Taran Adarsh ​​added, “The #Buy1Get1 offer is extended until day 2 (Saturday), so an upward trend is definitely to be expected.”

In a NDTV Reviewfilm critic Saibal Chatterjee said Madgaon Express a solid 3 out of 5 star rating. He wrote, “Madgaon Expressproduced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment, significantly recalls the spirit of their Dil Chahta Hai. In terms of style and substance, however, it's a film that wants us to brush aside our worst setbacks with bursts of laughter, which, not indirectly, is perhaps what the doctor would prescribe as a balm for the times difficult and tense times that we are experiencing. In.”

Saibal Chatterjee continued, “The film revolves around three boys from Bombay in the 1990s. Living in a much less stressful time, they, lured by the simple promise of beaches, girls in bikinis and alcohol, dream of going to trip to Goa. Their parents put obstacles in the way. The desire remains unsatisfied.

Nora Fatehi, Chhaya Kadam and Remo D'Souza are also seen in Madgaon Express.
