October opened to five-star reviews on Friday. Film critic Raja Sen said that Varun Dhawan "shines in this exquisite drama,' while Saibal Chatterjee (who gave the film 4 stars out of five) said that October is a "heartfelt drama," adding, "This is the performance of Varun Dhawan's life because there is no obvious 'performance' in this author-backed act."
October gave a stiff competition to last week's Blackmail, starring Irrfan Khan and two-weeks-old Baaghi 2, which features Tiger Shroff.
