TELUGU SWAG RATING:
TELUGU 360 (Rating: 2.75/5):
The film comes with a strong socio-political subtext and subtleties. The backdrop, Arya’s brilliant performance and the screenplay are its strengths. The second half feels like a drag on the flipside.

123TELUGU (Rating: 3/5):
Sarpatta Parampara has its moments of brilliance in the opening half but bland narration in the post-interval and pre-climax portion undo the good work. The performances of the lead cast is the main highlight of the film. On a whole, the film makes for an okayish one-time watch.
Times Of India (Rating: 3.5/5):
The film’s major success lies in transporting us to the era and ensuring that not a character or a prop feels out of place. The casting and the production design (Ramalingam) deserve all the accolades. And the film’s highpoint — a gloriously staged fight (Anbariv are the stunt choreographers) between Kabilan and Dancing Rose (Shabeer Kallarakkal), a quirky and experienced fighter from the Idiyappam Parambarai — is hard to forget.
