The film received mixed to positive reviews from critics.
Logesh Balachandran of The Times of India rated the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "Overall, Sarkunam's Pattathu Arasan might work for a few but wish someone would bring inventive ideas into this genre." Yuvashree of ABP Live gave 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "If only some of the cringe sentimental scenes had been trimmed and a bit more fight scenes had been included, the titular king would have really rocked the bandwagon." Chandhini R of Cinema Express rated the film 2 out of 5 stars and wrote "Despite the never-ending barrage of rural dramas coming our way, it is a genre that still works because the right film made in this milieu can showcase the rootedness and vibe." Dinamalar rated the film 2.25 out of 5 stars. Sruthi Ganapathy Raman of Film Companion wrote "But when the film establishes the name of the only lead female character in the movie, well after 90 minutes into runtime, tokenism rears its ugly head. And its allegiance becomes clear." Ashwin Ram of Moviecrow gave the film’s rating 2 out of 5 and wrote "An insane yet interesting conflict presented with a screenplay that should have been done decades ago and an emotional drama that doesn’t have any tension or rooting factors." A critic for Cinema Vikatan wrote that "Taking a familiar village story, the team of 'Pattathu Arasan' has created a boring film with scenes that are not new."
