The Times of India rated the movie 2.5/5 stars and although the movie was appreciated for being painstakingly crafted; it was criticized for being too dour and clinical and bereft of humour, pace and drama.
Subhash K Jha too rated the movie 2.5/5 stars and summed up his review as "If there are no highs in the narration, there are no plunging lows either" and singled out Rajit Kapur’s acting as the one stand-out performance.
