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
