ReceptionEdit

B. Anuradha of Rediff.com called the film a "huge disappointment" and added "Gopal [..] is fascinated with a formula of attractively picturised songs, big action scenes, punchlines and comedy, but fails to pick the right plot."[1]

Sify gave the film 3/5 and wrote "Narasimhudu is one of those insufferable movies, that is devoid of a basic story and there is nothing new in style or presentation."[4] Idlebrain.com's Jeevi rated the film 2.5/5 and wrote "Movie starts off in an interesting style with a good introduction of the hero. But this graph slides down as the movie progress."[2]
