Nandamuri Balakrishna's "Lion" starring Trisha and Radhika Apte in the female leads has released in theatres on 14 May and garnered positive reviews from viewers across the globe.
"Lion" is an action entertainer with a right blend of mass elements like romance, comedy, music, punch dialogues and family sentiments. Debutant director Satyadev has written the script for the movie. Nandamuri Balakrishna has played double roles as Godse and Bose, while Trisha and Radhika Apte appeared as his love interests in the film.
The audiences, who watched "Lion", say that the movie has an interesting story and Satyadev has done fantastic job as a director. The movie is a good entertainer and it will impress all classes of viewers. The suspense story in first half and racy screenplay in second half will keep engaged the movie buffs. It is different from Balayya's films as it does not have unnecessary elevations and heroism scenes, say the viewers.
Balakrishna's performance is the main highlight of "Lion". Trisha and Radhika's glamour, well-choreographed stunts and action sequences, Mani Sharma's amazing background score, Venkata Prasad's beautiful picturisation, comedy and punch dialogues are other attractions of the movie.
After watching it, many film goers posted their verdict on the movie on their Twitter pages. We bring you some unique Twitter comments. Read live update of "Lion" movie review by viewers:

#Lion is a good mass entertainer that will do well at BoxOffice..Delete Legend from ur mind, u will enjoy it more.A sure shot hit (not a BB) Balayya's performance,Decent pace,ManiSharma's BGM,Terrific last 30 min took it to next level..A gud entertainer despite some glitches #Lion Debutant director SatyaDeva definitely has talent but he should be be more careful regarding the pace of the film..He is here to stay #Lion Downside,The cinematography is pretty bad..Same applies to Editing..Better camerawork & editing would have really helped.. #Lion Finally, if u can excuse some flaws here & there U will surely like it..Balayya has a potential winner on his hands.Publicity cheyandi #Lion
