Sify wrote, "Action King Arjun’s maiden directorial Vedham is sleep inducing. Arjun should stick to patriotism, guns and scantly clad girls dancing in ribaldry. But here he wants to experiment with the idea – “To be in love for ever” but ends up making an insufferable film that leaves you with a migraine'.[2] The Hindu wrote, "Generally it is patriotism that is the underlying theme of Arjun's films. But in Vedham he deviates much, to talk about the sanctity of the institution of marriage and glorify the familial unit. The message is loud and clear - so clear that it turns didactic".[3] The film did not well in box office.[4]
