Critical response[edit]

B. S. Srivani Deccan Herald wrote "Prem seems to enjoy his role while Kruti Kharbanda fills the eyes and heart. Coming close on the heels of Drama, Prem Adda passes by like a gust of wind full of dust".[3] A critic from Bangalore Mirror wrote  "The story has enough stuff to keep the audience engaged. Be warned of the violence that has earned it an ‘A’ certificate. The music by Harikrishna and the cinematography by Arun Prasad are top class. We must add, it is no match for the original".[4] A critic from DNA wrote "Well, just that Prem Adda does the very thing that Subramaniapuram stays away from... making criminals look like heroes. The makers would have done better to retain the flavour and intention of the original. So watch it for the performance of the lead pair if you must".[5] A critic from The Times of India scored the film at 2.5 out of 5 stars and says "While Prem shows some improvement in acting over his first movie Preethi Yeke Bhoomi Melide, it’s better he wears a director’s hat. Muralikrishna impresses. Kriti Kharbanda could have done much better. Lakshmi, a TV artiste, has done a good job as our hero’s aunt. Music by V Harikrishna has a couple of good numbers".[6] Srikanth Srinivasa from scored the film at 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "Debutant Arun D Prasad's cinematography is quite good; he is a good find. Mavalli Sai Krishna's dialogues are also quite apt. Mass Maada has shot the action sequences well although they are a bit gory. Prem Adda will entertain the masses who look for a rustic feel in films".[7] A critic from India TV wrote " "Prem Adda" is watchable for its huge presentation but the violence in the film may not be liked by the family audience".[8] A Sharadhaa from The New Indian Express wrote "Cinematographer Arund D Prasad has captured the village scenes very well. Harikrishna has once again won many hearts with his melodious and peppy numbers. Verdict: The film may not be that pleasant as the love flick eventually turns into a movie with a lot of bloodshed".[9]
