Noted film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the opening day collection of Varun Dhawan-Banita Sandhu starrer. He wrote, "#October has a slow start... Biz will have to witness miraculous growth over the weekend + maintain a strong trend on weekdays to leave a mark... Word of mouth is extremely mixed... Fri ₹ 5.04 cr. India biz."

The business of Shoojit Sircar directorial is not very surprising as 'October' is a film strictly meant for the niche audience.

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.
