In a recent interview with news agency IANS, Varun said footfall increased after the opening day: "A day after the release, the audience began to increase considerably. That was very reassuring. People have connected with the film. What we see in October is what everyone goes through in life." Varun also reportedly cut down his fee for October and when asked about that, this is what he told IANS: "wasn't even thinking about money when I got the chance to do October. I just wanted to be part of this film."
October opened to good reviews and "mixed word of mouth" (as mentioned by Mr Adarsh) but the 30-year-old actor's performance was hailed by both the critics and the audience alike. In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee writes: "This is the performance of Dhawan's life because there is no obvious 'performance' in this author-backed act."
October is directed by Shoojit Sircar and also marks the Bollywood debut of Banita Sandhu.
