Speaking about the response, Kashyap had said, “I was surprised that there is an audience for a film like this in the West. This is my third experience (with international audience). Every time I have gone out (to film festivals) with a film, we have got good response be it Dev D or Gangs of Wasseypur or Mukkabaaz. “Every time I have stemmed out and set out to thinking I want to make a story – not complex but relevant – that reaches out to audiences everywhere, it has worked. They have become bigger hits at the festivals.” (Also Read: Mukkabaaz actors are hopeful that the movie will win everyone's heart)
Since the film is made in the modest budget, it is expected to recover its investment through its theatrical run itself. The film has received great reviews from the critics for its direction and star performances. Our critic Urmimala Banerjee gave the film three stars and said, “If you like realistic cinema with some fine writing and kickass performances, Mukkabaaz will not disappoint you a bit. The biggest takeaway is that it is a courageous film that does not shy away from calling a spade a spade. Anurag Kashyap holds together the elements with finesse appealing to all cinema lovers.”
