The Hindustan Times review of the film said it has “emotionally weak action”. An excerpt read: “Philomin Raj (film editor) is focused on pace. He cuts the scenes rather tight, we don’t linger to see the aftermath of the extraordinary violence, deaths and maiming of hundreds, that perhaps Lokesh doesn’t want us to process it either. It is here that Leo fails in giving us the emotional core to connect with Leo Das, his conflict and his journey. Therefore, while the craftiness may be bloody sweet, the writing feels rather bitter.”
