The movie Brahmana is given a rating of 3 out of 5 by the film critics. The film observed an average opening on the 1st day of opening. The movie does not have a great or new story to impress the audience. Rather the movie faced a few protests and blame of targeting a particular community. The movie has various weak points like the weak direction, slow pace and unnecessary involvement of the terrorists group. Brahmana failed to entertain the audience as on the first day. Friend Request released on the same day had pulled more crowd than Brahmana on day 1.
