Critical recption[edit]

  • Thiraipadam wrote:" It has the Saran stamp both in the positives like a fast-paced screenplay and a plot twist and the negatives like a weak climax but the overload of coincidences and contrivances is the movie's biggest problem".[2]
  • Hindu wrote:"The story meanders in rudderless fashion before suddenly waking up to an action-packed climax".[3]
  • Sify wrote:"The most refreshing thing about Idaya Thirudan is that it is well packaged as a youth entertainer with the correct masala concoctions".[4]
