Saaho starring Baahubali Prabhas and Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles will release worldwide this Friday (August 30). However, social media is already flooded with reactions and reviews by those who saw the movie beforehand. 

Film critics and distributors, who got a chance to watch Prabhas' high budget movie two days prior to its release, have given their mixed reviews. Unfortunately, Saaho has failed to impress a few of them.

Not just that, an Indian film distributor for Europe has given thumbs down to Saaho's Hindi dubbing. Many didn't like Shraddha's performance as well.

One of the film critics said, "#SaahoFeverEverywhere #Saahoreview #Saaho review:ALL ACTION AND NO MATTERthe film doesn’t have a strong story ..the screenplay is dead,no comedy,too much villains ,lengthy and boring ..WATCH IT ONLY FOR PRABHAS AND THE HEAVY ACTION SCENES  /5 #SaahoOnAugust30 @UV_Creations (sic)."

On the other hand, UAE Censor Board member Umair Sandhu watched Saaho at a screening, appreciated the entire crew for coming up with a commercial entertainer. Speaking highly of the film, Umair wrote, "First Review #Saaho from UAE Censor Board ! , if you are looking high-octane action scenes, sleek visuals, melodious music and if you love masala movies, then #SaahoOnAugust30 should definitely be your pick for weekend. #Prabhas is India Biggest STAR Now (sic)."

While some called the film incredibly thrilling, others said that it "grips you with interesting screenplay which gets muddled in between but races to the finish line with aplomb". Prabhas is being hailed for his performance. 

"Crazy storyline masked with breathtaking visuals & action," wrote a Twitter user. A UAE film journalist tweeted, "Prabhas makes absolutely no mistakes in getting his act together. There's no denying the fact that he plays the perfect pan India hero in this film. He can act effortlessly, fight in style and charm the audiences. Shraddha Kapoor looking Terrific (sic).”

Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor, who debuts in the south Indian film industry with Saaho, plays Amritha Nair, a crime branch officer who apparently accompanies Prabhas in his mission. The movie has many villains like Neil Nitin Mukesh, who is in search of a ‘black box' to open a locker, which has a billion dollars. Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey, Mahesh Manjrekar and Mandira Bedi also play antagonists in this big-budget flick.

Produced by UV Creations, the film's budget is estimated to be between Rs 250 crore to Rs 300 crore. The movie is produced by V Vamsi Krishna Reddy, Pramod Uppalapati and Bhushan Kumar. The big-budget flick has been in the making for over two years and has been shot simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The film will hit the theatres on August 30.
