- Thiraipadam wrote:" It has the Saran stamp both in the positives like a fast-paced screenplay and a plot twist and the negatives like a weak climax but the overload of coincidences and contrivances is the movie's biggest problem".
- Hindu wrote:"The story meanders in rudderless fashion before suddenly waking up to an action-packed climax".
