Overall, with unenhanced visuals that gives a sense of verisimilitude, acting that isn’t staged and dramatized in any obvious sense, and more importantly, characters that bring alive a subsection of the populace, Kaakka Muttai is sure to make you at least a slightly better person than you were before, owing to the reflective power of the film.

If not for anything else, then because Little Crow's Egg's cheeky grin is a treasure you'll store in your memories long after you've left the theatre.

In his first film, writer-director M Manikandan shows two kids, also first-time actors, in the least child-friendly surroundings
Suhani Singh, India Today
Just 98 minutes long, this movie is not your usual masala fare and is a breath of fresh air in Tamil cinema.
Latha Srinivasan, BollywoodLife
This is a film, which reminds us that they too are a part of this society and deserve opportunities that so many of us take for granted.
Udhav Naig, The Hindu
This is undoubtedly one of the best films Tamil cinema will see this year! It offers more than a slice of pizza, it offers us a slice of Kaaka Muttai‘s life! Go for it. It might teach you a thing or two about materialism and your kids about, well, how to be kids!
Raisa Nasreen, BookMyShow
Kaaka Muttai is a delightful entertainer with a subtle message

Instead of mourning later, do yourself a favor and watch this lovely slice-of-life drama in theaters
