Scenes involving Vijay vasanth & Srushti dange were shot in this schedule. Combination scenes of Saranya Ponvannan and Radharavi were canned in this schedule. The schedule lasted for 20 days. Major chunk of the movie was shot in this schedule.

Achamindri opened to mostly positive reviews from critics.
- Sify Movies gave an Above Average verdict and stated, Achamindri is an above average commercial entertainer highlighting the irregularities in our educational system.
- Indiaglitz in its review stated Achamindri can be watched for its message about Education system conveyed with the right impact, the suspenseful narration that keeps us guessing and a genuine twist.
- The Times of India gave 3 out of 5 stars. TOI stated that The climax is built chiefly on the strength of the dialogues, and G Radhakrishnan’s lines, though they make arguments that we have heard before (like the government running liquor shops instead of schools), are both hard-hitting and crowd-pleasing that we cannot help but cheer.

- Dinamalar in its review stated that Achamindri is a must watch for Students, parents and Educational Institutions.
