Iddarammayilatho fresh love story with revenge quantity in good percent , Although Puri Jagannath penned complex story with not so perfect screenplay but extracted excellent performances from actors. The most important part for any film’s success is entertainment, which is missing a badly in the film. The film lacks Puri’s typical punch dialogues, Few Dialogues especially for Pawan & Chiru are treat for fans.

In terms of direction and character treatment, you will see a very different Puri Jagan in this movie. This Puri is more sober and mature. Is that a good thing for his fans? I am not very sure. Some people succeed most when they are bold and aggressive. Puri is one such guy.

Its total Mass movie with perfect mix of humor/dialogue delivery as well as you will most definitely enjoy it with family and the twist in this movie would be revealed just 30 minutes before THE END!

The movie can be seen and enjoyed if one doesn't go with a lot of expectations like- Bunny’s film under Puri’s direction with Brahmanandam and Ali to fill the comedy parts and a high budget movie that show richness etc.etc. If one watches the movie without comparing with Puri’s or Bunny’s films and simply go with the way it is presented

Allu Arjun has proved himself yet again. He has succeeded in making the character believable and very honest. He has given heroism a very subtle and very natural feel. Action from Allu Arjun was definitely impressive. He did a very good job at coming up with a innovative technique to bash up the bad guys.

The problem of lacking finesse continues here too but this time he has got a predictable story barring a small twist during the second half. The film relies completely on his screenplay and the director does a decent job with it. First half of the film has little story progress but its breezy nature makes it a decent watch. Interval block has been done neatly.

Iddarammayilatho is definitely a good movie to watch. The movie gets a lot more interesting in the second half. The climax definatly lets the viewers go home happy.

'Iddarammayilatho' is a very stylish offering from Puri Jagan. Allu Arjun’s performance, Catherine’s glamour and the action sequences are assets for the film.

It’s a strictly A Class center movie, Allu Arjun career the entire movie on his shoulders, He improved a lot in the sense of acting. First half was too slow and second half though picked up pace, was stuffed with excess violence. Lack of comedy and over violence may shun away family viewers. Over expectation on Puri’s directions makes audiences bit disappointment in this time. This is one time watcher film.

Though he tried his best to keep viewers interested in the film tempo was too slow some times testing the patience of viewers. First half was too slow and second half though picked up pace, was stuffed with excess violence. Lack of comedy and over violence may shun away family viewers.However Bunny's dances are treat to watch. A little bit of trimming here and there along with soring out some screenplay and direction issues, the film would have been a super hit.

Overall an average entertainer.Can watch once with low expectations.One should say,this is a complete different movie from the routine Puri movies.But should wait and see how the audience will receive it.Puri himself seems to have done a bit experiment with the script.Audience reception in the coming days decides the fate of this movie.

First half of the film is entertaining. The beginning of second half meanders due to lack of story (all time-pass scenes like Brahmanandam-Ali are inserted). Movie has an interesting twist towards the climax. Plus points are Allu Arjun, Iddarammayilu (Amala Paul & Catherin), Puri’s dialogues and technical aspects. On the flipside, emotions didn't work.

The story is a routine one and Puri Jagannath failed to make it interesting. Infact he spoiled the script with poor screenplay and direction. First half is slow as he took lot of time in introducing and establishing characters. Still it is watchable.

'Iddarammayilatho' is a very stylish offering from Puri Jagan. Allu Arjun’s performance, Catherine’s glamour and the action sequences are assets for the film. Slow pace in the second half and the absence of traditional Puri Jagan elements like heroism and punch dialogues might hamper the overall experience.

It's stylishly shot but ends up feeling like an incredibly well garnished dish that's got a key ingredient missing. Unless you are a die hard Allu Arjun fan, you'll struggle to see the bright side of this one.
Rating: 3.0/5
Iddarammayilatho story has nothing new to offer. The only thing that counts in this picture is highly technical standards and Allu Arjun's stylish avatar. Director Puri Jagannadh has missed many key points which make the plot inconvincible. Unlike Puri's previous movies, Iddarammailatho lacks Puri's punch dialogs and comedy scenes by Brahmanandam and Ali are unbearable.

Though the film is a hit, it can’t compete with films even like ‘Julayi’ of his own of Allu Arjun.

Music and background score by Devi Sree Prasad are a major asset to the film. Another thing that needs to mention for sure are the fights in the film composed by Keecha. They have come out very well and helped the film separate from the rest of such routine films.

Iddarammayilatho movie opens on an interesting note with Rao Ramesh’s satire on media. Catherine leaves for Spain where she meets Allu Arjun and the first song has been choreographed well. Director Puri Jagannath handled the parallel stories in a convincing way throughout the first. Watching Iddarammayilatho for Lead Actor’s performances and Puri Jagannath’s dialogues.

Iddarammayilatho premise is not new. This film's story is similar to that of Ghajini with a twist in the tale. Screenplay is smooth in first half. Except for the fight scene before interval nothing is exciting. Second half is a damp squib. Only Top Lesipoddi infuses some energy and barring that it is just a big big yawn.

