Vijay Devarakonda starring “Liger” released in theatres with much expectations among fans and the reviews are pouring in the internet from all the directions. From the videos of public opining their views to movie reviewers releasing long videos, the film indeed garnered a huge reception on it’s opening day. But it failed to make an impact it seems as most of the reviews are negative and many fans opted to roast the film through their posts instead of reviewing it.
Being one of the most awaited films of the “Arjun Reddy” actor, “Liger” has VJD as an MMA fighter who goes on to win his matches. Known for his films that involves romance and violence, Vijay is expected to rock in the never seen before Avatar of him. Along with Vijay Devarakonda, the film stars Ananya Pandey, former boxing champion Mike Tyson and others. The film is directed by Puri Jagannath of “Pokkiri” and “Temper” fame. Renowned Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar is one of the producers of the movie.
“Liger” released in theatres across India on 25th of August with much expectations from fans as the promotions were done in a massive way. A fan who watched the FDFS, said that he expected a “KGF” kind of film but it failed in big time. Movie reviewer Prashanth, throughout his 9 minute long review, roasted the film and said that it will face a huge loss financially.
Talking about bringing legendary boxer Mike Tyson as the film’s cast, a fan said “What an idiotic way to use a legend like him in your movie @TheDeverakonda @purijagan SHAME ON YOU GUYS.#LIGER could have been made into a great film with a icon like him” whereas another one wrote “Disaster Downloading for @karanjohar for making legend Mike Tyson look like a joker”

Liger – One of the worst screenplay seen in recent times. #VijayDeverakonda hard work went vain. #AnanyaPanday is irritating. #RamyaKrishnan acting is ok. #MikeTyson in climax wasted. Overall #PuriJagannadh kicked us. Better avoid and save money.#Liger #Review #LigerHuntBegins pic.twitter.com/Fh3utkblY2
