Critical reception[edit]

The Hindu wrote "We expect this remarkably bland love story to turn into a thriller. But no such luck."[5] Deccan chronicle wrote "The problem with the script is an ordinary story with underdeveloped characters. The director could have infused more thrilling elements to hold the tension. The movie had all the potential to become an engaging thriller had the director concentrated more on a coherent screenplay with solid writing."[6]
