The film opened on 18 January 1957. Chakravarthi Thirumagal became a huge success at the box office, highest grosser of the year, and successfully ran for over 150 days in theatres. Film historian Randor Guy wrote "Chakravarthi Thirumagal remembered for the interesting storyline, good music, song and dance sequences and taut on-screen narration. A Song and dance sequence ‘Aaadavaanga annaathey' sung off-screen by Sirkazhi Govindarajan, Jikki and P. Leela, with words such as ‘gummaalu' was a hit. Sohanlal and Thangaraj choreographed the dances by Ragini, E. V. Saroja and G. Sakunthala."
