Critical receptionEdit

Times of India wrote "Adhyaksha in America is a script that is tailor-made for Sharan fans. This remake of the Malayalam film Two Countries sticks to the original narrative, while it also has the elements that a Kannada comedy lover would want. The film has more than its share of laughs, and it is picturised well with a good cast too".[15]
