The Times of India Rating: 3

It is Vinayan's finest film and a heartfelt tribute to the artiste who was most definitely a compatriot to every Chalakkudikkaran.

Manoramaonline verdict:

The movie is Vinayan's emotional attempt to reintroduce his late companion on silver-screen. The debutante hero handled the humble beginnings of Mani, his rise as a mimicry artiste and life as a superstar with gentleness and accuracy.
