The film received mixed reactions from critics. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave one and a half stars to the film in her review. She mentioned, "Mohit Suri’s cinematic universe is routinely dark and twisted, and in his best work, his characters have been edgy and interesting. But Malang’s twists don’t really take you aback, and the identity of one of the perpetrators is more of an eye-roll than anything else."
