The Hindu wrote that "It is obvious that Vikadakavi, made on a moderate budget, banks heavily on characterisation, dialogue and screenplay to make an impression. Krishnan, who has handled these departments, doesn't disappoint".[7] The New Indian Express wrote that "Vikadakavi has no big names to boast of, but certainly exceeds the expectations from a debutant".[8] Dinamalar praised the performances of the lead cast and criticized the background score and cinematography.[9] Kungamum praised the story.[10]
