Critical reception[edit]

Kavya Christopher of The Times of India reviewed the album and gave it a 2.5/5 rating, and wrote, "The song [Olage Seridare], rendered by Manjula Gururaj retains the oomph of the original while aiming to top the charts in its remixed avatar." and concluded writing, "It's clearly a no frills attached album".[8]

Release and reception[edit]

The film was given the "U/A" (Parental guidance) certificate by the Regional Censor Board. Following this, 27 December 2013, was set as the tentative release date by the makers.[9] However, it released theatrically on 3 January 2014.

Upon release, the film opened to mixed reviews from critics. The Times of India in its review rated the film three out of five and wrote, "With a neat script and narration, the director has done a good job of the story that keeps you gripped to the seat. While the first half is a bit confusing with too many characters, the second half compensates for it with neat narration." The performances of Malashri, Vidyarthi, Muni and Ayyappa were praised.[10] Sridhar Vivan of Bangalore Mirror wrote, "The film scores on two things: gripping narration and a taut screenplay." However he felt that the song and fight sequences were "unnecessary" and "out of place".[11] in its review called the film "average" and wrote of Malashri's performance that she plays the "cop role to its perfection". The screenplay and narration of the film was also praised. However, the reviewer felt that stunts and song sequences were out of place.[12] B. S. Srivani of Deccan Herald rated the film 2/5 and credited the film's cinematography and the acting performances, and criticized its music.[13]
