B.A. Pass holds your interest as long as Bahl sticks to Sikka’s darkly twisted story. But each time he diverges -- including his choice of the film’s cheesy name the narrative wobbles. Still, it is much better than its tacky posters let on. Anupama Chopra

Overall, BA Pass is worth watching if you wish to move away from the tedious boy-meets-girl love stories that are regularly exemplified in Indian Cinema. It is daring and thought-provoking also, especially towards the last half hour of the film where you

A woman exploiting a man for her physical pleasure and a man turning into a male prostitute, however, BA Pass scores due to its portrayal of a strong woman who manipulates to achieve what shes wants and does not feel guilty about it either.
