Release and reception

The film had a theatrical release on 1 December 2023 across Tamil Nadu. A reviewer from Times Now noted that the film told a “heartwarming tale” and that “is sure to make you question both your service to your nation and your sense of humanity”. A critic from Cinema Express wrote “the melodrama in Naadu is insufferably overstated and all for a story that is flat and pretty straightforward” and that “Naadu might have its heart in the right place but the heart pumps gallons of tears instead of blood”.
