Her performance was considered "top notch", "the actress shining in this bossy role, unwavering in dialect and determination".

And Deccan Chronicle summed it up in one line saying, "Radhika Madan is truly Pataakha."
With the buzz surrounding the debutante, industry sources reveal that several filmmakers are already in talks with the actress. All eyes are now on Radhika Madan as she is also rumoured to have a big announcement soon.
