#RamayyaVastavayya 1st half is over. All NTR needs is the right director. NTR reinvents his image as class/mass/youth/family star. Harish understands heroes so well that he makes the best presentation of their strengths. 1st half is very good with a nice interval block.

NTR's Is rocking in Intro song Pandaga chesko...Look kuda adurs...Best till date #RamayyaVastavayya 1st Half is Good and Entertaining...Credits to for showcasing NTR with different variations A Better 2nd Half of #RamayyaVastavayya would have taken the movie to next level...liked NTR performance in the film :)

Ramayya Vastavayya: Typical revenge drama. First half is breezy but second half (esp.climax sequence) is total letdown. Liked NTR. In scenes involving him, Samantha and Rohini Hattangadi, he was hilarious.

Pandaga Chesko.... NTR's best dance moves in a long long time... babu moonwalk chesadu :) No one has showcased NTR in such a stylish and youthful way until now...This is @harish2you 's biggest achievement.

I enjoyed #RamayyaVastavayya !! Loved the 2nd half. Yes 2nd half. NTR.Jr nailed it to bits !! what an actor. But routine story line. 3.25/5 first fight was really composed really well heroism Baga chupichadu Pandga chesuko song is really feast for fans.
#RamayyaVastavayya is an average fare......high points being jr ntr in 1st half and the ilairaja background songs....nothing apart from that Harish Shankar disappoints as a writer primarily......no patch on his writing in gabbar singh.......thaman music and bgm not upto the mark

#RamayyaVastavayya start was bad But TIGER covered it with his entry and dialogue delivery.
Haricharan Pudipeddi @pudiharicharan
#RamayyaVastavayya a hero-worshipping, fan-appealing film that gets almost everything in the book of filmmaking wrong.
