ReceptionEdit

The Times of India gave the film a 2 out of 5 stars stating that "The only takeaway is the decent performance by Sri Priyanka, who managed to convey the harrowing experience women face during such situations".[8] The Deccan Chronicle gave the film two and a half out of five stars and wrote how "The writing could have been better and the length of the movie also plays spoilsport. Nevertheless, MMA is a well-intentioned film with a message. These small glitches can be overlooked".[9]
