Reception[edit]

The Indian Express compared the film's plot to Veedu: "Illam is unlike Veedu in many ways [..] it does not have anchoring in social factors [..] and is mainly interested in the melodramatic aspects of the plot".[4] Amala won the Best Actress Special Award at the 9th Cinema Express Awards.[5]
