Sudhir Srinivasan of The Hindu criticized the film stating “It is perhaps the most bizarre film I’ve seen in a long time”. Now Running rated the film 2 out of 5 and wrote “Athibar is neither a badly written film nor a neatly narrated drama. It has few moments here and there.” The Times of India rated 0.5 out of 5 and wrote “Adhibar is an exercise in mediocrity [..] We are told that the story is based on a real-life incident that happened in Sri Lanka, but there is so much randomness in the movie that we start wondering if real life can be this random. Characters behave in the most implausible manner and take instant decisions that no sane person in real life might take”. Silverscreen stated “Adhibar tests your patience right from the beginning”. The New Indian Express wrote, “Neither exciting nor refreshing, Adhibar is a dreary, mediocre fare”.
