Boxofficeindia.com reported, "The biggest surprise for the film is West Bengal, as this circuit is not keen on comedies and Kartik Aaryan films have also done less here, but this film is very strong, maybe due to the horror factor and native characters and language used in the film."
On Sunday, Kartik visited Gaiety cinemas in Mumbai to watch his film but found the show to be packed. He shared his happiness on Instagram and said that he failed to get a ticket for himself. The film received positive to mixed reviews and went on to garner a good response in theatres.
The Hindustan Times review of the film read, "The Anees Bazmee film does invite comparisons with the original but manages to hold its ground, aided by strong performances from Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani, and Tabu."
On Friday, Kiara's rumoured boyfriend, actor Sidharth Malhotra, also praised the film on Instagram. He wrote, "# BhoolBhulaiyaa2 got laughter, thrills, and entertainment. Kudos and best wishes to @Kiaraaliaadvani, @aneezbazmee, @kartikaaryan, @muradkhetani and the team. Kill it. "
