Finding Fanny has received critical acclaim. Raja Sen of Rediff.com gave the film four stars and said the film gives “much to smile pleasantly at [and] to guffaw at.” A reviewer from Bollywood Hungama said, “Writer-director Homi Adajania has dared to break all conventional rules and manages to serve an absorbing and entertaining story that keeps you interested [...] It will surely appeal to the target group of a discerning audience that values sensible entertainment.” Sweta Kaushal of Hindustan Times commented that “all the actors have done a brilliant job, fitting perfectly in their characters” and described the picture as a “not-to-be-missed take on life and love”. In a four star review, Mumbai Mirror's Rahul Desai regarded the film as a breakthrough film involving commercial actors, saying “This film is exactly the kind of brave clutter-breaking effort that most critics wish for while lamenting the rigidness of mainstream stars.” Sarita Tanwar of Daily News and Analysis praised the film for being “real, funny and thoughtful”. Filmyflavour rated the film 3.75 out of 5 and quoted that " If you are expecting a mass masala film from the director and deepika then you would certainly get disappointed. If you are a class film lover you will definitely love this film."
