Critical receptionEdit

Indiaglitz wrote:"'Raatinam' is a movie that is entertaining and is an honest attempt".[3] Behindwoods wrote:"Raattinam will stay in the minds of those who had struggled to make their love successful and it is not going to leave those who had failed to make their love successful".[4] The Hindu wrote "R aattinam is a film that succeeds in surprising you on more occasions than just one — the biggest surprise coming right at the end, in the form of the climax. To be fair to director K. S. Thangasamy, his story may appear clichéd, but the message he communicates through his film is relatively fresh and one that makes sense."[5]
