The action drama, which narrates the story of freedom fighters Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem, has impressed film critics and the audience alike. In her review of the film, The Indian Express’ Shubhra Gupta wrote, “The film casts not just one super-star, but two of them – Jr NTR and Ram Charan. The biggest super-star among them all is SS Rajamouli and the audience also saved the loudest ‘taalis’ for him.”
