Reviews[edit]

TSV Hari of Rediff.com described the film as "very ordinary fare," adding that "Sakthi certainly deserved better."[5] M Bharat Kumar of News Today called it a "mediocre offering" with "predictable sequences," noting that "the son seems to have delivered the goods well, while the father has failed as a director."[6] However, IndiaGlitz described it as a "feel-good youthful entertainer" with an "intelligent screenplay and pacy narration" that is "sure to appease film-buffs."[7]
