Oneindia Review: After Kandareega, Ram had established himself as an energetic hero and with lots of promise Endukante Premanta was developed. But with slow narrative style and boring moments, this film may not match up to his earlier hit. If only the youngsters enjoy the slow pace then it is sure to be another hit for Ram and Karunakaran.
Rediff Review: Endukante Premanta is more like the dream Tamanna has in the film a sweet fantasy. There's nothing to look forward to in the film barring the performance of Ram and Tamanna.
Times of India Review: The biggest stumbling blocks are the no-existent-romance and the below par music. The filmmaker tried to pack in a little too much into the narrative, which unfolds in a thrill-a-minute-fashion. That proves to be its undoing and ends up looking a little too tacky, the breathtaking visuals not withstanding. Overall, a very underwhelming experience that only comes off in bits and pieces.
Deccan Herald Review: Except for Andrew's awe-inspiring cinematography that captures Paris and its scenic surroundings in their resplendent hues, nothing impresses in Endukante. It drags while telling a mundane, mushy tale peppered with action and comedy. If only Endukante was as energetic as it bills and markets its leading star to be!
India Glitz Review: Whatever we had thought about Endukante Premanta is turned upside down when we watch a romance-fiction unfold in front of our eyes. Karunakaran dares to be out-of-the-box this time, and his film borders on the surreal. He neither falls into the trap of Tamil-style story-telling nor makes it seem dreamlike; this is its qualification as well as disqualification. The surreal but beautiful world of Tamanna and Ram is juxtaposed with a universe of comedy scenes and tinsel songs; this is the film's biggest strength but also its greatest undoing. The interval twist jolts you and brings the first 10 minutes of the film to your mind.
Super Good Movies: Endukante Premanta lacks the soul and feel that are much needed for this type of films. Except for few funny sequences, the film offers nothing to any section of audience. The concept too isn't universally acceptable.
