Jeeva Rathnam has delivered an impressive performance with his sheer innocence and aggressive performance as per the demand of the script. Eshanya who appears as his love interest has very less screen space in the film. However, the actress has delivered a neat performance. Thambi Ramaiah is the backbone of the film and shares equal screen space with the hero. His timely humorous mimics tickles one's funny bones. His partnership with Mottai Rajendran is laudable. Everytime the duo appears on the screen, the audience go on splits. Though Mottai Rajendran appears only for about fifteen minutes on screen, his performance is worth it.
As horror films are the current trend in Kollywood, Kanmani's directorial Peigal Jaakirathai stands out for its uniqueness in the script. With that said, the film's narration and execution could have been better. Also, the length of the film could have been reduced with crisper editing. Music and background scoring by Maria Jerald is impressive. Cinematography by Mallikarjun is worth the praise.
