  •  Bangalore Mirror -S Shyam Prasad Rating-4
The commercial success of Dandupalya has spawned a series of films on serial killers and rapists in Sandalwood. It's evident that Khatarnak is based on the life of Umesh Reddy, an alleged serial killer. Though there is a disclaimer that the film is a fictitious account, it is only the Censor Board's muting of place

  •  Times of India -GS Kumar Rating-4
The movie is the life story of psychopath Umesh who terrorized women all over Karnataka a few years ago. Though director Malavalli Saikrishna has brilliantly presented each of his criminal acts with a firm grip over script and narration, the message he is sending to the youth through this movie

  •  Deccan Herald -BS Srivani Rating-2
This version of Reddy’s life plays out on predictable lines of how surroundings mould a man’s character. Khatarnaak even goes to the extent of putting across, rather crudely, the view that the more a mother encourages her offsprings’ sins, the heavier will be the price to pay.

  •  Rediff -Srikanth Srinivasa Rating-5
Dialogue writer and lyricist Malavalli Sai Krishna has directed a film for the first time with Khatarnaak.Umesh (Ravi Kale) is a budding criminal who enjoys the ill-gotten wealth that his mother encourages him to bring home. What started as a lark soon becomes a habit. Umesh grows up to be a serial killer

  •  One India -Sandesh MS Rating-6
The movie makers of Kannada film industry have taken an initiation to create awareness among the people by making the films, which are based on real life incidents. After Veerappan AttahasaKhatarnak is another biopic of the most wanted criminal, a psychopath and serial killer.
