In his review for NDTV Movies, Saibal Chatterjee writes: "Watch Irrfan Khan's film for the relevance of the questions it poses and the remarkable quality of the acting."

Hindi Medium is about a mother's desire to send her child to an A-list school. However, the parents do not have the background required by the school. The film emphasizes how Hindi as a language is looked down upon by English speaking people and the commercialization of the education system. Hindi Medium clashed at the box office with Mohit Suri's Half Girlfriend starring Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor and Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's Jattu Engineer.

Half Girlfriend got a good start at the box office. The film earned Rs 10 crores on opening day, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh. On day two, Half Girlfriend managed to collect Rs 10.63 crore, taking the total collections to Rs 20.90 cr.

Meanwhile, Irrfan Khan will next be seen in Rajiv Dhingra's Firangi.
