A Mail Today article quotes Krishnaswamy as saying, “A lot of students have shared their problems with me on a personal level.”
Some of the comments to the video read: "the story is not only iitian…this story of Indian ENGINEERS…out of 100% at least 20% engineering student will interconnect somehow…2 this story” or “so relatable” or “Hats off... !!! This movie has spotlessly spoken the words of most of the IITIANs not only in IITB but over all the IITs..." (sic).
