Talking about the movie film exhibitor Akshaye Rathi told Indian Express, "Phillauri is not a mass entertainer. Unlike a Baahubali 2 or Bajrangi Bhaijaan, this film doesn't need to go to every corner of the country. Makers have promoted the movie keeping these things in mind. It has a limited release on about 1100 screens."
He further added, ''There is hardly any film today that stays in theatres beyond two weeks (unless it's some big star or big banner film). Those who wanted, have already seen Badrinath ki Dulhania."
