The Radhika Apte film is genuinely frightener
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
But then all's forgiven as it is after long that one watched a 'horror' film which really makes one scared, instead of being disgusted or amused
Phobia is a canny flick that places known genre conventions in fresh light, the kind that bestows new life on them
When the lead character is Radhika Apte, then the audience feels her fears (what large eyes she has!), her panic attacks, and begin to feel what everyone around her feels...
Manisha Lakhne, Now Running
For Kalki and Naseer's effortless performances, this movie deserves to be watched.

In the end, Phobia is an unnerving movie that plays skillfully on the fear of the unknown.
Mohar Basu, Times of India
Watch this film for the many surprises it springs and, of course, for Radhika Apte in full flow.
Phobia is satisfying and fun - both words you don'€™t get to use often with Hindi horror films

Another factor that may affect the film is the low key promotion of the film due to which many people aren't aware of PHOBIA's release. But for them who have an appetite for the unconventional thrills and psychological mind games, don't miss PHOBIA.
