Nevertheless, he must take care of his make-up". Whilst actresses Deepu as Ramya is "average" but manages to get more frames than the heroine. Karthika as Jennifer is said to "look good but has nothing much to do but stand beside the hero". Whilst in regard to the production it cites that Kumaran, who multi-tasks — writing the story, screenplay, dialogue, acting, directing and producing — "seems to lose concentration here and there".[5]
