a must-watch for those who like whodunnits. However, a better pace could have lifted this film a notch higher."
Stutee Ghosh of the Quint said: "Go for Te3n to witness the beauty of Amitabh Bachchan. He alone is reason enough! Really! I give it a generous 3.5 QUINTS out of 5, only for him."
Jyotsna Basotia of the Statesman said: "If you're looking for a chance to scratch your brain, TE3N might be the right choice for the weekend."
Rachit Gupta of Filmfare said: "The movie definitely looks like a polished and slick product. If only the editing had made it a bit tighter."
Kunal Guha of Mumbai Mirror said: "Director Ribhu Dasgupta's job was a sticky one. Retelling a Korean story with local flourishes can be daunting."
Rohit Vats of the Hindustan Times said: "TE3N catches you by the neck and keeps you engrossed till the end credits. Amitabh's superlative form is just one of the incentives to watch it."
Swagata Dam of MissMalini.com said: "Watch this because it's a far cry from the typical potboilers. Watch this for Big B's soul-stirring performance. Watch this for Nawaz."
Vishal Verma of glamsham.com said: "TE3N is a watchable flick if you go without carrying the baggage of high expectations of a thrilling 'Kahani' post KAHAANI."
Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News said: "The ending, despite having a stellar cast including Sabyasachi Chakraborty, leaves you wanting for more."
Khalid Mohamed of Spotboye said: "All seen and experienced, don't expect a gripping masterpiece, and you won't be completely disappointed."
