Koimoi: "The thought of remaking already existing gems is alien to me altogether. And of the ones that are from the recent past is bizarre. Maestro might have been a spectacular film if Andhadhun didn’t exist, but that ‘if’ is a privilege the film doesn’t have."
Indian Express: "When people can access the original from the comforts of their home, why should anyone suffer through its duplicate? Of course, it makes sense if a filmmaker wants to remake a film if he or she has a new take on the material that could turn the original idea on its head and radically challenge the perspective of the viewers, who have already seen the original film. Then, there is some value to it."
TOI: "That said; Maestro might not be the classic Ilairayaaja number it set out to be but it still remains as catchy as the latest peppy number. That makes it worth a watch." Maestro Promotional Song Shuru Karo: Nithiin, Tamannaah Bhatia and Nabha Natesh’s Track Is Catchy and Groovy (Watch Video).

Gulte: "For the audience who have not watched the original, this Maestro would be interesting with a lot of surprises. The neat screenplay and cinematography also make it good watch. They will enjoy and intrigued by the plot strength with good twists. But for the audience who already have watched Andhadhun, the comparisons take the front seat and it will be up to them."
