However, she is killed in a fracas involving a gangster where she was hit and kicked brutally. Chinna saw this but the gangster told him that he will get killed if he tells anyone what he saw. Meanwhile, the hunchback Surya comes across an orphaned poor blind girl, Shenbagam (Jyothika). He wins over her heart by helping her out when her brother died.

    Sify wrote, "The film makes you laugh and cry at the same time. However the highlight of the film is Surya as Chinna and he is extraordinary. Here is one of his most lovable performances as the handicap, though as the morose Karthik, he just passes muster. Jyothika is a revelation (also in her first dual role) as the bubbly Priya and the blind Shenbagham. In her first de-glamorised role as Shenbagham she has proved her histrionics. Vivek for a change has a full length role and he brings the house down with his one-liners. Music by Yuvan is avearge but the background score is good. Director Sasi Sankar has to be applauded for making a feel-good film without any violence, vulgarity or even bad words.".

    Indiaglitz wrote, "Surya deserves appreciation for his astounding performance. He is at his best, be it humor or action. The actior has scored a hat trick with Perazhagan now following his Kaakha Kaakha and Pithamagan last year. After a long gap, Vivek has succeeded in evoking laughter. A tailor-made role for Vivek in which he really excels. Actress Malavika appear for a number. Also in the cast includes Manorama, Devan, T P Gajendran, a debutant Bobby and Muthukalai."
