Rating the film “4.75 / 5”, a fan shared a picture from the theater praising Prabhas’ work. He wrote, “After watching the film #RadheShyam, I firmly believe again that if there is anyone in Indian cinema who is on the scale of Hollywood and above, it is #Prabhas darling. The way his charm is reflected on screen is incredible, I was stunned. 4.75 / 5 Liked the picture.
Another fan shared a video from a theater and tweeted, “#Radesh leaves the theater with satisfaction”. Comparing the film to Prabhas’ Bhagwati, one fan wrote, “After Bhagwati 2, #RadheShyam is the first Indian film to appear as a true epic. #Prabhas is a common factor for both.
Someone shared a video talking about the film and gave it a zero rating. He wrote, “Zero stars for #Ratheshyam. Please do not publish every South Indian film as an Indian film. We have a good opinion on South Indian films but the recently released dubbed films have been disappointing except for Pushpa. Just because we love you does not mean we accept garbage. Another social media user compared Pushpa to Radhe Shyam and tweeted, “#RadheShyam will not charge even half of what #Pushpa charged in the North.”
Film critic Shiva Satyam gave Radhe Shyam zero stars and advised people to take headache pills if they plan to watch the film. He wrote, “# Radheshyam # could not bear a single word of criticism.” I have taken 2 chloride so far & I still have a severe headache. This is the scariest & boring movie of the last few years. Everything & everything in this movie is bad. 0 * / 5. Tip: Take 2-3 chloride tablets before looking at this picture.
Radhe Shyam is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Vamsi and Pramod. Published in five languages: Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
Earlier, the film was slated to hit theaters on January 14. However, it was postponed due to the increase in Govt-19 cases and uncertainty about theatrical activities amid the epidemic.
Apart from Prabhas and Pooja, the film also stars Sachin Kedekar, Priyadarshi Pulikonda, Bhagyasree, Jegapathi Babu, Murali Sharma, Kunal Roy Kapoor, Riti Kumar, Sasha Chhetri and Sathyan. Actor Amitabh Bachchan became the narrator for the Hindi version of the film.
