1. Times of India 

Rating Score -> 4/5
Srikanth offers a refreshingly honest portrayal that celebrates potential over glorification. It will leave you feeling inspired and sparing a thought for those with disabilities who deserve human dignity and equal opportunities like all of us!

2. First Post 

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
In the last few decades, we have come across several biopics from Bollywood, which showed us the inspiring journey of athletes, armed officers, actors and other influential personalities. Amid this, filmmaker Tushar Hiranandani brings the inspiring journey of a visually impaired industrialist Srikanth Bolla, whose life teaches us to never stop dreaming big and if SriCan then even we can.

3. Times Now 

Rating Score -> 3/5
Director Tushar Hiranandani keeps the audience engaged throughout, emphasizing the importance of equal opportunities and dignity for all. The soundtrack, featuring hummable romantic tracks and a standout rendition of Papa Kehte Hain, adds to the film’s emotional impact. Overall, Srikanth is a thought-provoking and inspiring journey that highlights the importance of inclusion and equal opportunities for people of all abilities.

4. News 18 

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Srikanth completely rests on Rajkummar Rao’s shoulder. The actor has put himself outside his comfort zone to ace the nuances of the character. However, due to the screenplay’s lack of depth, the actor looked like he was hamming in a few scenes in the second half. I wished the second half was tackled a lot better because the film could be bigger than it already is.

5. India Today 

Rating Score -> 4/5
The real hero of the film is not only Srikanth Bolla, but also the beautiful script. Brownie points to director Tushar Hiranandani, who has once again aced the biopic genre after Saand Ki Aankh and Scam 2003. He never tries to paint the protagonist as the hero here, and that’s what creates true magic. Unlike most biopics that whitewash the subject, the director does not shy away from showing Srikanth’s (once) bloated ego, which could have changed the trajectory of his life and career.

6. Rediff 

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
In the end, it’s Rao who does the best with what he is given and he ably elevates the generic story-telling. Too bad that his performance remains the only takeaway from such an inspiring real-life story.

7. Indian Express 

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Rajkummar Rao brings skill and sincerity to this inspiring biopic. Rajkummar Rao is one of the few actors who is capable of fully inhabiting his role, and even more important, shed all vanity in the process.

8. NDTV 

Rating Score -> 3/5
Srikanth, as uplifting a film as any, deserves a wide audience. It is more than a mere story. It is a heartwarming celebration of a way of seeing the world in a new light.

9. Hindustan Times 

Rating Score -> n/a
Srikanth is not preachy; it’s just stating facts. It does stress on the fact that while others have sight, the visually challenged have a vision, but it never tries to show them as less privileged. With tons of humour laced carefully to not take away the seriousness of the subject, Srikanth is a heartwarming tale that leaves you feeling inspired and instils a feeling of self-belief. If Sri can, so can you.

10. The Week 

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
The film exhibits confidence only when it is around him. But the film’s director and cinematographer Pratham Mehta are so in awe of Rao’s performance that they constantly elevate him, framing him like a hero and not a man. This creates an admiring distance between us and Rao, when what we really needed was some intimacy.

11. Komal Nahta 

Rating Score -> n/a
Srikanth has inherent value in the inspirational story but that’s about all because it just doesn’t go too much beyond that. The scripting and the narration are both terrible letdowns. As such, it will remain a weak fare.
