Salaar Critic Reviews & Ratings

It's a film that will entertain and impress with its scale, but might require some patience in the initial stages.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-2.5/5
The mind-numbing power of unrelenting violence is on full display over all of three hours in the unabashedly gory Salaar: Part 1 - Ceasefire

  • The Hindu | Review By - Sangeetha Devi Dundoo | Rating-NA
Prashanth Neel’s ‘Salaar: Part 1: Ceasefire’ is an unabashed celebration of the stardom of Prabhas and plays to the gallery for mass action lovers.

Most of part one is eye-glazing enough, making you numb to the murder and mayhem: all noise, meaning very little.

  • News 18 | Review By - Sonil Dedhia | Rating-2.5/5
Overall, Salaar is only for Prabhas fans and for those who feel an assault on the senses is a form of cinema.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-NA
Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire is a bombastic, bottom-punishing hackathon that begins in the 1980s and continues into the recent past but appears to be taking place centuries ago.

Second half does go slightly downhill, appears a tad stretched with some complex scenes, which could have been easily edited to bring down the runtime by at least 20 minutes.

'Salaar: Part 1 - Ceasefire' is a mass masala action entertainer that celebrates Prabhas's stardom.

  • Rediff | Review By - Mayur Sanap | Rating-3/5
Prashanth Neel ups the ante on all of the formulaic elements from KGF, instilling them with more ambition and technical dazzle that sustain his bonkers vision.

it is worth a watch for hardcore fans of Prabhas and those who crave action flicks.

  • Mint | Review By - Uday Bhatia | Rating-NA
It’s a disappointing thing for Neel to thread through his film, and does nothing to alter the image of Telugu action as India’s Neanderthal cinema.

  • Quint | Review By - Pratikshya Mishra | Rating-2.5/5
As it stands, it's good enough to wonder what the second part will bring. Despite its flaws, I'll be tuning in for part 2.

  • | Review By - Aditya | Rating-4/5
The movie, even with its repetitive feel, is quite engaging and evokes the audience interest, and should be satisfying to almost everyone who watches this in the theatres, particularly Prabhas' fans, they simply shouldn't miss this film.

  • 123Telugu | Review By - 123Telugu | Rating-3.25/5
If you are a fan of Prabhas or enjoy high-octane action-packed movies, Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire is worth a watch this weekend.

Overall, Salaar is a treat for Prabhas fans because the actor hasn't looked this good since Baahubali 2, and the heroism-elevation sequences work well.

On the whole, SALAAR: PART 1 – CEASEFIRE boasts of whistle-worthy moments that will be loved by the masses.
