The film has not only impressed the audiences but it also opened to great reviews from film critics. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, gave the film three stars out of five in his review for NDTV. He wrote: "In a role that is right up his alley, Amitabh Bachchan is classy. Taapsee Pannu is right on the button as a cornered woman on the brink of a catastrophe, as is Amrita Singh as an aggrieved mother who has nothing to lose."
Badla is Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan's second collaborative project after the 2016 courtroom drama Pink. Badla was produced under Shah Rukh Khan's production house Red Chillies Entertainment.
