Average Ratings Given by Audience: 3
"Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum" is a feel-good entertainer and has a good story. Vijay Sethupathi, as always, comes out with flying colours and Madonna Sebastian is impressive in her role. People have fallen in love with her expressions and it is a good start for her in Kollywood.
Quirky presentation shows the brilliance of Nalan in the craft and he has got the best out of cinematographer and music director. The slow narration and over-dramatic scenes will not have much impact on the overall content. Here, we bring to you the viewers' response to the film:

Dilani Rabindran posted: After VijayS #KaKaKaPo's standout pt is its impeccable cinematography. To see such detail in a heroine's eyeliner deserves applause alone. Enjoyed @Music_Santhosh 's tracks for #KaKaKaPo but found the BGM to be a bit overdramatic at times given the light & airy visuals
ChristopherKanagaraj posted: #KaKaKaPo 2 superb scenes : One is the viluppuram portion where VS & Madonna meet her parents and second is the Avadi IT interview portion.
