Critical response[edit]

A critic from Bangalore Mirror wrote  "The film is not bad per se, but it brutally exposes the makers’ lack of creativity despite having a dazzling star cast.It's getting clear that most directors can't take Sandalwood forward".[2] A critic from News18 India wrote "All the veteran actors like Ramesh Bhat, Thulasi and Sudha Belawadi have aptly fitted into their respective roles. 'Mr. Duplicate' is no match for 'Minnale' but it is good for a one-time watch".[3] Sunayana Suresh from DNA wrote "Newcomer Sheetal shows promise and has a certain yesteryear heroine charm to her face. Mano Murthy’s music is melodious and reminds you of the retro Kannada songs of the 70s and 80s and the dialogues and cinematography are quite impressive".[4] A critic from The Times of India scored the film at 3.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "Prajwal is impressive with his mature acting, Diganth is simply superb, Sheetal plays her role very well, Ramesh Bhat and Devaraj are gracious. The music composer Mano Murthy has come up with some catchy tunes".[5]
