Panga opened to good reviews on Friday and reviewing the film for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee gave it 3.5 stars out of 5 and wrote: "The intelligently scripted, deftly directed and well-acted sports drama is peopled by characters who are easy to relate to. Unlike average Bollywood films of the genre, Panga does not ever strain credulity even when one might feel that it could have done with a little more momentum."
Panga has been directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and produced by Fox Star Studios.
