Gulu Gulu: Review

The film received a mediocre response from critics and the audience. While the one-liners made the audience laugh, the premise as such fell flat. Some performances in the film were good to entertain the audience and keep the film engaging. Despite some good elements, reviewers mentioned that the director Rathna Kumar missed out on making this a laugh riot. Flaws were noted in writing and direction; however, with a decent first half, one can sail through the film partly.
