Reception

Critical reception

Season 1

Pradeep Kamadana of Envoy web gave a review that it is a breezy comedy and a must-watch series. Rahul Dev showed good performance without spoiling the appearance. Harsh Beniwal, Anveshi Jain and Divinaa Thackur did extremely well & justified their performances. The writer and director Chirag Arora had done a great job for thoroughly enjoyable series. On the other hand, he criticized that if there was subtitle provided for Punjabi slang could have reached to more audiences.

Binged has given 5/10 stars on their platform stating that it is partly enjoyable. Criticized that screenplay is inconsistent and narration was superfluous. But also highlighted that the performances of Rahul Dev and Nirmal Rishi were good, the story idea was amazing and the steady humorous sequences.

Pakaao team has given 3/5 stars on their platform stating that it is watchable. The acting of Rahul Dev was great & Harsh Beniwal proved to be a perfect match for Soggy. Cinematography, special effects & editing could have a better scope of improvement. But the direction was nicely done by the director.

Season 2

Binged has given 1/10 star on their platform stating that it is "The Daddy of All Cringe fests". Criticized that screenplay and writing are without purpose or direction, story is terrible which does not make sense. Performance of all the actors are weak and not given any justice. Also the casting selection were poor.

Aparna Hajiris of LetsOTT has given 1/5 star stating that it is "As pointless as blunt pencil". Actors Harmeet Mamik & Vidya Malavade had saved the web series with some performance and their chemistry was good. The script writing didn't make any impact. The screenplay and production quality are not up to the standards as compared to any other Zee5 or AltBalaji show.

Tannavi Sharma of Leisurebyte gave an overall 0.5/5 stars stating that "What Even is This Crass and Unfunny Creation!". The web series is not making any sense and it is falling under cringe category safely. Concept of an orphan looking for his father is a serious story and this web series made fun of it which dealt with insensitive and annoying manner.
