Avuku Raja and Raja Paandi join him. Together, they start finishing the enemies. What happened to Narasimha Reddy after the rebellion? Watch the film to know the rest.

Star Performance

Amitabh has done a guest appearance, yet he is impressive. Chiranjeevi has put his heart and soul to the movie. This is one of his best performances. Tamannaah and Nayan did their best in the given screen time. Sudeep impresses a lot and his combination scenes with Chiru are fantastic. Vijay Sethupathi has done his part naturally.


Although the film is based on the life incidents of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, the team had taken the cinematic liberties. The action sequences are fantastically shot. Though they are unreal, they impress the audience. The screenplay and narration are not much impressive. The film is technically sound and the production values are excellent. We could enjoy it as a film, but not feel the real patriotism. The songs and the BGM have come out well. The VFX team should be appreciated for some fantastic visuals. O Sye Raa song is super good. The run time should have been minimized at least by 15 minutes. Yes, it is very lengthy.

What’s There?

  • Huge star cast is a big plus
  • Performance of the stars are fantastic
  • Cinematography and the music are excellent

What’s Not There?

  • Run time is the biggest minus point
  • Screenplay and execution could have been better


Although it is not natural and has come with a lot of cinematic elements, Sye Raa is definitely a good film to watch. Good effort by the team Sye Raa!
