SpotboyE Editor Vickey Lalwani rated Batla House with 3.5 stars and wrote, “John Abraham is at his impressive best, sinking into the character like there's no tomorrow. Hmmm... maybe his best performance till date. Watch him in the scene where he says goodbye to his wife Mrunal Thakur in the car. Watch him in the scene where his senior tells him to not refuse the medal of honour. Watch him in the scene where he has a long discussion with Nora Fatehi. The list is long.”
“The action sequences are just finesse and the camerawork, excellent. Advani has done a good job, if you overlook a bit of repitiveness that tends to crop up in patches. The long and short of Batla House is that it is housed well, but yes, could have been cosier,” his review read further.
