- Chiranjeevi’s super explosive performance is the biggest plus point.
- Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is the story of India’s first freedom fighter, who’s known to a very few which keeps the interests alive throughout.
- Though lots of cinematic liberties are being taken, still it’s worth the watch.
- Nayanthara as Chiranjeevi’s wife, Sudheep, Tamannah have done decent job. Amitabh Bachan has hardly any worthwhile role to make his presence felt.
- Film has many many plus points like it has been shot on massive canvas, great visual spectacle, mind blowing action/ battle scenes/ sets and great patriotic saga.
- Songs are picturized on an extreme scale.
- Cinematography(R. Rathnavelu) is of high standard.
- Director Surendra Reddy has fulfilled his desire to mount this magnum opus on Bahubali’s level.
- Conflict between villagers & British Soldier is repeated too many times.
- Film has resemblance to “Lagaan”, “Mangal Pandey” etc
- Too lengthy & requires atleast 20-25 mins trimming.
Promos have created great pre-release curiosity and hence, is likely to do good business in South but due to excessive south flavor, it might struggle to do decent business in Hindi.
