Critical reception

The film opened to positive reviews from critics. Times of India wrote "Go watch Srinivasa Kalyana for some trademark timepass entertainment, with a good dose of naughty jokes to keep you chuckling." [1] Bangalore Mirror wrote "A jolly ride for the youth, Srinivasa Kalyana is a light-hearted comedy that chronicles the love affairs of an individual who seems to be forever on the losing side. The film has been pieced together from a bunch of incidents and jokes and connected to form a story. But it is seamlessly done and the film has a lively narrative." [4] Indiaglitz wrote "The film looks visually good, dialogues are funny, technically new attempts are seen and in 128 minutes of the film ‘Srinivasa Kalyana’ director cum hero of the film MG Srinivas has churned out his best. Srinivasa Kalyana is a film for all ages because it takes you back to earlier days and gives a good feel at the end." [2]

The movie was released and sustained for two weeks in USA and Australia(Melbourne and Sydney) after a critical and commercial success in India. Another element that contributed to the success of this movie was its music by Midhun and Raghu.
