Critical reception[edit]

Deepthi Sreenivasan for deccanchronicle.com rated the film 2.5 out of 5 and commented, "The movie begins to take a turn when local goons eye Sadhu's wife which ends in a public brawl. The last time Malayalis had a similar taste of Kochi's cultural treasure trove was in the Dileep starrer Gramophone. Debutant Saheer Ali obviously had too much information on his hands and was trying to include as many things as he can with a love story running parallel to it. His effort was earnest but the film could have done without so much detailing. Adil Ibrahim shines as Sadhu and Pearle compliments perfectly".[9] cinemadaddy.com stated, "The way the plot is presented the story and the elements like love, music, agony and the fight for survival are mixed up and it was just beautiful and it was like watching a part of the history of Kochi unfolding before our eyes. The selection of events portrayed in the movie also deserves kudos and the director was in control over the proceedings right from the start. Kappiri Thuruthu keeps a tight leash throughout and leaves a strong impression in the mind".[10]
