    The Hollywood Reporter commented on Mushrooms that, "The film's abstract naturalism does create an austere portrait of a crass and careless human society but any larger meaning gets lost amid the film's many non-events and preening nihilism." The Variety review noted the "extremely slow-burning story", saying, "... the main element uniting Jayasundara's plot strands is a sense of torpor..." A review in the online film magazine "Notebook" praised the film, noting that it artistically portrays "...Cinematic dreams and nightmares, visible intuitions of the world around, visual understanding of what corruption of the society and corruption of the soul can do." Sight & Sound of the British Film Institute praised the film stating, "Disconcerting though the plot may at least initially be, the film has its wild as well as some comic moments that soon win the viewer over."

    A scene of the film with explicit frontal nudity has caused uproar in India, especially in Kolkata, where the film was mainly shot. A version of the film without the sexually explicit scene was arranged to be shown in the 2011 Kolkata Film Festival. Director Jayasundara admitted that there are several versions of the film, and some versions do not contain the sex scene. He also admitted that he was surprised to witness negative feedback due to the inclusion of such sex scene in his film.
