Great Andhra (Rating: 3/5):
Shyam Singha Roy is a periodic action drama which has enough elements going its way to keep the audience hooked. The opening half is breezy and the latter half which runs on the Shyam Singha Roy track has the right intensity for most parts. But there are many stretched out scenes towards the end which tamper the flow of the film. But as a whole, Shyam Singha Roy is a well-packaged action drama with a good plot.
Mirchi9 (Rating: 2.75/5):
Overall, Shyam Singha Roy has glossy, fresh packaging with excellent technical work, casting, and acting. However, its soul is utterly predictable and routine. Watch it for Nani, and making, but keep expectations low.
123TELUGU (Rating: 3.25/5):
On the whole, Shyam Singha Roy is a classy period drama with an impressive storyline. Nani gives his career best and director Rahul Sankrytan narrates the film in a emotional manner. The film is devoid of masala entertainment and has a slow pace. Barring this, the film has enough drama for the audience to sit back and enjoy this period film. Go for it.
Times Of India (Rating: 3.5/5):
Shyam Singha Roy might not have a story that’s completely out of the box but the staging does have the potential to bowl you over. Barring the underwhelming aspects, give this one a chance this weekend if you’re longing for something that’s (mostly) well-made and backed by a stellar cast.
Tollywood.net (Rating: 3/5):
Shyam Singha Roy touches social topics that were relevant in the 70’s. The way the director Rahul Sankritya present Nani’ rebellion against Devadasi system and his revolt against the social fabric are presented well.
