Rediff - Radhika Rajamani's Rating: 2.5
Attarintiki Daredi is a stylish film, but it does not rise above being a routine family entertainer.
The Hindu - Sangeetha Devi Dundoo
Trivikram has tried balancing between offering a family entertainer and pleasing the fan clubs. The screenplay is wobbly at times and it's easy to see through the attempts to make up for it with comedy. A few lines make you cringe while most others are jolly good fun. The production is sleek and Prasad Murella's cinematography and Devi Sri Prasad's music fit the bill. If a refined mass-style entertainment is what you seek, this film is paisa vasool.
Times Of India - Ch Sushil Rao's Rating: 4
The movie is a worth watch. The reasons: Pawan Kalyan's comedy, fights composed by Peter Hein, Trivikram Srinivas' writing skills, Prasad Murella's cinematography, and Devi Sri Prasad's music.

Commercially, AD will open to mind blowing record opening collections. First and second weeks, there will be no stoppage. Right judgment on what is the exact BO target AD can reach will be decided only on how far family audience will become repeat audience and how far Ad will have a long run. As of now, Atharintiki Daaredi will lead the way for new Box Office records for sure.

AD is a treat for the family audience, a film that has got something for everyone.
Deccan Chronicle - Sandeep Atreysa's Rating: 1.5
The film appears to be made strictly for hardcore fans of Pawan Kalyan. For other movie-goers, this film appears merely to be high on style and low on content. Trivikram has joined the legion of directors who embraced T-town's masala-formula. If you are prepared to watch the film, go without any expectations.
Gulte - Rating: 4
Although the film has sentiment backdrop, Trivikram never lets it go in to emotional mode. Climax scene is a testament for Trivikram's ability as writer and director. This film will be lapped up by families and they will watch it repeatedly. Except for the audience who crave for mass masala, Attarintiki Daredi will entertain everybody. Films like these are very rare to come and don't miss the opportunity to watch it on big screen. Go grab your tickets, now!
