In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Sui Dhaaga 2.5 stars out of 5. "Sui Dhaaga tells the classic tale of an underdog fighting parental cynicism, scheming acquaintances and his own shaky resolve on the way to realizing his full potential, but it isn't as if the character of the woman is condemned to secondary status in the film's overall scheme of things," he wrote.

Sui Dhaaga released with Vishal Bhardwaj's Pataakha. While the movie opened to mostly positive reviews, it failed to translate the critical appreciation into box office numbers.
