Review site[9] mentioned that "Naa Bangaaru Talli is a film straight from the heart. It opens your eyes and shows the harsh realities of life quite convincingly. Anjali Patil’s performance and some thrilling moments stand out. All those who want to see films with a message and sensibility need to definitely give this film a shot." Since this is a serious issue based film, the site didn't rate the movie in a commercial format. A reviewer at HOURDOSE [10] mentioned "Overall ‘Naa Bangaaru Talli’ is one of the very few Telugu films that touched a delicate point in the recent times and yet made sure that it’s an interesting watch to the theatrical audiences. You can surely give it a shot if you are interested in some meaningful movies which make some sense."
