Critical reception[edit]

Behindwoods wrote "Sadhu Miranda is the director’s attempt at mixing a cocktail of comedy and suspense. His intelligence in scriptwriting oozes out of every frame, as does his prowess in executing a well-crafted script."[4] Sify wrote "What works for Siddique is that the humour blends to a certain extent with the thriller plot. What boomerangs is it all looks too familiar. If you are just looking for some corny laughs, then Sadhu Mirindal is worth a look".[2] Rediff wrote "At first look, you'll have to admit that the Tamil film Saadhu Miranda... (If the Meek are angered) doesn't look very promising, with its hero looking a little too naive, and its heroine too made-up, not to mention a horde of cheesy villains. But Alka Film Corporation's venture, directed by Siddique, soon makes you sit up and take notice."[5]
