123telugu.com gave a review stating "If you liked ‘Ee Rojullo’, you will like ‘Bus Stop’. The film is an entertaining youth comedy with a nice message in the end. The good emotional quotient in the second half will strike a chord with parents as well as students. Some may find the vulgarity in the film a little uncomfortable, but hey, this is an A rated comedy. So you should know what you are going to watch." Oneindia Entertainment gave a review stating "Director Maruthi, with his perfect screenplay and direction, has succeeded in his attempt in what he exactly wanted to explain through this film. While watching the movie, the audiences feel that they are also one among them and identify one of the characters with them. Of course, those who have accepted the film Ee Rojullo would also accept Bus Stop, but the film should not be watched by parents and children together as there are many uneasy scenes in the film." Rediif.com gave a review stating "Bus Stop is an urban take on what love means to different peoplejust time-pass or a commitment or just fun. Whatever it is, the urban youth could connect with Bus Stop." telugu.way2movies.com gave a review stating "People who liked the Ee Rojullo movie will like it as the narration is quick and adult comedy is bulk but the film could have been made in a clean way reducing the sleazy stuff. It is Strictly for youngsters who likes Adult comedies."
