Critical ReceptionEdit

The Times of India newspaper gave 2.5 out of 5 stars stating "Mane Maratakkide can be a good watch for those that like their frights light, with some laughs and predictable humour thrown in for good measure."[13]

The New Indian Express newspaper gave 3.5 out of 5 stars stating "Sruthi Hariharan, even though has very less screen space, plays a very different role. Also seen with her is Shivaram, Giri, and Sumitra, who take the story forward. A special appearance by Karunya Ram in a song brings in the glam quotient. Cinematography by Suresh Babu comes handy as most of the scenes are shot indoors. The film has limited songs and Abhimanyu Roy's focus was more on the background score, and he has done a good job. If you are looking for some laughter, this film has an ample of it, in fact, four times more."[14]
