Deccan Chronicle critic Rohit Bhatnagar gave three stars to Varun Dhawan starrer and wrote in this review: "October surely doesn’t have a solid plot but the journey of two people and their unnamed relationship is tearful. It is certainly not a typical boy-girl love story which has a tragic end but has a decent amount of relatability. Perhaps, it is Sircar’s weakest film which holds no surprise but still manages to leave with a heavy heart. Well, that's his trademark!"
Bankrolled by Rising Sun Films & Kino Works, 'October' is scripted by Sircar's frequent collaborator Juhi Chaturvedi. It has been touted as a unique story about love that goes beyond the regular love stories.
