Sachin tweetz: Star hero son he is. This was unexpected. This Nagashekar is too much overrated. Chetan Kumar mass director would have been apt for Abhi debut. Weak 1st half, terrible 2nd half. Movie looked like Appu's Ninnindale. Totally misfire. Hope for better relaunch. #Amar

Priyanka: #Amar:  A dull romantic drama that made with unwarranted meandering screenplay to just make it look like a pukka commercial entertainer. Nagshekhar cannot afford to make such mistakes .... he seems to have lost touch .need to find a way to make a comeback..this one is a gone case
