Suresh edited the film. The film released on 6 December 2013 and received positive reviews from critics.The film did average business at the box office.
Thagararu is a well-made fast moving thriller with a terrific climax twist. It’s an unpredictable crime drama that combines violence and friendship set in Tamil cinema’s favourite milieu-Madurai. The Film may be a Madurai story, but it manages to keep one engrossed for the most part, and is worth a watch. Thanks to ensemble performances, snazzy camera work, slick editing, deft direction by Vinaayak, while it sizzles, what, however, makes the experience a bit deja vu is, it reminds Subramaniapuram and a slew of Madurai films.
