In April 2008, director Suraj announced that he had signed on with production house Studio Green to make a film with Karthi in the lead role. Early reports suggested that the film would star Anushka Shetty and Priyamani and would be a remake of the successful Telugu language film, Vikramarkudu, though Suraj claimed it would be an original script. However the film was placed on the backburner, with Karthi proceeding to star in a remake of Vikramarkudu under the direction of Siva in a project titled Siruthai (2011). In March, the film was titled as Alex Pandiyan named after Rajinikanth’s iconic character from Moondru Mugam.

The role was later given to newcomer Akanksha Puri. Sanusha was roped in for another leading female role in the film, while it was confirmed that Santhanam would play brother to the three girls apart from Anushka.

Alex Pandian fetched largely negative reviews upon release. A critic from Sify described it as a “potpourri of commercial mass masala not mixed in the right proportion”, going on to conclude: “An old-fashioned entertainer that plays to the gallery, Alex Pandian is exaggerated and formulaic”. Pavithra Srinivasan from Rediff claimed that the film was a “masala, cliche-ridden entertainer which fails miserably”, calling it a “disaster”, while giving it 1.5 stars out 5. The Times of India gave it 2.5 out of 5 and wrote, “Alex Pandian, while not really a bad film or a badly-made one, often feels strictly functional. Yes, the comedy sequences work and save the film to an extent, but considering its minimal ambitions, a sense of deja vu and disappointment as you leave the theatre is inescapable”. The Hindu’s reviewer Malathi Rangarajan claimed, “Karthi tries to infuse spirit and energy into the film with an ample dose of humour, but the story that’s run of the mill and comedy that tires you after a point offer little help” Deccan Chronicle wrote that the film “may fail to enthral even die-hard Karthi fans”. Vivek Ramz from in.com rated it 1/5 and stated, “Alex Pandian is unintentionally funny right from the opening scene. Director Suraaj has taken the plot from hundreds of mindless masala movies. The villains in the film are just caricatures and evoke more laughs than the comedians. It’s high time director Suraaj thought of something new than repeatedly giving crap in the name of commercial entertainers”. Newstrackindia called the film a “disappointing commercial pot-boiler” and added that director Suraj “randomly throws in five songs, plenty of action sequences and good amount of comedy, without any purpose or passion”.
