Terrific performances. Happy to see telugu in between and cross over with family man characters. Congratulations on another masterpiece, Raj and DK!"

"So impressed with Raj and DK's style of storytelling, character building, premises, and detailing. Farzi takes you to the world of counterfeiting bills and the psychology behind it. It makes you aware of how financial terrorism crashes the country. Brilliant show," Another user commented.
"I just watched Farzi on Prime, and it’s superbly made. Amazing action thriller with top-notch performances by Shahid Kapoor, Bhuvan Arora, Kay Kay Menon, and Raashi Khanna. "Mazedaar series after a long time," one user commented.
Another user wrote, "The performance of the cast, production value, screenplay, cinematography, and BGM are the positives of Farzi. The only drawbacks are the lags and length of a couple of episodes. Shahid Kapoor is terrific in the role of Sunny, and his performance will take you to the vibes of Kaminey and Badmaash Company. Vijay Sethupathi’s Hindi dubbing is good; he gives the required effect with his performance as Michael, and his performance is superb. Kay Kay Menon’s performance and characterization add much-needed intensity to Farzi. Seeing him in such a role was a delight."
"Farzi is a stellar watch. Raj and DK outdo themselves with this original crime caper. Outstanding storytelling. A dream cast of Shahid Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi, and Kay Kay Menon at the top of their game. Brilliant performances by one and all. The writing is sharp and witty. Great stuff," tweeted a user.
