“They have beautifully lived and portrayed Atal Ji's character, making the audience feel it too. Condensing the story of a personality like Atal Ji into three hours is a challenging task, which has been excellently done. Must watch," wrote anchor Richa Anirudh.

Main Atal Hoon: Critics’ review

“The release of the film in this election year is certainly no coincidence," wrote Times Now, “Main Atal Hoon examines Vajpayee's contribution to India as a statesman but it isn't able to balance that properly with what he was as a regular man as well."

“While Pankaj Tripathi’s imitation of Vajpayee’s particular speaking style and body language is spot-on, his character has as much weight as an election poster," wrote

The movie’s screenplay is “shaky", but the director’s work is “commendable", as per India Today. “If you can survive the slow-paced first half, the second half will seem like a good watch," it added.

The Times of India also mentioned the slow pace in the first half while calling it a “visual treat". “The film’s narrative, treatment, and stellar portrayal by Pankaj Tripathi will leave you enamoured," the publication wrote.

“His first half compels us to yawn with less impressive dialogues but the second half depicts the true valour of the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and weaves a pure intent to declare Ayodhya as Ram Janmabhoomi. It picks up like how and somehow stays with you strongly," wrote Free Press Journal.
