The world's largest traveling film festival received an overwhelming response from both Patna and Gorakhpur. Uri session with real-life heroes was received extremely well and the audience showed their support for the army with flags in Patna. Vinay Pathak and Richa Chaddha's in-conversations had to be forcefully ended upon already exceeding the prescribed time limit and the questions from the audience wouldn't cease.
Ravi Kishan and Anoop Soni's in-conversation in Patna and inauguration ceremony in Gorakhpur were a huge hit. Especially in Gorakhpur, as Ravi Kishan is rooted within the region in his ventures. A lot of movie fans also attended TVF masterclass. Jhalki screening – Inaugural movie directed by Mr. Brahmanand Singh and produced by Kailash Satyarthi Children's foundation was accompanied by 2 people's narratives on how the foundation helped them get emancipated from child labour and formed a huge emotional connect with the packed hall.
