After watching the episode, people took to Twitter and reacted to the reality show. A person tweeted, "Big problem with this #LockUpp is the Jailor Khali. He’s really too slow that makes watching the show boring. I know he won’t be always there but today during the nomination I literally got bored due to his slowness. Otherwise, it’s absolutely #BiggBoss and fights started on day one."
Sharing a clip of two contestants fighting, a Twitter user wrote, "Tell me @ektarkapoor how it is different than Bigg Boss?" Comparing it to the reality show Bigg Boss, a person said, "#LockUpp looks like just another clone of #BIGBOSS franchise. Starstruck Indian tv audiences will bring the TRPs." "So basically this is Bigg Boss ka sasta (Bigg Boss' cheap) version," wrote another person.
A fan also wrote, "After watching the premier of Lock Upp, I can think it may give a tough competition to Bigg Boss." "Are you guys watching and liking #LockUpp? I am not able to connect to the show yet. Bore ho raha hai inke gappe. Round table conference laga raha hai (I'm getting bored with their talks. It looks like a round table conference). No tasks yet. Just random talks. Though I am not watching live feed continuously, when am watching I am log out immediately."
A few of the Twitter users also praised the show. "#LockUpp sd perform in an unbiased manner to fill the gap of #BiggBoss which is now a complete scripted show which does not care of the audience and do Manmaani to choose the winner. Hope #EktaKapoor sd release this in TV & just destroy BB as #KanganaRanaut is better than biased BB anchor," said a fan. "Watching #LockUpp and someone pls find a better sound editor and ban Sunil Pal from talking," wrote another fan.
