Ramanujam of The Hindu wrote, "The mental conflict of a husband suspecting the platonic relationship of his wife with a male friend, known to her for long, attains glorious proportions, thanks to the wonderful performances of Raghuvaran (husband), Karthik (friend) and Revathi in Span Vision's Thotta Sinungi.
