For the legion of Rajinikanth fans, this film is definitely worth a watch. Suganth of The Times of India gave the film 3. The film is motion capture 3D computer-animated but the animation is primaeval. There is also inconsistency in the animation.
Like any other Rajini movie, Kochadaiiyaan too worships its star. His character appears in almost every scene and there are fan-pleasing moments in the form of stylistic gestures and dialogues. However, its Tamil version has the potential to prove a big hit because of the demi-God status enjoyed by Rajinikanth among the Tamil-speaking audience and also due to the novelty factor.
Soundarya's project management skills are exceptional and this being just her first film; her capabilities at pulling off such a film are truly praise-worthy. He praised the director stating, "As director Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin puts it in a pre-movie build up scene, it's homage to Years of Indian Cinema. Kochadaiiyaan attempts to bring to life a whole new world replete with a virtual environment, virtual props, as well as virtual characters.

Shobana is paired opposite Kochadaiyan Ranadhiran. Their costumes add some colour to a palette of a dozen shades of just black and grey that makes it extremely depressing at times. There are far too many songs in the film and they really begin to annoy you, especially when neither the music, nor the sound effects or visuals do the film much credit.
The first half is slow and chaotic, but the second half slowly draws you in and one gradually gets attuned to the characters and their situations. Despite all the technological hype, it is still extremely tough to connect with the virtual characters, especially Rajini, whose larger-than-life persona cannot be captured by any path-breaking technology.
While Kochadaiiyaan may not the giant leap for Indian cinema, it is definitely a start to an alternative form of filmmaking. Despite its faults, both Rajini and Soundarya deserve to be applauded for daring to take a path not travelled by Indian filmmakers.
