A critic from Viggy wrote that "In a nutshell, is a mass entertainer with a difference with Upendra's touch".[3] Indiainfo wrote "This film is for everyone. It does not have the tag line " Budhivantharige Mathra'. Infact you need no intelligence to watch this movie. Two hours of entertainment and a total paisa vasool".[4]
