The reviewer for the Deccan Chronicle judged the film "undercooked", failing to balance the intensity—such as the two warring old men, whose performances he judged the best part of it—with the "charming innocence of the romance".[3] The reviewer for the Times of India found the plot trite and the film "content to coast on feel good moments and melodrama bordering on implausibility".[2]
