Critics Review


A Genuine Remake With A Promising Debut By Dhruv

Dhruv as Adithya holds an impressive debut. After all the hues and cries around this project, he delivers a pleasant performance. The charm and presence he has is promising. And in the film's very famous breakup scene or the interrogation sequence, he is fantastic and genuinely working as the character!(more)

A well-made, if overtly faithful, remake with Adithya Varma.

The film is as intense as the original, with a lead performance that suggests that we might be witnessing the birth of a star. Dhruv Vikram comes up with a performance that apes Vijay Deverakonda's intense and raw act in the original note for note, but there is an assuredness and honesty here that makes us appreciate it rather than dismiss it just as mimicking.(more)

Dhruv Vikram single-handedly powers Adhithya Varma to make it a worthy watch. The film will work better for those who have not seen the original.

The film could have been far better if it had made a few changes to the climax and were given more meticulous detail. But Dhruv Vikram showcases a monstrous performance, which is one reason that you need to watch this flick.(more)

Dhruv Vikram is earnest, sincere in this remake of Arjun Reddy

Adithya Varma is as lengthy as Arjun Reddy and it does get slightly restless in the second half, especially if you watched the original. But the performance of Dhruv Vikram really elevates the film even in the blandest sequences. Dhruv is a promising talent and no matter how Adithya Varma performs at the box office, he's here to stay and make a mark. Banita Sandhu as Meera is aptly cast and she really sells the vulnerability of her character quite convincingly.(more)

A faithful 'Arjun Reddy' remake that retains its soul, but lacks conviction

The issue with Arjun Reddy was that Sandeep Vanga Reddy made his hero a tad sympathetic for his (re)actions. But then, who are we to judge these people? Shortly after the release of Million Dollar Baby, film critic Roger Ebert wrote an essay wherein he argued that film critics should not approach movies with their moral lenses on. How appropriate, I wonder.(more)
