Two Babies Switched at Birth
Uriah4320 February 2021
This film begins in a hospital where two women are simultaneously giving birth. As it so happens, one of the women is married to an extremely successful businessman named "Ramachandra" (Jayaram) while the other woman is married to one of Ramachandra's employees by the name of "Valmiki" (Murli Sharma). Although both babies are male, the nurse notices that the one belonging to Ramachandra is not breathing and begins to panic under the assumption that she will be held responsible for the child's death. It's at this precise time that Valmiki intervenes and tells her to substitute his son for that of Ramachandra's with the expectation that he will have a much better life. The nurse hesitates at first and when she eventually acquiesces it is discovered that Ramachandra's baby is not dead after all. Regardless, Valmiki is determined to maintain the deception and after a scuffle the nurse is seriously injured to the point that she cannot prevent Valmiki from going through with his fraudulent scheme. Eventually, both children grow up with the Ramachandra's actual child, "Bantu" (Allu Arjun) possessing superior talents while Valmiki's child "Raj Manohar" (Sushanth) is rather slow and dim-witted. Even so, Raj Manohar is given all of the benefits a wealthy father can bestow upon him while Bantu is continuously scorned by Valmiki. However, things become quite interesting once the paths of Ramachandra and Bantu finally cross. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this film started off as an extremely enjoyable comedy but slowed down around the middle part of the movie when the plot turned a bit more serious. As far as the actors are concerned, I liked the performances of both Allu Arjun and Jayaram but not so much that of Murli Sharma who seemed a bit over-the-top. In any case, I enjoyed this film for the most part and I have rated it accordingly. Above average.

Good Movie. Nobody acted well in the movie. The movie was somewhat interesting and thrilling. The movie had a good story but presented in a boring way. The movie could have been more better. Good Movie.

Festive action entertainer for all!
Prashast_Singh20 January 2020
I finally got to see this film today in cinemas, with English subtitles. And I was gripped till the end. This is a purely entertaining action drama! It's got action, emotion, comedy, music and a fresh story that is far from cliches. Allu Arjun is really charming in this one, and plays his mass hero role with brilliance.

AVPL is a film that is long but doesn't feel like one. Rather, it has to be the shortest less-than-three-hours film I've ever seen. Kudos to Trivikram and team for giving us a true Sankranthi blockbuster. Every actor has something special to do including Pooja Hegde, Tabu, Jayaram, Samuthirakani etc but Murli Sharma really comes across as one of the most impressive performers in this film. Also, the music is melodious, cinematography is splendid and editing is top notch.

The action sequences are brilliant and one of the major highlights. I loved each and every action scene in the film, especially the one in the climax: it felt pretty experimental in its own way. If you like Allu Arjun in action, this is just another cool actioner to check out! The emotional scenes register a deep impact and Trivikram deserves praise once again for ending the film in a practical and fresh manner.

If you still haven't seen AVPL, go check it out before it goes out of cinemas. It's undoubtedly a blockbuster and a superb action drama that has something for every type of viewer. Let's hope no other film industry even thinks of remaking this gem, not even Bollywood.

Usual telugu family commercial
saru202019 January 2020
Telugu cinema and its audiences are going no-where, they all want to have the same old food each & every day with tweaks here & there, they simply seem to be averse to drastic changes. This film also comes with the same old story with no big changes in the screenplay too but the making seemed a little bit fresh since they removed many details like adding effects & build-ups to each & every scene after & before the hero comes. People have started to watch Allu Arjun movies just to watch him dance and nothing else.

Fate cannot be changed!!
sriramthestranger29 February 2020
Director Trivikram takes us right away into the plot from scene 1. Two lives swapped during their birth and the consequences that follow make up this movie. But the plot after 1st half follows usual route of 'hero fixing his family issues as an external agent' seen in countless other Telugu family drama movie. Eventually, that makes this film a dull one. Thaman's music is brilliant and choreographed brilliantly supported by Allu Arjun's moves. A good, not so boring watch in Netflix!!

Good enough for a one time watch.
rish200615 May 2021
It had the potential of being a brilliant movie. The 1st half was awesome and will make you believe it to be a promising movie. But, the 2nd half was pretty disappointing as it ended up becoming like a typical family drama tv serial with the story being dragged.

Very artificial
rohit_vit202011 July 2020
Not liked much. Very artificial family scenes, no sentimental. Very artificial acting of Allu Arjun. Bad dance from Allu arjun, he is no more energetic in this movie.

Nice Comeback For Allu Arjun
varun-2507199718 January 2020
Trivikram and Allu Arjun deliver us a successful commercial entertainer again in their 3rd collaboration again. Only drawbacks are a forced scene which glorifies TFI actors with excess hero worship and a terrible understanding of class issues.

A Masala film that works because of its screenplay and Allu Arjun.
Fighter_Ned28 February 2020
What's good: 1. It is a highly entertaining masala film. 2. The screenplay of the film is good. 3. Allu Arjun carries the film on his shoulders and Murali Sharma gives a good support. What's bad: 1. The story has nothing new and isn't logical. 2. A talent like Tabu is wasted. You feel like a sword is being used to cut vegetables when you see Tabu in this role. Overall you will like the film if you like masala films and Allu Arjun.

Sumptuous Full meals with Banana and Beeda
ksr-918221 March 2020
First time watched Allu Arjun movie. His father Allu Arvind is clever and crafty person and ensured right mix. Director served it well. If I recall the last mass entertainer one can recall is Amar Akbar Anthony. After that this is next best. Like Amitabh , Allu Arjun carried this film on his shoulders with help of music of Thaman and Trivikram. I was rating at 8 but cant help adding 9th one Allu Arjun for his style, timing and presence. He is next in line of Rajini and Chiranjeevi.

One man army!
jithin-m1 May 2020
Another jaw dropper from Allu. Don't know what all to express here. Beginning got me down a bit as we all been through this story of evil mind (not disclosing). But the way plot flipped made me wonder of Allu's strong delivery skills. This movie turned out to be a complete engagement game right till the end, although few places did not make much sense in the real world, but from fun standpoint, it does make sense 😉 Murli was way too fantastic in supporting. Allu single handedly got this rolled on entirely if you see. Great songs.

All Time Industry Hit and Highest Grossing Film in Allu Arjun Career
rosheenkan20 June 2021
Thanks to Trivikam direction, Thaman music and Allu Arjun performance, the film became a huge success and Allu Arjun highest grossing film in his career. It also have well-packaged family entertainer that wins hearts. It can also consider as undoubtedly one of Trivikram's better films in recent years. So, the film is a must watch.

Action Comedy Flick with Drama
arjuncshekartheofficial17 August 2020
Trivikram Srinivas worked hard really for this movie, that's appreciable. He blended Comedy, Action and Drama Drama very well in this movie. The highlight of the movie is acting of Sachin Khedekar, Sunil, Allu Arjun, Tabu and Murli Sharma. Pooja Hegde's acting slightly improved in this movie, Samuthikarani as Appall Naidu steals the show. We enjoyed this movie a lot.

Offensive premise!
india-amu2510 May 2020
Warning: Spoilers
Although the acting and comedy are good, the movie's premise is extremely offensive. To cast poor people as poor in heart and rich people as rich in heart is a disgusting plotline and sends a wrong message to people who strive everyday to make ends meet. I am truly disappointed!
