    Critical response

    The movie has received positive reviews from critics .Awarding the film 3.5 in a scale of 5, Litty Simon from Malayala Manorama wrote: In his first directorial venture as a filmmaker, Srikanth aptly portrays various emotions – innocence, the love, the family bonding, the failure, and achievements. With a simple plot, Aby is a movie that can be enjoyed by all age groups. The feel-good motivational drama, Aby, made with some genuine intentions is a darling film...

    In her review for The Times of India ,Deepa Soman rated the film 3.5 out of 5 stars.She lauded the crew for brilliant casting, right from the child artiste who plays the little Aby, his parents (Sudheer Karamana and Vineetha Koshy), his friend Kunjoottan played by Aju Varghese and his lady love Anumol by Mareena Michael.Overall, this is one of those films with an unconventional underdog as the hero, for whom you would root with tears in your eyes and a smile on your face, and come out of the hall with a wholesome cinematic experience.

    Arathi Kannan of The New Indian Express has wrote that Aby is the kind of a movie where wishes written on the blue skies are made into a reality with sheer earnestness and persistence.She has mentioned that 'Aby's story makes for a scroll that rolls down to read ‘optimism’ in bold, Aby stands true to the inspirational movie genre and strives towards the goal, flitting through serendipitious meetings and the right-person-at-the-right-time situations.
