Janani Iyer has done her role justice and strikes a chord with the audience especially during the romantic scenes.

In short, her character's transition to a beautiful villain catches many off guard and is a masterstroke for the film overall.
Bala Saravanan's portions in the film are few, but noteworthy. As expected, he has delivered in his comedy.
Rohin Venkatesan has paid attention to not insert unnecessary sequences and has focused on giving a film that audiences will want to watch. As mentioned earlier, he deserves praise for sketching Sshivada's character's transition in a beautiful and unexpected manner.
Ghibran's musical score is soothing and especially in the background score of scenes featuring Sshivada is exceptional.
Ravivarman Neelamegam's cinematography deserves a word of praise for showing the film in such a beautiful manner.
In short, Adhe Kangal is enjoyable.
