Mayank Shekhar of the gave it 3.5 out of four stars and states, ' Wake Up Sid belongs to a sweet genre that, without doubt, flows on from 's: part Hollywood; part Bollywood; mostly coming-of-age; subtly romantic; largely original; authentic in feel; light in weight; English in expression; Hindi in language.'

Noyon Jyoti Parasara of India gave it three and half out of five stars and praised the director saying, 'Ayan Mukerji arrives in style and manages to leave his own mark on the film despite having a producer like Karan Johar whose other productions always tend to have his stamp.

He states: 'There are five things that make Wake Up Sid a delightful affair.

Rachel Saltz of argues that: 'With no big production numbers (songs play over montage sequences), a quiet style and credible characters, Wake Up Sid is Bollywood in an indie mood, a film for people like Aisha and Sid: young and educated. It may not be as hip as Bombay Beat, the magazine where the two work, but it shows that Mr.
Mukherji is a director to watch.' In one point of criticism, Sudhish Kamath of labeled the closing moments as a 'stock ending' and noted that, despite the film's overall effectiveness, the ending 'leaves you a little disappointed.'

The college sequence was shot at near Churchgate. Trivia. Ranbir Kapoor was the original choice for the lead role.
Director Ayan Mukherji wrote the film keeping him in his mind. Like Ranbir, Konkona Sen Sharma was the original choice for the role of Aisha Banerjee. In an Interview to a TV channel, Ranbir said that Ayan had already thought about casting her in the film but he didn't tell that to him. However, after the narration of the script it was Ranbir himself who co-incidentally recommended Konkona's name to Ayan mainly because she suited the character and no other actress from his generation could have played Aisha better than Konkona. Ayan Mukherji took around one and a half year to write the story, script and screenplay of the movie.
