The Indian Express stated, "[T]he unimaginative, half-baked and immature treatment of the story often invites derision." About the cast performances, the reviewer said, "Murali, who is more accustomed to action films does not seem to fit into the role [of] the inwardly harried student ... Newface Hira, who has little to do except look serenely at everything around her, is well cast." The reviewer added that Chinni Jayanth was "vibrant as the comedian".
