TELUGU SWAG RATING:
India Today (Rating: 2.5/5):
‘King of Kotha’ is a gangster drama that has many interesting ideas. But, they are underused. Despite the pacing issues, the film holds your attention.
Indian Express (Rating: 1.5/5):
Mirchi9 (Rating: 2.25/5):
Overall, King Of Kotha is a predictable and routine gangster drama with neat execution. If the technicalities like BGM, artwork, casting, etc. are enough and length isn’t an issue, it is a decent watch.
123TELUGU (Rating: 2.25/5):
On the whole, King Of Kotha is a lengthy and boring gangster drama. Dulquer Salmaan shines as usual, and he gets nice support from Dancing Rose. But the routine story and the snail-paced narrative worked against the film big-time. Hence, King Of Kotha ends up as a disappointing watch this weekend.
Times Of India (Rating: 2.25/5):
Overall, King Of Kotha is a gangster drama that is predictable and ordinary, with a few high moments. However, the performances and technical work, can satisfy you if you choose to ignore the dull pace and lag in the narration.
