Sunayana Suresh shared her review, " The expectations have been enormous. Does the team deliver? Yes, they do. The film has a fast-paced first half, but the second half and the climax sets up the right premise for the second part of the film."
Priyanka Sundar shared, "The film is made on a grand scale and that translates onto the screen. The background score for the film is promising, and actors have done a good job. However, the takeaway from the film is the editing. "
Faridoon Shahryar took to his twitter handle, "It's a Kannada film that's dubbed in Hindi but the Hindi dialogues r whistle worthy. They remind you of vintage Salim Javed penning for Amitabh Bachchan at his peak. The mother-son relationship has been showcased beautifully...a typical 70s staple but still works effectively.
