A day after the ZEE5 premier on November 4th, Tadka movie has garnered a mixed response with the Times of India critics’ rating pegged at 2/5 stars and Way2OTT ratings of 3/5 stars

Initial response to the movie was that the scenes are a little drag and somewhere in-between the movie Tadka (2022) had lost the charm of the original movie Salt N Pepper

As expected, Nana Patekar is one of the plus points for this romance drama with a shared love for cooking as the core theme.

ZEE’s Tadka marks the OTT debut of Prakash Raj as director and general feedback is that he did a fine job but it wasn't enough for a movie that has been remade again and again in multiple languages

With more than 20+ successful movies planned to be released in the first half of November, it can be said that Tadka: Love is Cooking failed to spell the magic for audiences.
