He called it a highly outdated sports drama.

One user said in his Skater Girl review that the movie has won their heart. They called it a sensational and empowering story. One netizen tweeted, "I'm watching Skater Girl on Netflix and I'm only crying like every few minutes so I think I'm good." 

One user called it well-intentioned and honest in its approach. He added, "Heartwarming fairytale story of a Girl taking flight & enjoying freedom." The film is breaking patriarchy in a subtle way and is laudable. However, he added, that certain topics addressed such as the caste system and education did not gel well.
