There's some nice chemistry between Sameer and his faithful buddy Gattu who together make varied attempts to replace the missing car before Daddyji finds out. Their banter alone makes for some of the film's funniest moments. If you don't understand Punjabi, it would be advisable to take along a friend who does. Not hard to like, don't expect much more.
Critic Score: 3/5

This isn't a laugh-out-loud comic romp. But some of the gags the film rustles up are genuinely funny and bear the stamp of a degree of cleverness that one rarely encounters in an average Mumbai comedy.

Don't expect an out-and-out comedy, the film is a light-hearted family entertainer with a message for the youth. Do take your dad along for it, in his gaddi!

It’s a ride, a goofy, forgettable ride. One that throws up a debutant director with promise and actors who deserve to be in more films. Give it a whirl. Like a Rado wristwatch that a character automatically dismisses for fake, this film may not look like it but happens to be the real thing.
Critic Score: 3.5/5

I sat through the first half looking for something to surprise me. But, post interval, things perk up. The plot catches speed, the writing smartens, and some twists leave you smiling. And the actors come out better too, more filled out, taking a cue from the lines they are made to say. At its best it is placid, and sort of middling, this Mere Dad Ki Maruti.
Critic Score: 2.5/5
