Anushka Sharma portrays the role of a possessed girl Rukhsana in the film. You cannot accuse her of not trying hard, but the film is so poorly-written, and so scatter-brained that nothing can rescue it, not even a leading lady who is determined to do something different with her producing heft. Pari is Anushka’s second experiment with one of the most underrated genres in Indian cinema – horror. Despite a long weekend, the film has failed to attract crowds. Helmed by Prosit Roy, the film also stars Parambrata Chatterjee and Rajat Kapoor. Poor Parambrata Chatterjee is left trying to hold up the story, such as it is, and is the only one left standing.”

After box office failures like Jab Harry Met Sejal and Phillauri, Anushka Sharma no doubt is yearning for a hit. The film, however, did not work wonders for the actor. Indian Express film critic, Shubhra Gupta in her review for indianexpress.com wrote, “Anushka Sharma plays Rukhsana with a great deal of bloody enthusiasm. The film struggled through the weekend and has managed to collect a total of Rs 15.34 crore in its opening weekend. Moreover, its Holi release turned out to be another obstacle on its way to success.
