Silverscreen noted that "Thematically similar to Kaththi, this film will go down as another laudable attempt at taking on social corruption, and trying to empower the downtrodden". Behindwoods rated it 2.25 out of 5 and noted that "The film doesn't offer anything unique within this genre but when Gounder is the face of such political attacks and mild preaching, it can get enjoyable!" New Indian Express stated that "The film is a fairly delightful take on the avariciousness of humans, the unscrupulousness of corporates and politicians, and the gullibility of the downtrodden, who are easily taken for a ride by unscrupulous elements. 49-0 could definitely have done with some polish and finesse. But substance over form is far better than gloss and style over a very weak content". Times of India rated 2 out of 5 and wrote "In the end, 49-O ends up as ineffective as the rule it criticizes — you can admire the intention and you can really take it seriously".
