In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Pataakha 3 stars. "Pataakha is a cracker of a film that blends the dynamics of a rustic burlesque with a stylised cinematic sensibility. Vishal Bhardwaj resorts to a loud theatrical manner in telling the tale of a deep divide," he wrote.
Pataakha is a story of two sisters (Sanya and Radhika) who cannot stand each other. However, they get married in one family and the story revolves around them. Pataakha also stars Sunil Grover in a pivotal role. It is Radhika Madan's debut film while Sanya Malhotra's second after Dangal.
Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan's Sui Dhaaga was Pataakha's competition at the box office. Sui Dhaaga has so far earned over Rs 55 crore.
