TELUGU SWAG RATING:
TELUGU 360 (Rating: 2.75/5):
Dasara is an average film with raw scenes and an authentic setup. Hero Nani’s outstanding natural performance, Debutante director Srikanth’s spark in some scenes, and action blocks compensate for the slow proceedings to an extent. The second half is a slow-paced one and tests patience here and there. Overall, a decent watch.
Great Andhra (Rating: 2.75/5):
Overall, “Dasara” is a regular revenge drama that relies more on visual style and grand making than the plot. It is watchable because of its ambition and Nani’s performance.
Mirchi9 (Rating: 3/5):
Overall, Dasara offers terrific visuals and performances that make it worth a watch. If you like raw and rustic dramas and don’t mind the pace and predictability, go ahead with Dasara.
123TELUGU (Rating: 3.25/5):
On the whole, Dasara is a gritty action drama that has Nani’s outstanding performance. He shouldered the film all the way. Keerthy Suresh, Dheekshith Shetty and Shine Tom Chacko also performed well. The film is quite good technically. Barring a few laggy portions in the second half, the film is a perfect choice to enjoy the weekend.
Times Of India (Rating: 3/5):
Dasara is not the film that leaves you with a smile at the end of it all, it also doesn’t reinvent the wheel. Could it have been better? Sure. But Srikanth Odela and Nani make this slow burn work. So, credit where credit is due.
