Giving the film a “4.75/5” rating, one fan shared a picture from a film theatre and praised Prabhas' work. He wrote, “After watching #RadheShyam I am once again convinced that if there is anyone who can bring Indian cinema to the level of Hollywood and above its only and only #Prabhas darling. The way his charisma reflects on the screen is just magnificent I am stunned. Loved the film 4.75/5.”
Another fan shared a video from a movie theatre and tweeted, “#radheshyam leaving the theater with satisfaction.” Comparing the film to Prabhas' Baahubali, one fan wrote, “After Baahubali 2, #RadheShyam is the first Indian movie that actually looks and feels like a true epic. #Prabhas is a common factor in both.”
One person shared a video of himself talking about the film and gave it a zero rating. He wrote, “Zero stars for #RadheShyam. Please don't release every South film as a pan India movie. We do have a good opinion on South films but lately the dubbed films that have released have been disappointing apart from Pushpa. Just because we love you guys doesn't mean we accept trash.” Another social media user also drew a comparison between Pushpa and Radhe Shyam and tweeted, “#RadheShyam will not even collect half of what #Pushpa has collected in North.”
Film Critic Shiva Satyam gave Radhe Shyam zero stars and advised people to carry headache tablets if they are planning to watch the film. He wrote, “#RadheShyam #OneWordReview Unbearable.” I have taken 2 saridon so far & I still have severe headache. This is the most Terrible & Boring Film in last few year. Each & Everything is bad in this film. 0*/5. Advice: Keep 2-3 Saridon tablet before watching this film.”
Radhe Shyam is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Vamsi and Pramod. It was released in five languages: Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
Earlier, the film was slated to hit the theatres on January 14. However, it got postponed owing to the surge in Covid-19 cases and the uncertainty over the operations of cinema halls amid the pandemic.
Apart from Prabhas and Puja, the film also stars actors Sachin Khedekar, Priyadarshi Pulikonda, Bhagyashree, Jagapathi Babu, Murali Sharma, Kunaal Roy Kapoor, Riddhi Kumar, Sasha Chettri, and Sathyan. Actor Amitabh Bachchan turned narrator for the Hindi version of the film.
