The Indian Express wrote, "Director Suresh Krishna's takings are slick and sophisticated. He has used his cinematographer Prakash to good effect. The visuals are crisp and elegant, the locations lush and inviting. But that's all there is to the film, the flashiness."[4] New Strait Times wrote "Director Suresh Krishna should have concentrated more on building up the story instead of just the stunts".[5]
