Noting down on an interesting point, Reddif’s review of The Married Woman highlighted that the female leads of the show are pan-sexual.

The critic adds, “if you prefer to watch The Married Woman, do it for its cast.” Appreciating the narrative and emphasizing more on the performances the reviewer wrote, “Ridhi Dogra, Monica Dogra, Suhaas Ahuja, and Imaad Shah, have all given well-contained performances. Special mention for Ayesha Raza for being a much-relatable interfering relative who has an issue with everything that her sister-in-law does.”
The critic of Hindustan Times highlights The Married Woman as a promising and gripping storyline. The show explores the emotional turmoils of a middle-class woman stuck in the safety of a typical patriarchal family very aptly, the review adds.

Also, a few fans compared it with the renowned show ‘Fleabag’ citing Ridhi Dogra’s great performance. And few of them seem highly impressed with Peeplika and Astah’s chemistry in the story.
Right at this first scene of breaking the fourth wall, I felt it was particularly inspired by Fleabag, and I wasn’t wrong. @iRidhiDogra has done it so so brilliantly! 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼#TheMarriedWoman pic.twitter.com/npbGNJMt9Z
