Georgettan's Pooram is the first release of Dileep in 2017 after Welcome to Central Jail, which failed to impress the audience previous year. The trailer and songs of the latest Dileep-starrer have attracted the cine-goers. The comedy entertainer is expected to perform well at the box office as audience have always accepted movies set in Thrissur. Interestingly, Dileep's character speaks the local dialect in the film.

Georgettan's Pooram also stars TG Ravi, Assim Jamal, Chemban Vinod Jose, Malavika Nair, Kalaranjini, Sunil Sukhada, Sasi Kalinga, Janardhanan, Jayaraj Warrier and Sathi Premji in pivotal roles. However, the Dileep-starrer faces a tight competition from megastar Mammootty's family action thriller The Great Father, which has already become the biggest opening day grosser in Malayalam by making a collection of over Rs 4.31 crore on day one beating the records of Mohanlal's Pulimurugan. It remains to be seen if Georgettan's Pooram will give a strong competition to The Great Father in coming days.

#GeorgettansPooram another typical Dileep entertainer 4 this summer.Without much over the top comedies it falls in the Decent category First half has good comedies / One liners and the sentiments in the second haf is neatly executed with a fine climax. Dileep does his usual best while his side kicks does their duty especially Sharafudheen Rajisha has nothing much to do. Overall its an decent flick which should satisfy Dileep's core family audience for this vacation season [sic]," tweets Forumkeralam.

"#GeorgettansPooram. Avg one , family may like it , typical dileep stuff , far better than his previous films. This will not spoil #tgf," tweets Rahul.

"georgettanspooram 1st half: good comedies, dileepettans intro is simple, some chalis r there. Far better than king liar.. [sic]," comments Rinoy Sam David‏.

"Georgettans Pooram can be described as an average movie which follows the same and usual pattern of regular commercial movie. Georgettans Pooram is an average movie which is a one time watchable choice in all manner. Watch it with less expectation and for a time pass Georgettans Pooram can be a ok choice. My Personal Rating 2.5/5," AJ Valiyaveetil writes.

"GeorgettansPooram clean family entertainer! Average 1st half but lots of comic elements! Above average 2ndhalf with emotional touch!," tweeted Rosu.

Audience response till interval

According to the social media users, Georgettan's Pooram first half is a let down even for the hardcore fans of Dileep with a slow and sloppy narrative without quality humour to boast about.

Few netizens have commented on social media that it is just okay till interval. "Comedy is not working well, and Dileep's slang doesn't feel natural," says another social media user.

 "Same type movie... only actress different," comments another cine-goer.
