The film opened on 17 February 2017 to coincide with the Valentines Day weekend. The Times of India wrote "it’s always a pleasant surprise when a small film manages to punch above its weight", adding that "this refreshing little romance does this in an impressive manner, even while ticking all the genre indispensables". Likewise, a reviewer from the Deccan Chronicle wrote "though Kadhal Kan Kattuthe is the usual romance, breakup, reunion story, what makes it tick is its lively presentation combined with well-written dialogues and appreciable performances from a new set of actors", concluding that overall it was "a cool and breezy film that is worth a watch". Sify.com stated "it is watchable for the honest attempt but the execution could've been much better" adding "the biggest strength and minus of Kadhal Kan Kattuthe’s is its casting". The reviewer added that "despite the usual triangular love story and sulk between the lead pair, the newcomers provide a fresh feel but after a point of time, we get tired due to their raw performances while the plodding romance and long drawn out climax in the second half test our patience". The film took a low profile opening, but eventually out ran bigger profile films Ennodu Vilayadu and Pagadi Aattam at the Chennai box office.
