The film released across the globe in not just Kannada, but also in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi simultaneously.
In her review, The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta wrote, “You admire the striking cinematography, and the brown and sepia colours which suffuse the screen. But there’s really nothing more. Beat, punch, slap. Dialogue. Rinse, repeat. Yash looks capable while slashing and punching, and it helps that he has barely anything to say.”
The Prashant Neel directorial is showing a steady upward trend on the weekend and the Christmas holiday will also be crucial for its business as it might help it further soar commercially.
