It is a coming of age film starring Tamizha in the lead role opposite Aathmika, with Vivekh and Vijayalaskshmi playing his parents. The film also stars Vigneshkanth and Ananth in supporting roles. The entertainer, produced by Sundar C, has opened to a positive response.

The Hindu reviews the film and says, "It intends to entertaining and colourful – and remains so at most times. The comedy does bring a smile at times, thanks to the internet stars that it features. For a film that has music as an integral part, the tunes are catchy — Aadhi cleverly re-uses some of his popular previous independent tracks, like 'Vaadi Pulla' and 'Club Le Mabbu Le'. I liked his casting of Vivek as the father; he aces it, with a firm grip on character. That a comedian clicks in a serious role is proof that Meesaya Murukku has got a few things right."

The Times of India gives the film 3 out of 5 stars and says, "Aadi, has put up a decent performance, and as a director, he has ensured that the film has ample moments for youngsters to cheer. Vivekh, as a loving dad, is apt in his role and has scored in many scenes. Vijayalakshmi, as the protagonist’s mother, and Aathmika are okay in their roles, while it is the characters in the college which are engaging enough to make the audience sit and watch throughout. Vigneshkanth and the other characters who appear now and then are hilarious and are apt in supporting roles. A little more command over storytelling in the first half could have made this a superb campus entertainer."

Sify News reviews the film and says, "Adhi is average as an actor but his image holds the film, thanks to his crowd pulling power as an independent composer. Newcomer Aathmika looks comely and given an adequate performance. Meesaya Murukku is a decent debut directorial and heroic outing from Adhi, the film clicks mainly because of the real life connect."

The film’s first half is funny and throws up some interesting turns, the effort to hide which is proving to be a strain while writing this review. The humour is not of the laugh-a-minute variety, and owes more to these situational twists than to wisecracks.
