Overall Word of Mouth (Critics) - Positive

1. India Today -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
With 8 episodes of 55-60 minutes each, Farzi is an intriguing watch, but with too much detailing, it tends to get exhausting in parts. Although the show manages to keep its viewers hooked till the end, the makers could have easily avoided getting into the details of printing a counterfeit currency note.

2. News 18 -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
While Farzi might not be as great as The Family Man, it serves as an entertaining binge-worthy series to watch over the weekend. Don’t burden it with The Family Man’s baggage and you’ll enjoy it.

3. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
There are too many F and MC, BC words, which is like an all too familiar calling card for such shows on OTT, but thankfully here only a few of them feel out of place. The dialogues on the whole are very relevant and well-suited to each character. Overall, ‘Farzi’ is a refreshing and intensely gripping scamster saga whose pros far outweigh its cons.

4. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> n/a
Inimitable Vijay Sethupathi livens up show that is in service to its star Shahid Kapoor, not its plot. Shahid Kapoor, except for the odd scene when he allows himself to be vulnerable, doesn't give us anything novel. This is just another variant of a long line of Shahid Kapoor roles that's cementing his starry persona.

5. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 3/5
While the other actors immerse themselves into their parts, Shahid Kapoor's performance is too look-at-me-I-am-a-star, till the last episode, when he pulls his act together and captures the nuances needed.

6. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Farzi is a thriller packed with everything that the genre demands and then some. It is a tangled tale of transgressions that is never ever in danger of veering off course. Binge-worthy all the way.

7. Moneycontrol -

Rating Score -> n/a
A mostly engrossing crime drama from ‘The Family Man’ makers. KayKay Menon is wonderful as the kingpin, Raashi Khanna plays the part of an RBI employee with spunk; hearing Vijay Sethupathi speak in Hindi is weird at first, but it grows on you; Shahid Kapoor is likeable as the anti-hero.

8. The Hindu -

Rating Score -> n/a
Shahid Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi are splendid, but sell us a sham beneath the shine. The brooding intensity and impish charm of Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi provide plenty of goosebumps moments and a lot to chuckle about, but eventually the series leaves one with the feeling of being sold a dummy.
