The movie generally receive mixed review's from critics. Venkatesh performance as describe by reviewer, "Venkatesh is impressive as Ashok. The character of Subash Chandra Bose did not suit Venkatesh"; "Venkatesh did well in both roles of Chandram and Ashok. However, the characterizations of these two characters are not good enough to exploit the histrionics of Venkatesh. He has shown variation in the get-up of both the characters";"Venkatesh sleep-walks in his dual role as Ashok and Chandram". Among the heroines reviewers describe Shriya's performance as "Shriya, who plays Venkatesh’s lover in the past, looks glamourous, but is there just for the usual song ‘n’ dance routine"; "Shriya is sexy and her movements are very sensuous."; " Shriya is cute in the role of innocent patriotic village belle. Her costumes are very simple as they represent the culture of 1940s. She is sensuous and at the same time voluptuous in the song of 'Neredi Pandu'.". While Genelia receive mostly negative review from the critics. This is mainly due to Genelia's character was short and weak compare to Shriya and she also fails to perform well. Technically the film receive mostly negative review because the lack of perfection in the story and the poor handling in the direction.
The movie eventually becomes a flop film in the box office.
