Magalir Mattum Public Response:
Jyothika is the heart and soul of the film and audiences are awestruck with her performance. The film is specially based on women freedom, and it shows us the inequality that exists in our society. The music by Ghibran is a great asset to the movie especially Gubu Gubu, sung by actor Karthi. The song Adi Vadi goes well with the beautiful visuals, all credits goes to Cinematographer Manikandan. The cameo role of actor Madhavan is well received by the audiences. The chemistry between the four women is amazing.
