Good first half with intense last 40 mins. Interval fight and dialogues #SyeRaaNarsimhaReddy #SyeRaa Movie prolongs for at least 20 mins before the climax shows up... but then #SyeRaa keeps us hooked for most of its run time. Many goosebumps moments. All characters shine. Technically brilliant. Over al, go celebrate mega star and #SyeRaaNarsimhaReddy on big screen. Wish Vijay sethupathi had got better character arc. #SyeRaa
