Ruchi Kaushal from Hindustan times said " Despite good production values, the show is letdown by the humdrum nature of the crimes and their predictable solutions.[5]

Sankhayan Ghosh from film campanion was not completely impressed with the narrative of the film, but praised solid performances by Kaushik Sen as Suranjan, Sauraseni Maitra, Ronjini Chakraborty and character acting of Jaideep Ahlawat[6]

Firstpost termed Lalbazaar "A must watch, one of the finest thrillers in recent times" and appreciated the performances of the entire cast.[7]
