Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

Times of India rated the film 1.5/5.[citation needed]

Renuka Vyavhare of TOI said that, "If you are planning to watch this film solely for Rajesh Khanna, don't". The film makes an unsuccessful attempt to make scene intense by playing loud music every time Rajesh Khanna appears on screen.[6] Johnson Thomas of FreePressJournal said that the film is a desi wannabe of the Hollywood film The Godfather and, the narrative is hapless, very amateurishly executed.[7] Jyothi Venkatesh of the website Starblockbuster.com reviewed the film as lacking novelty.[8] Rediff said that the Rajesh Khanna looks unwell in the movie and seems unable to deliver dialogues given to him. The website also speculate that the film was completed after Rajesh Khanna's death as there was found many repeated appearances of him and many dialogues of his shots delivered by some other person.[9]
