Rediff wrote that "It is quite obvious that the director has not updated himself on how films are made today, in 2005. This film may have worked if it were made in the early 1960s". Balaji B of Thiraipadam wrote "It is neither a political satire nor, in spite of having the heroine's name as its title, a socially relevant film. His [Karunaidhi] dialogues do shine at some places but for the most part, are made irrelevannt by the horrid screenplay and bad character development." Indiaglitz wrote "The film is peppered with messages on nationalism, caste and communal harmony. But it lacks the spellbinding effect of certain war films."
