118 is an intriguing, different and nearly engaging thriller with lucid dreaming concept as the backdrop. First half is pretty good, second half has its own reservations. Audience who have an appetite for a different film might give it a try.</p>
Great Andhra (Rating: 3/5)
Times Of India (Rating: 3.5/5)
go watch this one for the edgy narrative. But be warned; do not try to dig too deep into it, for you might just miss out on a fine thriller that tries to deliver more than the usual heroics. Especially go watch this one for Nivetha Thomas and Kalyan Ram, you will not regret it.

In the end, 118 has a decent beginning and ending. It is everything that happens in between where there is a problem. Still, it isn’t too problematic but instead makes the whole thing passable affair as there is a dilution of narrative due to needless raciness.</p>

On the whole, 118 is a simple and neat thriller which has been made with no unnecessary deviations. It has decent moments in both the halves and the suspense is carried out neatly. But the flashback in the second half slows down things a bit and is predictable.
