"Maharaja" garnered positive reviews upon its release, with critics and audiences alike praising Sethupathi's stellar performance, Philomin Raj’s sharp editing, and Swaminathan's engaging screenplay and direction.

Fans across the nation will be thrilled as Netflix ensures a wide reach for "Maharaja," premiering it in multiple languages including Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, and Hindi simultaneously on July 12, 2024.
