Directed by Surender Reddy, the film hit the screens in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi.
At the pre-release event of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Chiranjeevi said, “We have truly made a pan-Indian film and I am confident of its success. The film is a tribute to freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of India.”
He added, “The story of Sye Raa is about this inspiring hero who rebelled against the British. It was so tempting that I didn’t want to miss the offer. It’s got a wonderful script too.”
Manoj Kumar R of indianexpress.com gave the film 2.5 stars in his review and wrote, “Surender resorting to overused methods to set up the 16th-century freedom is also uninspiring. And just when all hope was lost and you are on the verge of conceding defeat like the soldiers of Jhansi, something happens. Narasimha gets to work and starts beheading evil British colonisers. The fight paves way for the beginning of the end of the British Empire in India. Not soldiers but common people go to war against the colonisers. The British describe it as the “freedom struggle.”
He added, “However, I liked Surender’s attempt to underline the fact that freedom was achieved by hundreds of thousands of people’s selfless sacrifices cutting across class and religious lines.”
