"Running for just 2 hours, the biggest plus of Aadama Jeichomada is the director's strength to fill the movie with unintelligence - be it the dialogues, the characters or even the situations - without which the movie would have failed big time. However, one has to admit that he could have totally avoided the speed breaking and tiring duet songs!," according to Behindwoods Review Board.

"The screenplay is very good and Mirchi Shiva's dialogues need a special mention. The quirky oneliners are rib-tickling and the situational humour is excellent. Shiva's voice-over for the narration is an added bonus. Sean Roldan's music is pleasant and the way the songs have been picturised are also funny," according to Galatta.
Verdict: Worth Watching Once
