Critical reception[edit]

Sify wrote:"Sarath and director Suresh has kept the theme of politics as family business, and added a lot of heroism to the central character and made him a one-man fighting machine".[2] Kollywood Today wrote:"As a whole, taking the whole film into consideration, Nam Naadu is a film for a political cause and also a commercial film that can be watched to kill the time and not more than that".[3]
