Gemini Ganesan has widely been praised for his versatily in acting, having performed a "wide range of roles".[18] He was "at his best" with Savitri, with whom he had acted in several successful films.[36] In February 2006, Dayanidhi Maran had released a commemorative postage stamp of the actor, who he described as a "multi-dimensional personality, who evinced keen interest in Carnatic music, reading, yoga and poetry."[37] He is also credited for having introduced leading Tamil actor Kamal Haasan through the National Award winning Kalathur Kannamma, where the latter was a child artist.

Ganesan also took part in a World Tamil Conference in Kuala Lumpur, notably because he "loved Tamil language". According to politician M. Karunanidhi, the actor had developed a "reformer's mind" because he was raised by his aunt Muthulakshmi Reddy, who fought for abolition of the devadasi system. Director K. Balachandar called Ganesan a "director's delight" and stated that, "The advantage of having him as a hero was that he was convinced about the capabilities of a director, he would leave it the director and would not interfere". Lyricist Vairamuthu said, "‘Gemini' Ganesan was not envious of anyone and promoted many actors by recommending them to producers and directors".

Despite being one of the most successful actors of Tamil cinema during his time, Gemini Ganesan was criticized for being "fossilised in one type of portrayal",[36] as most of his films were typically "boy meets girl" romantic films.[39] Because of his portrayal of soft roles and him not doing action roles, he was informally nicknamed "Sambhar" by colleagues Sivaji Ganesan and M. G. Ramachandran.[8] He was married to multiple women like actresses Savitri and Pushpavalli, which led to him being labelled a "womanizer".[12] His hostile relationship with daughter Rekha was also a major criticism. He did not acknowledge Rekha's paternity during her childhood. It was in the early 1970s, when Rekha was looking for a footing in Bollywood, that she revealed her origins. Later, at the peak of her career, Rekha told a magazine interviewer that her father's neglect still rankled and that she had ignored his efforts at reconciliation.[40][41] She did not even attend her father's funeral in 2005, and once when asked about their relationship in a televised interview, she paused with silence and revealed nothing.
