The Otta movie got positive reviews from audiences and critics. Only 108 people rated this movie 9.6 stars out of 10 stars on IMDb, which are good reviews but can be fake as reviewers are very few.
Cris from The News Minutes rated this movie 2 stars out of 5 stars and said “It is not that Otta is not relatable. Resul has tried to give a faithful account of Hariharan’s story, depicted the realities that a runaway can end up in, and kept the flow. Only, the superficial treatment has weakened the effort.“
Sajin Shrijith from Cinema Express rated this movie 3.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “Yes, the overall experience is devastating, but, to put it simply, the purpose here, I believe, is to make us reflect on our dear ones and hold them close to our hearts instead of alienating them.“
Subhash K Jha from Times Now rated this movie 4.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “This is not the place for sidelining the fringe people in our society. Otta celebrates the have-nots without patronizing them. It is a superbly paced drama that deals a resounding blow in our guts. Arun Verma’s enriching cinematography, Zian Sreekanth’s seamless editing, and Cyril Kurivila’s invisible art direction make this the film of the year and one you won’t forget for a very long time.“
