S. R. Praveen of "The Hindu" gave a positive review: "Syam Pushkaran, in writing the revenge story, takes away the usual ingredients of hate and anger, and replaces it with lots of humour, arriving as a torrent in one-liners, in situations and even in the minute gestures of the characters ...

About the development and concept of "Idukki", Pothan said that the song helped him introduce the audience to the story's locale: "It was the plot of the movie that came to my mind first. Then I decided to fix the milieu in Idukki. Not all viewers may have been to Idukki". According to the director, "A person from an urban setting may not go on to take revenge like what the central character does in Maheshinte
. Hence, I had to convey the lifestyle of [the] Idukki people to the audience". Lyricist Rafeeq Ahammed said that he had never visited Idukki or felt deeply about the district. He asked friends in Idukki: "They told me that they wanted a song that captures the beauty of the place. It is one of the beautiful places in Kerala embellished with forests and rivers". The music was composed after the lyrics were written; Ahammed wrote the song as a poem in one day. According to Bijibal, it was easy to compose "Idukki" because it had such "motivati[ng] lyrics". He originally recorded the song with a small orchestra, singing it himself. The composer later recorded another version with a lush orchestra; however, Pothan thought it lacked the beauty of the original and used the first version in the film.
