Why Cheat India opened to average reviews. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Why Cheat India 2.5 stars out of 5. "Why Cheat India is a low-key drama that might not meet the expectations of the constituency that swears by a Rohit Shetty. Emraan Hashmi keeps the complex character on a tight leash even as the suave, smooth-talking conman indulges in activities that aren't merely amoral but also border on the felonious," he wrote.
Why Cheat India is the story of Rakesh Singh, played by Emraan Hashmi. Rakesh makes money by making intelligent students write papers for rich students, applying for medical and engineering colleges.
Why Cheat India has been directed by Soumik Sen.
