The Hindu panned Abbayitho Ammayi, describing the leads' virtual relationship as "overdrawn, outdated and melodramatic." They also wrote that "Songs are good but the re-recording and background score leave a lot to be desired." Indiaglitz gave the film a rating of 3/5 stars, calling it as a coming-of-age love story with interesting plot and fair narration, appreciating Ilaiyaraaja' s music and good chemistry of lead pair Naga Shourya and Palak Lalwani. Venkat of Greatandhra gave 2.25/5 stars mentioning that the film is a big bore, except for visual quality and climax portions. He also blamed the silly story, outdated comedy and illogical sequences as the drawback of the film.
