Overall Word of Mouth (Critics) - Mixed

1. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 3/5
The film is watchable purely for the performances and the way it's stylised. It offer a couple of spooky scenes, too. But for a thriller, the movie deserved a far tighter screenplay, more suspense and surprise elements thrown in. But we are left needing for that.

2. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Vidya Balan’s murder mystery is unoriginal, familiar. Vidya Balan-starrer film tries hard to be original but never quite shakes off the feeling that it is treading familiar ground.

3. DNA -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Neeyat is a good attempt in this underexplored genre, but you don’t get marks for trying in a field as cut throat as filmmaking. The end result is, sadly, not as slick as it could have been with all the ingredients director Anu Menon had with her. And that’s truly a shame!

4. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Neeyat is not only sluggish, it also creates zero interest in the characters. From that bunch, only Rahul Bose stands out, because he plays Jimmy with comic eye-rolling staginess. Vidya Balan is given an unflattering get-up and deadpan look. The positives? It is not boring, and one didn't see the final twist coming.

5. India Today -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
‘Neeyat’ is entertaining as long as you can overlook the mediocre performances. A difficult ask!

6. News 18 -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Neeyat has its moments and is a sincere attempt but it isn’t engaging enough for you to feel the joy of solving a murderous puzzle or detective riddles.

7. Taran Adarsh -

Rating Score -> 2/5
#Neeyat could’ve been a taut edge-of-the-seat murder-mystery, but fails to deliver thanks to half-baked writing and too many characters… The surprises, shocks and most importantly, suspense just doesn’t work… Even the dependable #VidyaBalan is strictly okay. #NeeyatReview
