Technically Saaho is the best film I have been a part of: Neil Nitin Mukesh

Neil Nitin Mukesh was all praise for Saaho director Sujeeth in his comment on the latter's Instagram post. He wrote, “God bless you brother. You should be extremely proud of this Gem of a film. Technically it’s one of the best films that I have seen and been a part of. As an audience, I paid to see the film with my entire family just as all the lovely fans out there. And was NOT disappointed at all. It is easy to judge someone’s hard work and vision of so many years of countless hours. But it is another to stand strong and get it done. To commercially give your audience so many aspects all rolled into one is not an easy job. From great visuals to amazing performances and a layered plot with multiple characters is in itself a task. The twists and turns were very interesting and the scale of the action was par excellence. It was an honour to work with you and all at @uvcreationsofficial and hello … the fans have spoken.”

'So proud to have been a part of this mega project'

"So proud to have been a part of this mega project! ❤️💯 This one is one to add to the books!! 😍🙌 well done @sujeethsign @uvcreationsofficial @officialsaahomovie @actorprabhas @shraddhakapoor @neilnitinmukesh @chunkypanday @mandirabedi @jacquelinef143 @apnabhidu @arunvijayno1 @tseries.official and everyone else who was involved in making this a record breaking project to be remembered by Indians around the whole world 🙏💥 very special thanks to my team who made this project happen @sneha_savla1 @didooshruti @wipcreatives @ravina1610 @aadorem @srkapoor @exceedentertainment and loads of love to every single one of my awesome fans and supporters ❤️🙏," Evelyn Sharma said via Twitter.

Saaho received mixed reviews. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave it 1.5 stars and called it a 'damp squib.'

Shubhra wrote, "Prabhas is perfectly suited to throwing sharp things at tattooed guys built like trucks, and mowing down a phalanx of heavies without expending too much effort. And he does have an ability to underplay and be droll. What’s also nice is that his distinctly South Indian accent is not hidden in the dubbed version: our heroes are finally pan-Indian. When he is being easy and light are the only watchable moments in this mammoth enterprise. And also when Chunky Panday gets off a few good lines, and delivers them with the ease of a veteran."

"The rest, including the miscast Kapoor as a canny sleuthing cop, go by in a blur. Jackie Shroff is wasted in a brief cameo, and that’s a pity because he brings a loucheness to the table that no one else has," she added.
