Rajkummar Rao's latest release Srikanth has won over the audience. The film is a biography of visually impaired businessman Srikanth who didn't let his eyesight come in the way and built an empire. Not just that, he is known for providing jobs to thousands of people with special needs. Rajkummar Rao plays the titular role and Alaya F plays his love interest. On the other hand, Jyothika plays Rajkummar's teacher.

Social media reaction

"Even though this biopic is on screen, most theatres remain inaccessible to disabled people. Ironic!As long as this inequality exists, a need for movies like Srikanth will remain. #Srikanth, though less entertaining and more preachy, is a good start," wrote a user on X. "Self-pity is self-defeating...This is the story of someone who refused to be a BECHARA. #Srikanth is a heartwarming tale that leaves you feeling inspired & self belief..If Sri can do can't you...It's #rajkumarrao's terrific performance that keeps the ship float," another user commented.

"#RajkummarRao is exceptional in #Srikanth : a sensitive performance in a film that only suffers due to its highlight like structure. The journey with so much hardship required more emotional resonance! The film benefits from the earnestness of its message! We are all equal," a comment read. "The movie left a lasting impression on me. It was truly one of the best movies I've ever seen, with a perfect blend of emotions that kept me engaged from start to finish. But what made this movie stand out for me was its authenticity. It felt real, like the characters and their experiences were genuine and relatable," one more review read.

"Ending is So powerful, it changed my mindset Movie does feel rushed before interval, feels like movie ko 2hrs ka rakna tha toh kuch scenes direct cut kardiye Rajkumar Rao tussi great ho, Overall perfect Feel Good, Uplifting movie with family," read another one of the comments.
