Planet Bollywood rated the movie a 7.5/10, saying that “the spirit was lost” inside the second half, and compared it to Cineyug’s original movie Arjun, which had a similar topic. The action scenes and background soundtrack, on the other hand, were commended by the critic. Writing for Bollywood Hungama, Taran Adarsh gave the movie and one a half stars from out of five, lauding the very first half while criticising the second; he praised the cinematography as well as the action sequence alignment this apart from the showings of Oberoi and Kulkarni but wrote off the movie script and implementation.
