The Hindu wrote "despite a hackneyed script and clichéd plot twists, the film is entertaining because it maintains a light tone throughout. At no point does it become over-dramatic and that, one must add, is a saving grace!". BBthots wrote "with a ridiculously silly story and cheap comedy, all it does is erase any gains Satyaraj may have made with Ennammaa Kannu". Chennai Online wrote "the film turns out to be a damp squib, with a meandering screenplay, inept handling, time factor that goes hay wire, and comedy that tries out your patience".From this film actress Mumtaj became so popular after portraying her glamorous role in a full-length linear movie
