A colossal waste of talent, big money and opportunity... Weak story, confusing screenplay and amateur direction. 👎👎👎 #SaahoReview

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Overall, Saaho attempts at being a potboiler that fires in all directions to entertain the audience. There are so many twists and turns that it leaves you more exhausted than excited.

Prabhas no doubt has the charisma and the swagger to make Saaho likeable. He plays it with enough gravitas to make us want to believe in him, but the script and action sequences are tailored to elicit jeers (or looks of horror/disbelief). At this point we need to acknowledge that certain sections of the audience were having a ball, cheering on their superstar and whistling and applauding his every move. Such fandom indeed is the only redeeming factor that can salvage this movie. Prabhas owes his fans big time if Saaho ends up creating any sort of record at the box office.

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Saaho, surely delivers well as an action extravaganza with a climax that compensates for its many flaws. The film's second half picks pace, but is marred by a weak narrative that requires constant suspension of disbelief. Also, the special effects and CGI often lack the finesse that a film mounted on such a grand scale deserved.

Rating Score -> 2/5
Overall, Saaho is stylishly made, but incredibly dull fare. The making reflects a pan-India approach, but sensibilities and content are neither here and nor there. A rich camouflage can never conceal the inherent hollowness. Saaho is a prime example. If you are a fan, you might want to check out to watch the hero on the big screen after a long gap. But, beyond that, there is no other reason to recommend a theatre visit.

Rating Score -> 2/5
Saaho packs the chest-thumping bravado distinct of South Indian action thrillers. The henchmen don’t just collapse on receiving the blows, they first inform their villain bosses that the blood on the hero’s face is actually theirs, before
dropping to the ground. After all, it’s not about the heavy artillery, the choppers and jet packs. When the hero wipes the sweat off his forehead and flicks it on his assailant, he has managed to injure his soul.

Rating Score -> 2/5
Sujeeth's Saaho, made on a lavish budget of Rs 350 crore, is a big dumb action movie that strains to fulfill every adjective describing the genre. Big? Check. Dumb? VERY. Action? You can see where the money went (not on the writing, no).

Rating Score -> 3/5
Overall, Saaho is a missed opportunity for director Sujeeth who failed despite getting a perfect technical team, talented actors and massive investment.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
Saaho had promise. It had the cast. That's the disappointing part. Yet, 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.

Rating Score -> 2/5
Prabhas tries to shoulder Saaho single-handedly, and he manages to keep it afloat as much as possible. But there are some portions – especially in the first half - that are so flat that even he can’t save the film. Saaho, in short, ends up as a film that never quite makes the intended impact in spite showing promise.

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Unfortunately, despite its glitzy packaging, Saaho, because of a choppy, underwritten screenplay and excessive gorefest is a bit of a letdown even for those who love their Hindi movies served with a generous dose of masala. Sigh.

Rating Score -> 2/5
While the action sequences set in Abu Dhabi, choreographed by Kenny Bates and the set designs by Sabu Cyril, are impressive, there’s little else going on for Saaho. Even a shirtless Prabhas gliding down a mountain like a superhero with gleaming torsos is a sight to behold, there’s no strong landing here. Watch this at your own risk.

Rating Score -> N/A
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. A lot of hard work has gone into creating the action and the extravagant sets. The budget is a reported 350 crores but for the viewer there’s little bang for the buck.

Rating Score -> N/A
On the whole, Saaho is a soulless film which bores more than it entertains. It has superb action but also a boring and confusing script. It will, therefore, not find appreciation commensurate with its investment and canvas. It will go down in history as a film which had a huge budget but, perhaps, none for the script. After a fantastic opening day and, therefore, a fairly good first weekend, its collections will come crashing down so badly from Tuesday (after Ganesh Chaturthi holiday on Monday) that it will soon be forgotten as a dismal fare.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
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.

16. The Week -

Rating Score -> 2/5
The biggest achievement of Saaho is that it opened Telugu cinema to a pan-India market and elevated the star status of Prabhas The Rs 350-crore movie’s success lies more in the hype generated in the run-up to the release and for getting one of the biggest releases in the country. The finished product may not entirely do justice to the expectations of many. Saaho, released in four different languages, strictly falls in ‘action’ category and like most hardcore action movies, is devoid of much logic and is far removed from reality.

    2. Prabhas is nobody is Bollywood? What the crap statement was that??? Is any Bollywood star somebody in South?
      Reviewing movie is fine but avoid such idiotic statements.

    2. Even Saaho will do no less than 375 Crore all India net but that doesn't mean it is a good film. Salman's bodyguard was the 1st movie to do 100 Crores in Week 1 but, today his fans wouldn't be proud of having watched it.

  10. Initially I thought it was only Bollywood critics who were tearing down the movie bit, after doing google search, I saw that Telugu critics were the harshest. The director is being blamed left, right, & center by everyone. I have my doubts with regard to Hrithik & Tiger's WAR too. That movie too seems like too much money has been put just to make lead actors look good. These kind of over the top glossy movies don't have good shelf life anyway. The actors mutter too much hinglish for mass audiences to understand properly. Multiplex audiences will lap it for a while & then shelve it.

  11. Watched SAAHO today with 100% accupancy. No doubt first half is dull but from last 15-20 minutes before interval to the end, there is no stoppage, It is a treat for all Prabhas fans. His screen presence, acting all are charming. People's response in the hall was also very exciting.
