Times of India wrote "It is well presented but the film still falls short of expectations. In an era of short texts and fast communication, it is a bit out of synch." Behindwoods wrote "Although it largely sticks to the plot of its predecessor and remains loyal to the original, the movie falters to adapt itself to the current state of affairs. After all, in today’s world of speed dating, a dying heroine who hooks up the hero with another girl hardly makes for good viewing."
