Directed by Rajkumar Gupta (director of critically acclaimed, Aamir) and produced by UTV Spotboy, the film received a rave response from critics applauding Rani Mukherjee and Vidya Balan's performances, as a fiery and ambitious media reporter and the understated sibling of Jessica Lall respectively. The contemporary and cutting edge music in the film from the talented Amit Trivedi was another major highlight of the film, which stirred the audiences in advance of the release.

"NO ONE KILLED JESSICA is an issue-based story which could very easily have been slotted as another docu-drama, but our strong belief, backed aggressive marketing, wide scale distribution and of course a superbly entertaining film, have resulted in NOKJ emerging both a creative and commercial success", said Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO, Motion Pictures- UTV.
