Salaar review live: Prabhas-starrer Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire, the big-budget Telugu action film is out now in theatres. The Prashanth Neel film released on Friday across the world and enthusiastic fans lined up outside cinema halls to catch the first day first show. Salaar is set in the fictional city of Khansaar and follows the story of Deva and Vardha, played by Prabhas and Prithviraj Sukumaran, respectively. It also stars Shruti Haasan, Eshwari Rao, Jagapathi Babu and Sriya Reddy. It will be released in five languages -- Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi....Read More

Salaar has received an A certification (Adults only) from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). About it, Neel said, “I was very disappointed. I know that I have not made a vulgar movie or a movie that is insensible with violence. The violence in the film is needed. I was disappointed, but Prabhas told me it’s okay. It was not designed for violence, but for drama and emotion.”

Prithviraj, known for films such as Lucifer and Ayyappanum Koshiyum, likened the upcoming film to American epic fantasy series Game of Thrones.

"I keep comparing 'Salaar' to 'Game of Thrones' because the drama is like... There are so many characters, plot points and intricate character dynamics. I don't know how he (the director) has fit the story into two parts. It's a tough thing to do," he said.

Salaar is expected to record an opening day collection of more than 48 crore.

Salaar review live: Sukumaran ‘surprised’ by script

Sukumaran said he was left surprised by Salaar's script. "I had different notions about what the film would be. I didn't expect it to be a story of two friends, their bonding, and what happens between them. That caught me by surprise.

"What drew me in was the drama. Despite all the spectacular fight sequences and huge sets, what pulls you in 'Salaar' is the drama. That drama, regardless of how big or small the film is or in which language the film is made, it works," the 41-year-old actor told PTI in an interview.

Film journalist Haricharan Pudipeddi shared his reaction to Salaar. “#Salaar at interval. Terrifically set up with one mega build up that takes all the time in the world to reach its explosive peak at the interval. Neel’s cinematic vision is what makes this a bigger epic than anything else. Great action set pieces too with solid use of slow-motion shots. Wish more focus was on Prabhas’s face as well in the action scenes. Camera kept hovering mostly on his body,” he wrote.

Salaar review live: ‘Thunderous’

Joginder Tuteja wrote on Twitter, "#Salaar - THUNDEROUS! ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 . This is #PrashantNeel universe all the way. You know the kind of cinema he makes with #KGF franchise and #Salaar belongs to the same set up. Violence violence violence - Of course there is a lot of that so you need the stomach to digest that. There is physical as well as emotional violence in this make believe world that has been created around a parallel no-man’s land which doesn’t fall under any country’s governance.

"#Prabhas does what’s expected out of him as it’s his towering personality that has been used to create a stunning impact. #PrithvirajSukumaran is an able performer and that shows again. #ShrutiHaasan is just there though. There are ton loads of supporting actors, as has been the case with #KGF films.

“The film is loud and for the lovers of such monumental action cinema, it works. The production by #HombaleFilms is grand and that goes with a film belonging to this genre. All in all, this one is a film which would appeal to those who like #KGF kind of set up.”
