Reception[edit]

S. Chidambaram of The Indian Express wrote "Debutant director Shridev, who has also penned the story, screenplay and dialogue, is able to keep your interest intact till the interval through a suspense [..] So you feel bored when the second part drags on" and called Ilayaraja's music "redeeming feature of this movie".[3]
