Director Srinu Vaitla's Telugu movie "Bruce Lee - The Fighter" (BLTF) starring Ram Charan Teja and Rakul Preet Singh in the lead roles has got mixed reviews from the audiences in the premiere shows held on Thursday night.
"Bruce Lee - The Fighter" is an action film that has good dose of romance, comedy and family drama too. The movie has a routine story that is predictable in parts. The first half of the film is very engaging and entertaining, but the second half is a big let down, say the audiences.
The movie revolves around the story of a martial arts fighter who is popular as Bruce Lee. Ram Charan Teja plays the fighter, while Rakul Preet Singh appears as his love interest. Ram's electrifying performance, Rakul's glamour and their amazing chemistry are the big attractions of the film. The comedy timing of Brahmanandam, who appears as Susuki Subramanyam alias Peter alias Pakodi, and Chiranjeevi's guest appearances are other highlights of the movie, according to audience.
Kona Venkat and Gopimohan have written the script and dialogues for the film, while Srinu Vaitla penned the screenplay.
Made on a budget of Rs 37 crore, "Bruce Lee - The Fighter" has brilliant production values and S Thaman's songs and background score are the main attractions in the technical front. Manoj Paramahamsa's amazing picturisation, well choreographed action and dance, beautiful locales and punch dialogues are other attractions of the movie, say the audiences.
Some views are sharing their verdict on the film on their Twitter pages. We bring you some unique comments. Stay locked to this space to read the live update of "Bruce Lee - The Fighter" movie review by audience:

#BruceLee: 1st half is avg with good songs. Except Chiru presence nothing is there in 2nd half. BGM & Photography is good. Below Avg movie..
Sriram Varma @sriramForU
1st half done... Good so far Photography, dances and few funny scenes Charan better ayyadu.. Arun Vijay bavunnadu.. Dialogues bavunnai, Thaman BGMs good, Kriti karbanda character far better than heroine Rakul #BruceLee completed.. . Regular Telugu family commercial movie With enough mass elements Hit cinema.... No blockbuster and non-bahubali But one fact, Megastar looks ultimate aa four minutes kosam diehard fans repeats vestaru... Eagerly waiting for #Chiru150
Interval. Above average 1st half. Family scenes and songs are huge plus so far.Villain track weak #BruceLee Above avg 1st half and bad 2nd half. Below Avg on a whole. #BruceLee Almost nothing is in second half, Except for Chiru episode which is a feast for fans #BruceLee Charan excelled in Dances and Fights.Undoubtedly his best performance so far. #BruceLee
Aveg 1st half and bad 2nd half.Only highlight in 2nd half is Chiru's 5 mins role.Just super.#BruceLee
#BruceLeeTheFighter #BruceLee Decent 1st half... Ram Charan's dances and @MusicThaman BGM are very good...Need a big 2nd half now #BruceLeeTheFighter #BruceLee 2nd half not good...Megastar's Cameo saves the 2nd half...Below average movie. Don't believe fake reviews

#BruceLeeTheFighter Done! An average fare overall.. 2nd half is the spoil spot. A routine mass flick. Vaitla does well in the 1st half, but failed to maintain the tempo after interval. Megastar's scene was the only saviour in that. Don't expect a Sreenu vaitla mark comedy. It might end up with good numbers at box office. Personally, I'm not a fanatic for this kind of films.
Forced comedy, routine sentiment scenes tho muginchesaru first half #BruceleeTheFighter Problem vaitla tho kaadhu, kona and gopi routine story n dialogues #BruceLeeTheFighter Ali PK comedy yuck thooooo #BruceLeeTheFighter #BruceLeeTheFighter is another routine film frm Vaitla n gang. Rakul's glamour, songs and Chiru's cameo are the only plus. Irritating comedy
BLOCKBUSTER 1st half, Charan comedy timing, dances racha maxxxx, family sentiment scenes too good. #BruceLeeTheFighter Hittu cinema Ok first half n entertaining 2nd half. Charan acting better Dance in all songs Just loved dance in Ria song ❤
#BruceLeeTheFighter first has decent pace with routine storyline. Deeniki malli Story, Original story ani separate credits! #BaboyVytla #Dookudu, #Aagadu and now #BruceLeeTheFighter - all have same template to show the title and hero intro. #FirstHalf just okay.
Sudheer Krishna R @SudheerKrishnaR
#BruceLee - 5 scintillating songs, good first half and bearable 2nd half makes it an Avg fare. Expecting 45+ lacs Mpl and 55cr+ Overall.
The Tollywood Movie @dtollywoodmovie
#BruceLeeTheFighter 1st half avg.as usual ga undi #Brucelee 2nd half highlights Brucelee song and Megastar presence.
@arunvijayno1 looks stylish and menacing. makes a striking debut with #brucelee. he has a bright future if he is cast in good roles. For me @MusicThaman is the undisputed hero of #BruceLee He given superb songs and a striking BGM..His work sounds well on big screen
Laxman Anishetty @laxman_219
