In his review for NDTV, Raja Sen writes: “Aamir Khan is an absolute hoot as he plays Shakti Kumaarr, cheesy and predatorial and self-aggrandizing in completely cartoonish fashion. It is a caricature – try to imagine a combination of Anil Kapoor from Taal and Kamaal R Khan, poured into an Ed Hardy shirt – but Khan brings enough nuance to the table to make even this tasteless fool appear real. He has an outburst on television because he treasures talent over cuteness, he laments the way the industry hasn’t given him any awards, and, on ‘discovering’ Insia, he declares that he’ll buy the front page of Mumbai Times in order to launch her loudly enough. Khan embraces the nuttiness with glee, and I’d love to see more of this elaborately goateed idiot.” He gave the movie 3.5 stars out of 5.
Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar released with Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again. Of this Taran Adarsh tweeted and wrote: “Golmaal Again has the potential to be a MASSIVE HIT… Like I said earlier, well-made masala entertainers will NEVER go out of fashion.”
