Rafay Mahmood of The Express Tribune said, "The film itself is nothing more than an extended chase sequence. The shots are neat and well-framed but aren't grand enough to explore the natural beauty, a cardinal sin when treating any road movie." Gibran Khalil of DAWN said, "Instead of embodying the spirit of a road trip film by evoking a smooth sense of movement, Lahore Se Aagey feels more like a collection of short sketches. I'll admit that it looks like the LSA team had a ball making the movie." The both critics rated the film 2/5.
Shubham Bahukhandi of Dekh News rated 3.5/5 and praised its direction, while said that it has the worst screenplay ever and its music is not even average.
Hamza Shafique of Dubai Desi Reviews gave 1.5 out of 5 Desi stars and commented, "Lahore Se Aagay for me is more like a standup comedy act which one might enjoy but not expect from a silver screen entertainer."
