Angadi performed well at the box office. It was also noted for Jayan's acting. His dialogue "We are not beggars ..." became a catchphrase.[5]

The songs from the film also made it big for their melodious renditions. With the music composed by Shayam, the film's duet, "Kannum Kannum Thammil Thammil", sung by K. J. Yesudas and S. Janaki and "Paavada Venam", sung by K. J Yesudas were instant hits. The lyrics by Bichu Thirumala was also very memorable.[5]
