The posters, songs and trailer have generated a lot of curiosity and expectations about Jersey. Addressing its pre-release, Venkatesh had said, "Nani is one of the finest actors we have in Tollywood. As far as the movie is concerned, the trailer itself is a mind-blowing. I genuinely believe that this would hit the ball out of the park. I love cricket and I am eagerly waiting to watch the movie."
Film critic, Jeevi, who was also impressed by the trailer of Jersey, recently tweeted, "#JerseyTrailer: looks like a story of men of 3 generations who inspire each other. And a girl who is so sweet while in love and so frustrated after marriage with the same man. Expecting this cricket backdrop film to have a story of a human triumph and an emotional narrative."

Tarak voice tho road safety instructions #Jersey.@anirudhofficial Reviting BGM elevated the interval And loved the intermission frame. A very good 1st half , trailer reveals almost all the plot points so the movie takes it time to take off & the director switches gears at pre interval and never looks back Excited. #Jersey

One word http://O.U.T.S.T.A.N.D.I.NG @NameisNani You never seize to surprise!! Not able to get over the last 20 minutes! #Jersey Speciale mention @anirudhofficial! Blockbuster background, lifts the whole emotion to next level!
#jersey is an emotionally strong film...Nani nailed it with his career best performance... strong performances , emotional sequences and well crafted climax one of the best in recent times.... masterpiece #Jersey review..
#Jersey Man Nani what an actor. Dude delivered the best performance of his career. I loved the film but it may be a little emotional for some. But the climax was great and it was super well made. People shouldnt miss out on it.
INTERVAL.......... #JERSEY Good so far, emotional one Sixer kottadu #Arjun @NameisNani Super performance Buddodu kuda kummesadu acting... Father n son scenes worked out very well Kummesav bro @gowtam19 @anirudhofficial BGM @ShraddhaSrinath is good. Perfectly executed emotional entertainer #JERSEY 3.19/5
Decent first half #Jersey #Jersey Overall decent movie, @NameisNani was great as usual, @ShraddhaSrinath is very cute and performed well. @anirudhofficial bgm was wonderful. Should have had some high and entertaining moments...Watchable 3/5
#Jersey is emotional sucker punch of a film. You need patience to sit till the end but you cannot leave in the middle. Similar to #RohitSharma batting. But in the end, a rewarding experience. @NameisNani reinvented himself and hope he continues this way. May catchup slowly Loved the way the bud (child actor) who played #Nani's son acted. The scenes between them form the heart and soul of the film. In fact, their scenes in the trailers interested me to go and watch #Jersey. And didn't disappoint
#Jersey - Best ever performance by @NameisNani , the sentimental scenes and the climax were too heart touching! Had to clear my eyes so many times! Beautiful movie overall - had to be a BLOCKBUSTER! no choice Director #GowtamTinnanuri is solid #Tollywood #Telugu
#Jersey is an emotional ride..Nani's excellent performance in recent times & Anirudh's background added life...another Pilla Zamindar for @NameisNani
#Jersey Decent 1st half ...Starts slow but picks toward the interval. #Jersey Overall one of the best movies in recent times An emotional journey from start to finish and climax leaves you emotional...Career best performance for @NameisNani Congrats @anirudhofficial @SitharaEnts Rating: 3.75/5 Go for it!