Puri has once again shown his affection for Reddys in the movie. Besides to that there is a lengthy dialogue on caste feeling. Besides to these Bunny, Puri and Ganesh danced for topulechipoddi song after the end title, as if they have achieved some great thing. They even sent warning that second part is coming.

Overall, this is a film which has not really been shaped up with that kind of punch. At the box office, this will be a below average treat.

Rating: 2.5/5
Like every film of Puri, even this one relies more on engaging screenplay. Unfortunately, strong dialogue punches and magic around Puri’s brand misses here. Subject wise, this is an age old revenge drama mixed with action. But, Puri starts his execution from a new end with new backdrop of Spain to engage our attention 1st Half Style Tho – 2nd Half Headache Tho.

Iddarammayilatho hits you like fresh air, and you instantly fall for the lead characters, refreshingly flesh-and-blood with their set of quirks, flaws and strengths.One more hurry-burry execution of Puri Jagannadh. One time watcher. Might still fare at box office due to no major flicks before and after.

oming to analysis most of the movie is located in foreign locations. Our Stylish star Allu Arjun is really stylish here. He is superlative in the movie. His costumes are really superb. Coming to dance sequences great. Allu Arjun has performed to a certain extent realistically in the action sequences here in the movie. Definitely everyone feel that. Amala Paul, Catherine Tresa is good at their roles in the entire movie. The first of the movie is almost ok in every area. But the tempo of the movie is a bit slow in the second half of the movie.

Somewhat incomplete, somewhere dissatisfaction…some emptiness…that’s the feel of ‘Iddaramayilatho’.The visuals are great and so are the making values. Songs and fights are also good. Hero carrying the film on his shoulders is seen but overall the film doesn’t satisfy. The reason for that is weak script, there is no strength in the subject.
PostNoon
Rating: 2.5/5
Beyond the slick cinematography and the overall style quotient, the film has no meat, especially in the second half. Puri Jagannadh seems to have clearly run out of ideas by the time he comes to the end of first half. The dialogues do have a distinct Puri Jagannadh’s trademark, but this is not even a patch on what Puri has managed to achieve in the past. If only, the film’s screenplay was as good as its style, it wouldn’t have been this boring.

‘Iddarammayilatho’ is a beautiful and stylish movie of Allu Arjun and Puri Jagannath. Definitely it is a worthy watch.

Let’s start with title of the movie 'Iddarammayilatho' there is zero chemistry between Allu Arjun- Catherine Tresa- Amala Paul throughout the movie. In fact it’s not a love story but a revenge taking movie plot, story plays key role in dragging movie. It's really hard to decide into which genre Iddarammayilatho goes into.
AndhraHeadlines
Rating: 2.25/5
‘Iddarammayilato’ is a romantic love story which turns into a revenge drama. The screenplay of the movie is so bad that it will not appeal to either romance genre audience or action genre audience. Puri has to slow down his pace and concentrate on his screenplay technique. It is better for him to start the next movie with a bound script rather than starting the movie and banging the head for ideas.
Chitramala
Rating: 2.0/5
The film moves between the present and the Komali flashbacks and when it was time to somehow fit in the mafia into all of this, it took some over-elaborate moves, then again, when did over-elaboration ever bother them?The pun of the dialogue was occasionally on the money, but, the protagonist having to deal with our version of the modern musician who uses instruments either to smash heads or to finish the costume is a lot to deal with.

Rating: 2.0/5
Puri's films have begun to deteriorate with time and having seen "Iddarammayilatho", we wish his worst days are over and hope to see a better film soon. It's painful to believe that someone who was lauded for making a slick crime-thriller such as "Pokkiri" has resorted to making films that are neither entertaining nor commercially plausible.

The over-all seem with the flick is extremely fresh. Heavy brave dialogues who have this propensity in order to think about the audience straight down is usually forgiven and also organic in addition to simple dialogues in addition to behaving is really a breath of air connected with ticket inside the flick

Iddarammayilatho hits you like fresh air, and you instantly fall for the lead characters, refreshingly flesh-and-blood with their set of quirks, flaws and strengths. the first half does ramble a bit and takes time to build up into a riveting half. However, too much cinematic liberties and slow paced narration are taken in the half, which makes the film uninteresting. Also, the film lacks Puri’s typical punch dialogues that heroes generally utter…
FilmCircle
Rating: --
It is not that typical Allu Arjun's or Puri's movie. Even though the masala is not there, Bunny's fans will love to watch him in a different avatar. Finally, the conclusion is 'Iddarammayilatho' is a classic-romantic movie which would be loved by Bunny's fans.
The Hindu

Iddarammayilatho is a commercial cocktail that packs in a bit of romance, laughter, mystery, greed and crime. It crawls at a snail’s pace in certain portions while it entertains when you least expect it to. A fair amount of mystery sustains the interest till the end
