  •  Times of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-3
The film attempts to capture the life, ideals and beliefs of the muchrevered Swami Vivekananda. His take on caste, religion, God, family,marriage, social work and well-being of his country and people forms thestory. His devotion for Swami Ramakrishna is also an integral part of thefilm.

  •  Mid-Day -Shakti Shetty Rating-2
The first unwritten rule of a biopic is to cast someone who resembles the subject. Something this film scores high on as the protagonist bears an uncanny resemblance to the legendary philosopher he portrays. Apart from that, everything else is an utter downhill.
