The Akelli movie got decent good reviews from audiences and critics. Over 5.5k people rated this movie 8.5 stars out of 10 stars on IMDb, which are amazing reviews from audiences. Saibal Chatterjee from NDTV rated this movie 1.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “This tale of a woman cornered and fighting for dear life had the potential to be a thrilling, edge-of-the-seat ripsnorter. It falls way, way short. The lacklustre Akelli is a film best left alone.

Abhishek Srivastava from The Times of India rated this movie 3 stars out of 5 stars and said “Akelli thrives within the confines of enclosed spaces, but falters when it ventures beyond them. In an era dominated by cutting-edge, terrorism-themed series on various streaming platforms, the film struggles to maintain its impact.

Rishil Jogani from PinkVilla rated this movie 3 stars out of 5 stars and said “Akelli is a well-made survival thriller-drama which could have done with a little trimming. The film is spine-chilling, gut-wrenching, and full of heart. It is made with utmost honesty and sincerity. A few scenes in the film may be disturbing to watch so please watch the film at your own discretion.

Toshiro Agarwal from Times Now rated this movie 2.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “The film is an intriguing cinematic experience that defies expectations, embracing a complex theme of terrorism and survival. Pranay Meshram’s directorial debut is notable for its technical prowess, especially in sound and VFX. While the film’s pacing and thematic execution have their shortcomings, the engaging performances and suspenseful moments make it worth a watch.
