Reception[edit]

Puthiya Theerangal received mixed reviews upon release with most critics complaining that it is a typical Sathyan Anthikad film with nothing new to offer. Sify.com gives the verdict "Disappointing" and says, "Puthiya Theerangal has nothing new about it and ends up as a meek affair. With clichéd situations and half-baked characters, the film is a lazy effort from one of Kerala’s most popular directors ever."[4] Paresh C Palicha of Rediff.com says Puthiya Theerangal has some good performances but in the end it leaves us with mixed feelings. He rated the film 2/5 stars.[5] Oneindia.in was somewhat impressed with the film. In a review which rates the film 3/5 stars, its critic comments that the film "spells the same 'Sathyan Anthikkad' magic".[6] it.flopped
