The film received negative reviews from critics. The Times of India gave the film 2 stars out of 5 and wrote, "It is a convoluted plot that just feels inane on paper but one that could pass off as a comedy of the absurd on screen. But, because of its uneven tone, the film comes across as something that is severely disjointed and unfocussed. The Hindu wrote, "there’s no end to the tiresome sequence of romance and break-ups in Yennamo Yedho. It has everything going wrong for it. A convoluted plot, unimpresive performances and unfunny comedy". Sify wrote "the plot is hackneyed, romance is half baked and lead pair is unimpressive", calling the film "a pale version of the original" and describing it as "heartbreakingly disappointing". Deccan Chronicle wrote, "Despite being the remake of Ala Modalaindi, which was a hit in Telugu, Yennamo Yedho fails to impress". Behindwoods.com gave 1.75 stars out of 5 and wrote, "Yennamo Yedho has very few gripping scenes and doesn’t make the connect with the viewer. Its pace is laborious and the romance that is portrayed is nothing new to the viewer. The so-called twists are also predictable and artificial. In spite of the refreshing lead pair, the movie leaves you weary".
The New Indian Express wrote, "The film may not be the best of romantic comedies. But it’s a fairly enjoyable watch". Indiaglitz stated, "A little bit of action, a lot of comedy - mostly situational and full of romance, Yennamo Yedho is a fairly clean entertainer and a lighthearted movie experience to chill out on, with friends and family". Oneindia.in called it "an enjoyable movie".
