The story is about their interactions and exchange of ideas in the ICU room that changes Alis perspective towards life.The film received mixed reviews from critics.
Taran Adarsh from Bollywood Hungama gave the film 2/5 and said On the whole, STAYING ALIVE is more of an experiment that holds appeal for a tiny segment of cineastes -- those with an appetite for meaningful, festival films. Avijit Ghosh from Times of India gave it 3/5 stating that Staying Alive is a subtle yet engrossing human drama.
