Production[edit]

Ma Ka Pa Anand shot for the film simultaneously alongside his commitments for Panjumittai, Atti and Deepavali Thuppakki.[1] The film was predominantly shot in Pollachi and was completed by September 2015.[2] Songs were also shot in Kutralam and Thenkasi.[3] The lead pair refused to shoot a kissing scene in the film, and stated that the director failed to disclose the shot in the original narration of the script.[4][5]

Reception[edit]

Times of India wrote "Navarasa Thilagam is a film that thinks of itself as a comedy while not making an effort to be one. The writing is quite bland (there is zero effort in building up the central romantic track) and the narrative predictable (we even get a hapless 'foreign mapillai'), and it is left to the cast to shore up the film."[6] Indiaglitz wrote "Navarasa Thilagam is a 'Kalavani' kind of film which is not as entertaining but a watchable film that engages the viewer in most parts."[7] New Indian Express wrote "The screenplay is more verbal in its take. The script may have seemed good on paper, but on the screen it falls flat. If only it had some punch and was crafted more interestingly [..] Navarasa Thilagam is, at most, a promising effort from a debutant maker."[8] Sify wrote "Overall, Navarasa Thilagam is a damp squib and the joke is only on us!."[9]
