ReceptionEdit

The movie opened to negative reviews. Haricharan Pudupeddi of DNA India gave a review stating "Vennela ​1 12 is loathsome with the senseless 'bathroom humour' that runs throughout the film. Vennela ​1 12 is one of the worst comedy films of recent times."[1] IBN Live stated "After watching the trailers, most of us did not expect anything more from Vennela ​1 12 than low brow comedy. What came as a surprise was that the film did not pack a sensible story that might have made us sit through the haranguing second half."[2] The Times Of India gave a review stating "The performances vary from loony to queer. It would be unfair to call it acting. What the characters just indulge in is absolute tom-foolery of degenerated variety. Chaitanya has a presence, but really has nothing much to do as does Monal. Let's just say, the other departments are in tune with the rest of the film."[3] The Hindu gave a review stating "From the Kya Kool Hai Hum clan of film-making, it tries to be like American Pie, but fails miserably. It's just a mindless excuse for a film, filling up the 70 mm. The film is not for those looking for cinema, but for those with raging hormones, looking for a cheap laugh."[4] 123telugu.com gave a review stating "If you are a fan of the original Vennela and go in for this movie expecting something similar, you will be sorely disappointed. I was a fan of Vennela Kishore the actor. But I am not going to be a fan of Vennela Kishore the director."[5] Way2movies gave a review stating "Except for few comedy parts, Vennela ​1 12 has nothing to offer."[6]
