The film's first look is very eye-catching and refreshing. The actors and actresses seem to be in sync with the era. Netflix said that they matched the youthful energy, hope and excitement of the sixties era. As per Netflix, it is a, "A musical experience bursting with youth, rebellion, friendships, first loves and everything young adult, it still promises to have something for every generation. We can't wait to see the new kids on the block!"

Netflix India has been under criticism for run-of-the-mill content. The OTT giant is treading carefully as of now. The Archies comes from the stable of Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti. As we know, these two women are good story-tellers. Fans of Shah Rukh Khan are very kicked about the show as it marks the debut of Suhana Khan. Amitabh Bachchan's grandson Agastya Nanda is also there along with Khushi Kapoor. Some years back, Shabana Azmi already gave a thumbs up to Suhana Khan saying that she had the skills to become an exceptional actress.
