S. Shivakumar of Mid-Day called it "the worst AVM presentation I have ever seen" and went on to write "With absolutely no plot, director Ram Narayan depends on his abundant talent in penning the now proverbial double meaning dialogues to stimulate the baser instincts of the filmmakers 'main food'".[4]
