Release and receptionEdit

Sify gave the movie a negative review adding "Jawan of Vellimala is a messy tale that can surprise you with its hollowness. An amateurish effort at best, this film is unintentionally funny at times and lacks much fizz." The noted reviewer of Sify Moviebuzz making it clear that the movie collapsed in all aspects and establishes his arguments with several examples, giving the verdict as "below average" and moreover a very amateurish effort at its best.[6]

Rediff.com gave the movie a negative rating of 2 out of 5 stars. Rediff.com critic Paresh C. Palicha furnishes the review heading as "Nothing new in Jawan of Vellimala" and added "At the end, Jawan of Vellimala, which held so much promise in the beginning, just fizzles out."[7]

The Times of India gave the movie a negative rating of 2 out of 5 stars stating "Finally, when it happens, what is intended to be a glorious end, looks plainly dramatic and even a blessed actor like Mammootty fails to shoulder the burden" and concludes with a note "Jawan of Vellimala lacks appeal not because it is predictable, but because of the shocking manner in which it ruins what could have been a promising plot."[8]

indiaglitz gave the movie a rating of 6/10 adding "The execution of 'Jawan of Vellimala' certainly ruins the possibilities of a great movie from a promising plot. But the movie will be fine for a onetime watch, if you don't go with bigger expectations."[9]
