Release and reception[edit]

The film opened in September 2000 to mixed reviews, with a critic noting that the film fails due to the miscasting of the lead actor.[4] A reviewer from The Hindu noted "melodious music, enchanting visuals, good dialogues, all these and other plus points offset the mediocre screenplay of Shenbagam Movies Ilayavan".[5] A critic from Sify wrote that "Debutant Sathyan, nephew and look-alike of actor Sathyaraj with an ungainly gait and irritatingly squeaky voice is not hero stuff. Director T.Babu has chosen the wrong vehicle to make his debut. Kausalya either goes around with a plastic grin plastered on her face or spits fire and brimstone and shrieks like a banshie. Some characters! Some story!! And some film!!!"[6]
