Kirubhakar Purushothaman from The Indian Express rated this movie 2.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “It is undefinable, just like how you can’t rationalize the craze for Rajinikanth. Sadly, director Krishna and the film don’t do much for Simbu. The actor, however, saves the film.“
Bharathy Singaravel from The News Minutes rated this movie 1.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “Pathu Thala has been marketed as a “neo-noir action thriller”. The film has a few formulaic moments that aspire to that description, but director Obeli N Krishna fails to pull together a cohesive story. Even AR Rahman’s music does not elevate this film which cannot boast of a single memorable song.“
