OneIndia - Rating: 3
Yevadu is a good action entertainer with all other commercial ingredients. Ram Charan Teja is the showman in the film. The engrossing screenplay and rich production values are the big assets of the movie.
The Hindu - Review
The film could do well at the box office provided you ignore the non-stop, prolonged revenge sequences. Devi Sri Prasad's background score and editing are assets, cinematography is equally good. With no big films in sight the coming week, this one, tailored for the mass, should set the cash registers ringing.
The Times Of India - Rating: 3
It's loaded with high decibel screaming and sounds of human bodies being bashed to pulp, so those with sensitive eardrums might want to carry protection.
Indiaglitz - Rating: 3
A formulaic story with a small attraction attached to it, Yevadu works fine for its target audiences (read B and C center ones). That Vamsi Paidipally is another director who rehashes the time-tested formula is clear when one witnesses a few regular elements in the second half (ironically, this is the film's better half).
Idlebrain - Rating: 3.25
Yevadu is a film that has all ingredients to work at Box Office this Sankranthi!. The plus points of film are Ram Charan's performance, commercial screenplay that has an inherent factor that arouses curiosity and director's ability to handle mass and family emotions. Read more in the slideshow.

Yevadu's basic idea was borrowed from Face Off. It is not right to dig more into this as it may give away few key twists and turns in the film. Idea is good but there are some logical errors that may puzzle you if you keep your thinking cap on. Although Yevadu has a novel plot the treatment of the film is very routine.
BharatStudent - Rating: 3
It is just a routine commercial entertainer with overdose of action. The first half goes about with few elements of action, romance and some comedy but the interval bang was very good. The second half had a lag and eventually it picks up. Overall, the film doesn't have anything great to offer but at the same time it has enough to entertain mega fans and masses.

Yevadu is all about Ram Charan's electrifying performance. Though this film has many routine scenes, you can still give it a shot this festive season.
Cinejosh - Rating: 3
Yevadu is entirely a commercial package designed exclusively for Mega Fans. For a stale out product, if Dil Raju promotes on right pitch, definitely there is a safe product on-hand.
CineForest - Rating: 3.5
It is a Mass Masala Entertainer. Positives are Allu Arjun and Kajal Agarwal role. Ram Charan's performance in the action sequences is too good.
TeluguMirchi - Rating: 3.5
It is absolutely not a classic, neither a mind blowing movie nor something very unique. It is just a commercial movie. Watch it and enjoy.
Myfirstshow - Rating: 3
Vamsi Paidipally chose a routine mass entertainer but included a small twist inspired from Hollywood flick Face Off. Entire film is fast paced with gripping action. While the first half with suspense element and Brahmanandam, Ram Charan, Amy Jackson comedy passed off quite well, second half became predictable after the interval bang. Interval bang is good.Entire film is marred with violence and Yevadu is a complete bloodbath on silver screen. Filmmakers could have avoided them.

First half of the film is okay, not many dragging episodes and second half picks the pace to adds in some mass - powerful scenes. Yevadu has obviously been made to cater to its target audience, those who don't care about logic and are looking for nothing less than pakka entertainment. If your idea of a movie goes along those lines, watch it!

It is absolutely not a classic, neither a mind blowing movie nor something very unique. It is just a commercial movie. Yevadu is going to be a hit at B & C centers as it had all the required masala for fans with excellent action episodes but may not work well for A centers audience!

Yevadu is all about up and downs. First half is good and second half is ok. At last, this film has many routine scenes but meag fans are happy with the performance of Ramcharan. General movie lovers will watch once.
Tollywoodandhra - Rating: 3
Yevadu goes in the similar lines of Ram Charan's earlier movies, Racha and Nayak. You can not term it as good or bad. It is like you do not find any thing novel point to appreciate. The story just goes on like 100s of revenge dramas earlier in Telugu. But with 1: Nenokkadine completely biting the dust, the movie is expected to make a merry at the box office for Sankranthi.
Cineoutlook - Rating: 3
The first half of the movie completely runs fast forwarded and second half will be dragged. This movie is the concept of Face Off English movie. Villain will be killed before interval clearly says that there is another main villain and it will be dragged on Ram Charan's story that didn't surprise anyone before interval. Movie has been dragged a little bit in the second half.
SupergoodMovies - Rating: 3
Yevadu takes off with cameos of Allu Arjun and Kajal Agarwal which is much interesting plot not to miss in the first half. Story narration is good for the first 15 minutes and later the plot is much predictable and also lacks the pace. Few interesting twists, entertaining comedy and romance worked out well. Interval is good with action sequence and a twist.
Way2movies - Rating: 3
Despite the novel storyline, Vamsi Paidipally made Yevadu a safe project with tried and tested formula, unique plot in commercial format. Yevadu has gripping screenplay yet routine treatment. The main asset of the film is the cast performances be it the leads or supporting cast like Sai Kumar, Jayasudha are perfect.
EenaduCinema - Rating: 3
Yevadu is a decent mass masala entertainer with unique plot. This film will score big in B and C centers in particular for its commercial content. Yevadu - A massive Pongal treat for Mega fans and masses.
Greatandhra - Rating: 3
Vamsi Paidipalli cooked a dish comprising the best ingredients taken from previous super hit films of other directors. He took an element from Journey, a line from Vikramarkudu, an emotion from Chatrapathi and an idea from Hollywood flick Face Off. He should be appreciated for making the dish palatable at least for a set of audience. Yes, the film goes well with the masala fiction lovers.
Telugucinema - Rating: 3
Yevadu provides novelty in the beginning episodes promising a different commercial film but ends up as a regular revenge drama. Has many clichéd moments but it is also a film that works to some extent. A masala fare.
Andhrawishesh - Rating: 3
Yevadu is decent movie with interesting twists but a better climax would have been a great result for the movie. Yevadu will definitely appeal to fans and the general audiences are recommended for a one time watch.
AndhraHeadlines - Rating: 2.25
Yevadu takes off with an interesting scenes and drama peaks with the killings of Kajal and Allu Arjun. The story appears to be different with Allu Arjun survives the brutal attack gets a new face of Ram Charan. Everyone think at this point the movie as scientific action thriller. But, director poured water on their hopes by making it a simple revenge drama except protagonist taking revenge with a new face in first half and taking the position of dead person in the second half. The entire film runs and ends with a predictable note.
The movie starts off in a remarkable mode. half is alright. half has pretty sensible emotional parts with the Jayasudha (family emotions) and Sai Kumar (mass emotions). The and points of film square measure Ram Charan's performance, business script that has associate degree inherent issue that arouses curiosity and director's ability to handle mass and family emotions.
Chitramala - Rating: 3
Two different stories: one interesting other boring overall an above average grosser.
FilmCircle - Rating: 2.75
I have no doubt about commercial success of Yevadu. Yevadu is a feast for hardcore mass fans of Ram Charan who earlier embraced films like Racha and Naayak.
Business Of Tollywood - Rating: 3
Yevadu is an action entertainer with a revenge story and many scenes in the movie are predictable. Director maintained the tempo in the movie till end. The entertainment and comedy are also good. It has all the ingredients which are expected by a Tollywood audience.
Desimartini – Ratings: 2.5
Yevadu has an engrossing screenplay that sukcs you in. Some fine connectors and edge-of-the-seat moments frequently press the ejector button on your seats. However, it slips into the rut of a regular revenge drama that bleeds of banalities.
