Great Andhra (Rating: 2.5/5):
If we stop comparing and watch it as a straight Telugu thriller, “Maestro” will engage you as the story has meat. The thriller has many merits. But even if we stop comparing it to Hindi, the second half could have been better. In a nutshell, “Maestro” is a crime drama that gets certain things right, certain things not.
Mirchi9 (Rating: 2.5/5):
Overall, Maestro is a decent remake and a passable watch. The entire narrative is the same minus some simple additions. If only the casting were good, Maestro would have delivered bigger and with more intensity. What we have here is a slick but flat recreation.
123TELUGU (Rating: 3/5):
On the whole, Maestro is a faithful remake of Andha Dhun and has interesting thrills. Nithin and Tamannah shoulder the film with their standout performances. All those who have seen the original will surely miss the drama a bit. But those who have not will end up liking this thriller which was some passable suspense elements.
Times Of India (Rating: 3/5):
Merlapaka Gandhi attempts to take on the award-winning black comedy Andhadhun and tweak it a little bit for Maestro. While the basic beats of the film remain familiar and it’s almost a frame to frame remake, there are hearts tugged by sentiment and key plot points spoon-fed while it was left to imagination in the original. By the time the scene where a lead knocks a soda can out of their way rolls around, you’re left with mixed feelings.
