In his review of French Biriyani, Indianexpress.com’s Manoj Kumar R wrote, “What makes this film truly cosmopolitan is each character remains culturally distinct and yet coexist. They speak different dialects and yet they understand each other so well. And is there a better way to pay tribute to a city which is as diverse as Bengaluru?”
He added, “But, how does French Biriyani fare in the humour department? Not bad. The first half of the movie is full of improv humour following the terrifying experiences of the French national. And add to that Danish’s flawless Urdu mixed with urban Kannada dialect, you get plenty of funny moments over the course of two hours. If you are a bit familiar with Bengaluru’s street talk, then this mindless comedy gets even more relatable.”
