The film received generally average to poor reviews. Audience and critics found the film's execution largely ineffective for a war film with caricature characters and extremely long runtime. Ronak Kotecha of The Times of India gave it 3/5 stars calling it a long-drawn war-drama that picks up only during the final moments.
