Vinay Lokesh of The Times of India gave 3/5 stars and wrote “Wrestling remains the core of Garadi, but a predictable, lackluster storyline and linear pattern of storytelling nullifies its impact. If you are a die hard fan of wrestling, this movie will certainly impress you.” Sujay B. M. of Deccan Herald gave 3/5 stars ans wrote “Garadi is an important film on a traditional sport in the days of gym and drugs. Watch it to relive the past but don’t expect the book to be as grand as the cover.”
A. Sharadhaa of The New Indian Express gave 3/5 stars and wrote “Garadi makes for a wholesome film blending action, romance, and comedy, along with the sport of wrestling. Whether this film gives a boost to Soorya’s career as an actor is a question that remains to be answered. And the audience is left to wonder if Yogaraj Bhat will stick to his signature romantic drama.? Time shall answer.” Swaroop Kodur of OTTplay gave 2/5 stars and wrote “Garadi, as already pointed out, may not deliver on the expectations that you carry for a Yogaraj Bhat film but even otherwise, the film feels riddled with problems. You may want to give it a try to get a taste of how traditional wrestling functions in the heartland of Karnataka but the expectations are to be set quite low.”
Shuklaji of The News Minute wrote “Garadi, unfortunately, can be best described as an outdated film that has very little to offer, despite boasting a unique premise. One emerges from the theatre wishing to see Yogaraj Bhat return to his old ways but not without the creative risks he is required to take, especially when Kannada cinema is showing signs of a great bloom.” Vivek M. V. of The Hindu wrote “Director Yogaraj Bhat’s ‘Garadi,’ starring Yashas Soorya in the lead, is a generic film that does very little to make us care for a dying sport.”
