Acharya Movie Review
Acharya review.PR Handout

Acharya is being funded by Chiranjeevi's son and actor Ram Charan on their home banner of Konidela Production. The movie has Pooja Hegde doing the female lead with Charan himself enacting an important character.

Sonu Sood, Vennela Kishore, Posani Krishna Murali, Nassar, Ajay, Tanikella Bharani and others are in the supporting roles. Mahesh Babu is the narrator for the film in which Regina Cassandra has done a special number. The movie has Mani Sharma's music, Tirru's cinematography and Naveen Nooli's editing.

A naxal comrade steps into a corrupt temple town and restores the town's true identity of being a serene town under the guidance of an able ancient clan.

The movie has piqued a lot of interest with its impressive trailer and promos. With the Mega Star playing the lead role and acting alongside his son Ram Charan, who is basking in the success of SS Rajamouli's RRR, the audience is eagerly looking forward to the film.

Acharya will have its premieres at foreign countries on Thursday evening (Friday in India).Will it live up to the expectations? Check out from the viewers' response:

Ramesh Bala: Megastar #Chiranjeevi & Mega Powerstar #RamCharan please take a bow..
Another mass entertainer #Acharya has released this week..
The father-son team's powerful presence over shadows every thing else in the movie..

Haricharan Pudipeddi: #Chiranjeevi & #RamCharan don't let us down. Another mass entertainment film releases this weekend with #Acharya. The father son combinations on-screen presence overshadows every thing else in the film.

Ram Venkat Srikar: After enduring a painfully generic first act, around the 50-minute mark in #Acharya, there's a kick-ass moment involvement Chiranjeevi and a chariot. At that point, I felt the film finally began. Nope. It never took off.

MigaMike: Genuine review :- Frist half story narration Superbbb & #Chiranjeevi garu Dance Grace .E age lo kuda ha grace ante Really impressive. #ManiSharma garu music is Highlight.Interval bang aythe Mass Rampage #SIDDHA #Ramcharan acting is so gud upto now.Overall gud #Acharya

Ram Venkat Srikar: #Acharya is terrible. Might have been considered a good actioner had it released a decade ago. Sticks to the most basic revenge template. The writing and characters are so bland that it even renders a performer like Chiranjeevi charmless. Even Mani Sharma couldn't salvage this.

Venky Reviews: Chiru didn't even get the scope to perform as his role was written poorly. Charan had a better role and did well but even his role lacked the emotional connect necessary #Acharya
#Acharya Overall a low-grade 1st half with a slightly better but still outdated 2nd half!
Apart from a few scenes and enjoyable dances, nothing else works.
Outdated screenplay/story with poor BGM and VFX. Kortala's Weakest Work by far.
Rating: 2-2.25/5

Mahi Reviews: #Acharya
1st half - Decent and Ordinary
2nd half - 40 minutes are literally for fans and masses, Fights, Bgm, Songs in 2nd half are Super executed, The climax is very emotional and little message about Hindu Dharma
Overall my Rating is 3.5/5

Arjun Dhfc : Gurukul boy
NAXAL Variations in Acting

God level Actor #SIDDHA

Shiva Reddy: #Acharya Aa BGM endira Mani
35 minutes into the movie and it feels like a outdated 90s movie so far. Doesn't even feel like a kortala movie #Acharya

Neeraj Kumar On Duty : #Acharya 1st half as of now
Lahe Lahe Boss grace
