Reception[edit]

S. Shiva Kumar of Mid Day wrote, "Karthik's sensitive performance and Ilayaraja's soothing music save the film from being a total washout. Gigi makes a very unsure debut and looks uncomfortable throughout."[8]

Legacy[edit]

The songs "Neethane Enthan Pon Vasantham" inspired the titles of a 2012 film (Neethaane En Ponvasantham) and a 2020 TV series, while "Panivizhum Malarvanam" inspired the name of a 2014 film.[9][10]
