Delhi In A Day had mostly positive reviews. There's something immensely charming and instantly likeable about Prashant Nair's Delhi In A Day that makes you settle into the plot rather comfortably, quite early on in the film said Sudhish Kamath of The Hindu. It is a complete package - a simple story well-told, natural performances and the right dose of entertainment too said Troy Ribeiro of Yahoo Movies. "As a standalone story, Delhi in a Day is watchable. But the moment it attempts to make a statement on the socio-economical strata, you feel like calling it a day." said Gaurav Malani of Times Of India. "Overall, ‘Delhi in a Day’ is a simple film which is not made with a preoccupied mind. It largely remains sweet but conveys the point strongly." said Rohit Vats of IBNLive. "Though it’s not mainstream cinema, Delhi In a Day has all the ingredients for an entertaining flick. It's a must watch." said Zinnia Ray Chaudhuri of DNA.
