Reception edit

Hemanth Kumar of Firstpost praised the performances of Aryan Rajesh and Pavani Gangireddy but termed it a convoluted web-series and said it would have been better as a film, as the director's initial intention. He criticised the narrative and said that the performances in a few scenes were amateurish, but it worked well in its emotional scenes.[3]
