Critical reception[edit]

Sify wrote "The story of Joot is as stale as yesterday?s bread as the plot is clich?d and seen in umpteen mass films in the same genre. The first half when the hero comes to the city from a village and gets into a fight with local goons for no fault of his, reminds you of Dhool."[2] Balaji B wrote "Azhagamperumal too takes the masala route with Joot after Dum Dum Dum, his first movie. But one wishes he hadn't followed Lingusamy this closely. Joot is little more than a rehash of Run(with a little bit of Dhool thrown in) without the handling that made the original a first-class entertainer."[3]
