The Times of India rated the film 2.5 out of 5 and wrote, "Edakkad Battalion 06 comes as a widely stretched out tribute to the brave martyrs of the land. The gravity and effect of martyrdom plays out in the last 10 minutes of the movie, which is by far the only part that manages to incite an emotion." [1] Sify gave 2.5 and wrote, "With an average script, the story meanders along without a definite direction for most parts here. Perhaps the whole effort was to take it to the climax where there is a wafer thin plot." [11]

The New Indian Express gave 2 out of 5 and wrote, "barring two notably tense moments in the first half—a daring rescue operation (involving fire) and a fight scene (involving water)—Edakkad Battalion fails to make us feel anything in other segments." [12]
