Taran Adarsh (critic and trade analyst) says, “PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO too abounds in clean, inane humor that will have you rolling with laughter. what works is the fact that the journey to the destination is full of amusement and entertainment. PHATA POSTER NIKHLA HERO brings back memories of old-fashioned comic entertainers.”
