Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor's Saaho opened to a gigantic hype across the nation on 30 October. The movie has garnered average to bad reviews from the audience cutting across language barriers, but the fans of the hero are complaining that the movie is being unfairly targeted by the fans of other actors to kill the prospects of the multilingual movie.
What do critics say?
Critics have found the movie to be an average outing. Prabhas's performance, the car chasing sequences and awe-inducing action blocks have been whole-heartedly praised by the reviewers. Although a few have complained about poor VFX scenes at parts, many have no issues with it considering the effort put in by the makers of the movie.
However, the problem lies with the narration. Too many twists and a weak storyline have not gone well with them, yet they have not called it a bad film.
Social Media Response
Well, there are hundreds of comments on Twitter which rip apart Saaho over its storyline and overall making. There are many people who have called it a "half baked product." For them, the first half is dull where Prabhas too cannot save the movie with his presence.
The fans of Prabhas have now hit out at those who are passing negative comments about Saaho. They complain that people are posting reviews without even watching the film to damage the prospects of the flick at the box office.
Prabhas's admirers blame the fans of other actors who are unfairly targeting the mega-budget flick Saaho by doing this negative campaign so that the box office records of their actors remain unaffected.

VEGE: #Saaho Below avg movie... Teesukunna setup & idea ok.. but too many unnecessary threads which make the core idea useless.. Action part is ok at places.. Nothing much to say about rest Prabhas pulled it to an extent but he also looked odd at places...Could have been lot better

PVK Infotainment: Could see lot of negative reviews spreading for #Saaho
Plz don't decide without watching.. there are negatives but it's easily a worth watchable movie for production value, stunts and visuals.
Interesting interval block and climax twist
Saikrishna: People started writing negative news? Foolish!! If you're capable of writing the reviews better do just a 15min of short film and show your visuals and idea. Then you will be able to know how pain and love towards cinema and efforts by the team. #Saaho #SaahoInCinemas
