In his review for NDTV, Raja Sen gave Veere Di Wedding3.5 out of 5 stars. "The writing is assured and nuanced, with telling details about these girls, their men, and their families. After a while as the over-the-top background sounds settle - or we get used to them - the film's cleverness becomes apparent. Veere Di Wedding lands several blows to the patriarchy while never giving up its masala entertainer roots. It is the kind of film that needs to work because of what it says," wrote Raja Sen.
Veere Di Wedding ranks at number 5 in the list of top five opening weekend films of 2018:
