Reception[edit]

Malini Mannath said, "Abhinay gets to play the hero here, and dances, romances and fights without any fuss. The heroines are uncannily alike in appearance, dressing and performance. Pale-faced and anaemic looking, their sole contribution to the film is their willingness to dare and bare" and added, "The script is not very focused, the director not very clear as to what he wants to tell".[6] Reviewer Balaji Balasubramaniam wrote, "Thulluvadho Ilamai's success leads to movies like Jjunction (looks like the director needs a lesson in English spellings too apart from film-making!) which bank solely on glamour and vulgarity to try and recover the obviously low investment".[7]
