Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...is quite the potboiler that fires in all directions in an attempt to entertain the audience. But with a weak storyline, too many twists and juvenile execution, it ends up being a missed opportunity.

  • Go for it if you're a die-hard Prabhas fan and like leave-your-brains-behind kind of action. Otherwise avoid.

  • ...suffers from a lackadaisical script and a vacuous screenplay.

    Critic rating (?)

  • When the writers know a film needs more than style, but are not quite sure how to make it happen.

  • If the idea behind watching Saaho is to witness the most expensive action thriller film out of India, then the amount of money thrown at every single frame is pretty evident, sometimes even unnecessarily. However, if you're planning to watch an enjoyable action film regardless of budget, that Netflix subscription is a pretty good investment to make use of.

  • ...hopes to achieve too many things but only ends up in a mangled mess.

  • ...of empty talk and pointless swagger.

  • Big budget mainstream cinema starring a super star is a regular process. But it’s highly appalling and unbelievable to have a 350 crore epic disaster which ends as an embarrassment to all concern.

  • ...may, like so many other shrill, gory actioners of the recent past, end up make pots of money. But that will not take away from the fact that it is egregiously turgid.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the makers got so carried away with crafting action scenes and Prabhas's starry presence that they forgot about the story and character development midway.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Everything a thriller needs is in here, and you settle down, fully prepared for a non-stop, breathless, firing-from-all-cylinders ride. But Saaho turns out to be a damp squib.

  • I know that a popcorn entertainer like Saaho isn’t driven by logic or coherence. And I would have made my peace with it if the film delivered a good time. My biggest complaint is that it’s a crashing bore.

  • ...isn’t stupid-smart – it’s smart-stupid.

    Critic rating (?)

  • They let loose on an eager audience merely set-pieces in quick succession, and so much random anth-shanth, akar-bakar, that it becomes impossible to saho (bear) Saaho, once you get closer to three hours.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...given the film’s tortuous, tangled plot involving compromised cops, many fake identities, umpteen car chases and dreary duels involving burly goondas of various ethnicities from East Europe and Africa, what stays with you is a sense of exhaustion, like after a long, wasted day.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • The impressively staged but ultimately exhausting action sequences take up the bulk of screen time, but they can’t salvage this soulless film that has all the depth and emotional wallop of a video game.

    Critic rating (?)

  • After nearly three excruciating hours of clueless chaos and random action between cops pretending to be crooks and crooks pretending to be cops, my spirit is clobbered and crippled.  I still have no idea what I just saw. 

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • A lot of it is very high tech and clearly very expensive. At the end of the day though, what we get is not a film but a little boy showing off his toys to his playmates.
