ReceptionEdit

Malathi Rangarajan of The Hindu in her review stated "The story offers nothing new. Tales of unrequited love and mistaken identity have been seen on screen for years now. (The excellently enacted Savithri starrer of yore, "Kathirundha Kangal", and K. Balachander's "Thamarai Nenjam", to name a couple) It is the treatment that makes the difference in "Punnagai Poovae"."[2]
