Director Kamran has taken this film as an out and out comedy entertainer. But the film is not-so-humourous as the makers had promised. Every scene reminds you of something you might have seen in another film. The first half of the film is boring, while the second half is comparatively fast paced and enjoyable. However, the film on the whole succeeds in making you laugh only in parts.
Ma Ka Pa Anand's perfromance as an irresponsible youngster is imppresive. With that said, the actor fails to emote laughter in many of the scenes. Also his onscreen chemistry with Srushti Dange is not so convincing. Whereas, Srushti looked beautiful in her rural get-up, and has delivered an appreciable performance. Karunakaran who appears as Anand's friend had less scope to prove his talents. Sidharth Vipin adds some flavour to the film with his timely dialogue deliveries and body language. Jayaprakash is majestic in his looks and outfits, while Ilavarasu shines as a responsible father.
Music by Siddharth Vipin is below par, and the wrong placement of songs, is a biggest spoiler of the film. Editing by Arul Mozhi Varman could have been better with cripser cuts, as the film appears to be lengthy testing audiences' patience. On the whole, Navarasa Thilagam could have been a better film, with more interesting screenplay and a better presentation.
