Ever since the film has released, it has been garnering overwhelming responses from critics and the audience alike. Fans who watched the first day, the first show of the film took to Twitter and shared their reviews.
Take a look at all the reviews and reactions to Chiranjeevi's GodFather
A user wrote, #Godfather is a content-driven film. Megastar tried a role that that's doesn't have his usual comedy and masala entertainment. But director designed film in such a way that the character elevates regularly. It's a hit film. People come out of theatre with a positive feeling!
"#GodFather : The salt and pepper look suited well to the Megastar Chiranjeevi. Satyadev and Nayanthara have done their parts well," wrote another.
The third fan-hailed action sequence of megastar Chiranjeevi wrote, "#Megastar's Eyes performs in few scenes that are more effective and powerful than a hero beating 100 villains at a time.#GodFather."

Few fans lauded Chiranjeevi's performance, while some were of the view that Bollywood megastar Salman Khan was a misfit.
A user wrote, "Somehow, I felt Salman Khan a miscast, he is a too big star to play such a role. Plus, his portions lack effectiveness. 2/2."
Take a look.
However, some ardent Salman Khan fans lauded his screen presence.
#Salmankhan mass, Stardom bolte hai bhai ka...Today all shows of #godfather is filled with almost 80-90% occupancy in patna despite knowing it's just cameo... His craze among masses is unbelievable n unimaginable...The biggest box office puller for a reason... pic.twitter.com/bsThkogcAC— Syed Slays (@being_syedslayr) October 5, 2022
