Sangeetha Devi Dundoo of The Hindu wrote that the film is "An unlikely love story packs in a fair amount of humour in the rugged Rayalaseema terrain." She added that "Vishal Chandrasekhar’s music and Yuvaraj’s cinematography are apt for the film’s milieu. The film has its share of fine performances. Nani is a treat to watch."

Deccan Chronicle's Suresh Kaviryani wrote that "Nani once again proves that he is a good actor. He does comedy scenes with ease and one can say that he is now a bankable star. Mehreen, too, has done an excellent job as the female lead and doesn’t look like a debutante at all."

On Raghavpudi's direction, a reviewer Sify opined that "As writer and director, Hanu Raghavapudi has shown his mark once again in telling a story differently with rich visuals. He has acquired his distinct style and that is visible in this movie too."
