An excerpt from the CE review read, "Jananam 1947 Pranayam Thudarunnu is the closest Malayalam cinema has got to the MT Vasudevan Nair classic, Oru Cheru Punchiri. It exudes the same warmth, comfort and hope."

In an exclusive conversation with CE, director Abijith said, "MT sir's film was definitely my major point of reference—considering its focus on two elderly individuals—but I have consciously tried my best to avoid any similarity. I only intended to evoke the same heartwarming feeling from it. If people are reminded of and mention MT sir's classic alongside my film, there's no greater appreciation I could receive as a filmmaker."
