Release and reception
Kavari Maan was released on 6 April 1979. Though fans were unwilling to accept Ganesan portraying a wife killer, the film emerged a commercial success. Kaushikan of Kalki criticised the story but praised Muthuraman's direction, adding that the deer in the film's title was not leaping, but roaring.
