Reception[edit]

The film received mixed reviews from the critics. Sify said "Ezhu Sundara Rathrikal gives you the feeling that there is a basic storyline here, which could have been fine as a feel good entertainer, if it was made well. In the current form, all that this confusion drama succeeds in is to leave you more confused".[4] The Times of India rated the film 3/5 and said "Lal Jose intently tries to hold the complexities with a sense of triviality, he does away with tears and piano at times of grave emotional crises and would instead squeeze in cartoonish sequences. The light-hearted treatment works to an extent, but not for long as the narrative is crippled by a sluggishness that results from a poorly conceived script".[5] Filmibeat wrote "There are some scenes where you can see the typical Lal Jose touch in the movie, but whether the director have fully succeeded to satisfy the viewers, it's a no. Still, Ezhu Sundara Rathrikal is a feel good movie which has its moments here and there" and rated 3/5.[6]

Box office[edit]

The film was an average grosser at the box office. Ezhu Sundara Rathrikal received 5.6 crore as satellite rights from a Malayalam TV channel, a highest amount for a Malayalam film at that time.[citation needed]
