Critical reception[edit]

The Hindu's Baradwaj Rangan wrote, "India Pakistan is one of those not-so-bad films, thanks to solid contributions by M.S. Baskar...and Manobala...I wished we’d seen more of them and less of the lazy comedy track written around Jagan. N. Anand has a knack for the absurd. I’d be interested in watching a pure comedy by him — but please, nothing more than a couple of hours".[7] The Times of India gave the film 2.5 stars out of 5 and wrote, "India Pakistan is the kind of film that you might not feel compelled to watch, but if you do catch it, you might not mind it. It is unremarkable in every way with its share of problems but still manages to be a mildly diverting entertainer".[8] The New Indian Express wrote, "Stronger in content than style, India Pakistan, is ideal summer fare, it strikes the right chord for the most part and is one of the better comic capers to appear in recent times".[9] Sify wrote, "Director Anand has made India Pakistan in such a way that the film is highly entertaining and it happens mainly because of the characterization and dialogue deliveries of both MS Baskar and Pasupathy who rocks big time", going on to label it "a pucca commercial comedy entertainer which is tailor made for family audiences".[10]

'Southern Cinema Leaks' gave 3 stars out of 5 and stated, "India Pakistan is a masala romantic-comedy movie, also attempted to make thrilling experience over the course of this movie. Vijay Antony and debutant Sushma Raj done best performances what they can do for such a script. Pasupathy and M.S.Bhaskar are perfectly fit for their roles. So, anything that could have been to make this flick much better that should have been done by director, N.Anand, who failed to keep the momentum".[11] Bangalore Mirror wrote, "The film is indeed a breezily funny romcom and the first time filmmaker has served it plateful, most of the scenes being enjoyable most of the time", rating it 3 out of 5.[12]
