Critical response[edit]

R G Vijayasarathy of scored the film at 2 out of 5 stars and says "Technically the film is average and that includes the camera work by M R Seenu. Bhagyadha Balegaara can be watched only for the splendid performances of Shivaraj Kumar and Navya Nair, and Ilayaraja's well picturised three songs".[3] A critic from Deccan Herald wrote "Saiprakash chose not to make use of these things,  thereby rendering the film a little weak. Coming back to the film, Seenu’s camera seems to have caught the flu bug, leaving an unsatisfactory finish or perhaps it is a manifestation of lack of funds".[4] A critic from The Times of India wrote "Apart from a lively performance from Shivrajkumar, Navya Nair excels. Shobha Raghavendra is brilliant. M R Seenus camerawork is okay. Ilayarajas good music score and Malavalli Saikrishnas catchy dialogues are the other highlights".[5]


The music was composed by Ilayaraja including the title song inspired from the popular folk song.[6] The audio was received with positive reviews.
