  •  Times of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-4
What the Fish has a promising premise and an intriguing start but runs out of steam way too soon. A few minutes into the movie and you'd already guess what the climax could be. The non-linear narrative manages to engage you in the beginning but lack of humour and interesting characters

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-3
The worst thing about the film is its stale and trite writing. For a comedy, there were no cleverly written sequences. Though the film’s first half is better as compared to the drab second half, overall the script itself is extremely amateurish leaving behind a few dangling loose ends

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-0
The thought of spending 108 minutes in front of a washing machine watching your clothes spin around as they dry is probably not your idea of entertainment. But it sure beats being trapped in a cinema watching What The Fish! - easily the year's most exhausting and vacuous film.

  •  Bollywood Hungama - Rating-4
Making a situational comedy certainly takes time and ingenuity, more so when the film revolves around the happenings within one house over a period of one month. WHAT THE FISH is exactly this -- a situational comedy of errors.Sudha Mishra aka Maasiji [Dimple Kapadia], a 67-year-old

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-1
What the Fish begins with the disclaimer that no fish or plants were harmed during the making of this film. I believe that, but what about the harm done after the making? Specifically to those of us hapless individuals whose job necessitates seeing this grotesquely awful film.

  •  Rediff -Raja Sen Rating-2
Be it the eternally cool Rumble Fish, the fake-Facebooking documentary Catfish, Andrea Arnold’s evocative Fishtank, Tim Burton’s marvellously magical Big Fish and, head and shoulders above them all, one of the finest comedies in all of English language cinema

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-5
At a time when every actor aspires to be the "hero" and stars who refuse to share screen space with another of the same sex, it's always refreshing to see an ensemble cast at work with the script dictating how much screen time each character gets. And even though What the Fish's above-the-line attraction

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
Going in, 'What The Fish' seems promising: Dimple Kapadia in a lead role, surrounded by such solid Delhi staples as Manu Rishi and Manjot Singh, and story revolving around a locked house, a flashy fish and a money plant. How bad can it be? Pretty darn awful, as it turns out, and that becomes apparent

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-4
A control-freak aunt (Dimple Kapadia) is going away for a month leaving her beloved home in her niece’s hands. This aunt is quite a character. Disapproving of everything from the international airport, Delhi cabs, her niece’s modeling career, to her doofus boyfriend – “Maasi”

You should not use her toilet. You should not sleep on her bed. You should not do this. You should not do that. Sudha Mihra (Dimple Kapadia), a 67-year-old divorcee, living in Vasantkunj Delhi blurts out a host of instructions to her niece's fiance before she is about to leave for a month-long trip to the US.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-6
What The Fish, Gurmeet Singh? You had a cracker of a first half, which you prolonged in the second. Too many character introductions in the latter part of the movie, especially the boxing angle, knocked the sense of what you had so sensibly put up.
