Critical receptionEdit

The film met with mixed reviews from the critics all over. gave the film 2 stars out of 5 saying, "The biggest flaw in the film is the climax. It looks as if the director who is also the story writer, does not know anything about networking sites like Facebook. So the way the climax unfolds is utterly laughable". Further it declares that, "On the whole, it looks like Ganesh's performance is the only saving grace of 'Munjaane'. Otherwise it is another average fare".[1] gave the movie a positive 6.5 stars out of 10 saying, "Yet another studious approach without missing the family elements reputed director S Narayan gives a 'Pleasant Surprise' in 'Munjane'".[3]
