Release and reception[edit]

Aalappirandhavan was released on 10 April 1987.[2] The Indian Express said, "With an offbeat storyline that anyhow paves the way only for bloody violence — so common this line of approach has become that even a child would refuse to be impressed — college professor turned filmmaker A. S. Pragasam deserves a pat for attempting to develop on a fresh idea, but his jerky and inane narrative falls between the two stolls of reality and fantasy and sinks in the morass of sheer incapacity."[3]
