His dialogue delivery has improved bounds compared to his earlier films. Dhiya, for a change, plays a de-glamorized role, while Thejashri playing a Bollywood heroine, seems to have mimed several Hindi actresses well, it is however and Ramesh Khanna, who are impressive. They give right emotions and succeed in not just evoking humor but emotions at many places."
