The movie received mixed reviews from critics
Sify wrote, "Enough endured. Instead of viewing this farce, stay at home and watch cartoon network!"
Behindwoods said, "Kundakka Mandakka is a movie for the front benchers and is a sure hit in the B and C theatres. Asokan, a debutant director, literally scares the masses with the presentation."
Indiaglitz stated, "Parthiban as usual comes up with tricks, which always ends up Vadivelu in trouble, and is pretty sharp in his repartee and witticisms. He has a way with words and it comes naturally to him. Vadivelu provides relief at many places in the movie while Lakshmi Rai oozes glamour all through. Director Ashokan shows some sparkle in handling earthy humor. Though the essential idea is old, the film does evoke plenty of laughs."
