Hegde's performance playing the love interest of Shetty's character won praise for Hegde; a reviewer for The Times of India stated that "Samyuktha Hegde, as the bubbly Aarya, has a tough act to follow given the peppy first half and impresses by holding her own in crucial scenes", while The New Indian Express's reviewer felt that Hegde "outshone in the film along with the main character".
