Sarileru Neekevvaru

Critics Review


Been there, done that

The film gets into its groove some thirty minutes into the first half with a lengthy train sequence. The comedy here is loud and over the top but the actors make it work. The too cute that they are almost stupid heroines have sort of become annoying but here it doesn't come across as odd because the silliness is a part of every character and Rashmika too delivers the right note. But what is it with the RAPE joke? A mother falsely accusing the hero of raping her daughter so that she can get him to marry her isn't something you should be doing in the name of comedy. It is wrong at every level. (more)

Sarileru Neekevvaru is a celebration of the Mahesh Babu from the past, and the in-form superstar delivers!

On the whole, the film can be watched for Mahesh Babu's outstanding performance. A few scenes will certainly give fans the goosebumps as the fans can enjoy the Mahesh Babu's blast from the past.(more)

Mahesh Babu film is utterly disappointing

Sarileru Neekevvaru is a mediocre film that could have been interesting if only the director had concentrated on the film's screenplay. If only.(more)

Mahesh Babu hits it out of the park in Anil Ravipudi's fine blend of heroism and comedy

The core issue addressed in Sarileru Neekevvaru could have pulled the narrative in a different direction. However, that is clearly not what Ravipudi was, perhaps, aiming for. The film is about Mahesh playing an action-packed role, after a long time, and his comic timing, which will leave you in splits. It is also about him dancing, after a long time, to a 'mass song' like 'Mind Block.'(more)

Mahesh Babu's film is a partly entertaining mixed bag

Sarileru Neekevvaru is a mixed bag; it's partly entertaining and at other times rather lame. Make what you will of lines such as 'meow meow pilli, milk boy ki pelli', referring to Mahesh as milk boy repeatedly.(more)



This one's worth watching for Mahesh Babu and Vijayashanthi's performances

Sarileru Neekevvaru definitely has its moments but Anil Ravipudi's bloated narrative that tries too hard, not to mention do everything at once without a proper structure in place proves to be a major drawback.(more)

Mahesh's Mass Treat

Sarileru Neekevvaru is a well-packaged Sankranthi treat that has good entertainment narrated at regular intervals. The film is Mahesh Babu's one-man show and the added advantage are the hit songs, mass fights, and good comedy. Though the second half gets slightly bogged down with a weak climax, the film is a feast for the fans and masses. It will rake in good collections and would be loved during this festival time as it has something for everyone. Go watch and enjoy Mahesh's mass treat.(more)
