K. P. S. of Kalki praised Ilaiyaraaja's background score and found Sarathkumar's fights and his duet with Vijayshanthi as funnier and concluded the reality is that Pokhran, which did not help Vajpayee, is not going to help Selvamani.[4] K. N. Vijiyan of New Straits Times said the film "should appeal to all those who like plenty of action and Sarath Kumar fans".[5] D. S. Ramanujam of The Hindu wrote, "Sarath Kumar is hampered by inadequate support from the screenplay and dialogue".[6] Fullhyd.com gave the film a negative review, criticising Selvamani's direction, the cinematography, editing and Ilaiyaraaja's music.[7]
