K of India Today gave 2 out of 5 stars and noted “the technical aspects and performances as the major positives, but criticized the script and clichèd story.”

V. Harshini of Film Companion praised the “technical finesse”, which actually saved the film from “narrative setbacks.”
Siddarth Srinivas of OnlyKollywood rated 3.25 out of 5 stars and described “On the whole, Fight Club turns out to be a really good ‘boys action film’ that is worth watching for its action sequences. If we don’t mind the wafer thin plot, the film is one to spike up your adrenaline.”
