A Box Full Of Surprises!
Radhe Shyam is much more than just a visually rich romantic flick. Superlative writing at regular intervals keeps the curiosity alive and kicking for almost the entire film. Despite Prabhas being a spoilsport, the drama and emotions connect well.(more)

Urban love story
Radhe Shyam is an urban romantic drama with an interesting premise and grand visuals. Prabhas and Pooja Hegde shoulder the film with their sincere performances. But the slow narration, lack of strong drama and rushed climax spoil the mood a bit. (more)

Cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa - besides lending a part of his name to a key character in the film - delivers unblemished and impressive compositions all right, but in the absence of a palpable and passable context for all the superficial 'beauty' that is on show, the undeniably good work that he and the visual effects team do is rendered ineffectual.(more)

Prabhas-starrer expects us to swallow, hook, line and so many sinkers, and we are constantly collecting our jaws off the floor.

A period romance bogged down by poor writing
The screenplay is cluttered with pointless moments and characters who don�t serve the story. Radhe Shyam has been shot on a grand scale in different parts of Europe, lending it a fairytale-like vibe. The music by Justin Prabhakaran also blends well with the story. The VFX team deserves applause for their work.(more)
