Commenting on the opening, Nandu Ahuja, Sr. VP, India Theatrical, Eros International Media Limited said, "Despite the IPL fever, PAATHSHAALA has opened to a good response across the country and, we believe, has struck a chord with the audiences. Collections have remained steady from Monday as well; we are hoping the film maintains this response in the coming days too".

PAATHSHAALA, with its socially relevant story, sheds light on the shortcomings and wrong doings in today's education system. Producer, Shaira Khan says, "We always wanted to produce a film with a noble thought and we feel that that audiences have accepted the film with open arms".

Director Milind Ukey added, "We designed PAATHSHAALA with very simple story telling but high emotional quotient due to the seriousness of the subject of the film. This way we have tried to ensure that it will be understood by all levels of audiences in India.

Speaking on audience reactions at multiplexes, Girish Wankhed, Dy General Manager, Corporate Communications, Cinemax India said, "PAATHSHAALA has opened to a positive response across our 94 screens in 27 locations. We feel that Shahid fans are thoroughly enjoying the film and the music has also been appreciated. This is a film for the entire family and we feel that word of mouth publicity is growing."

With moving performances by Nana Patekar, Shahid Kapoor and Ayesha Takia, PAATHSHAALA challenges the increasing immoralities and unethical practices in our education system.
