Taran Adarsh review of HanuMan

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh reviewed the Teja Sajja-starrer and termed the film 'fascinating'. He wrote, ''director #PrasanthVarma crafts a solid entertainer… #HanuMan is ambitious and exciting - packs drama, emotions, VFX and mythology skilfully… Loaded with goosebump moments + extraordinary finale… Recommended! #HanuMan rests on several noteworthy performances: #TejaSajja portrays his part with conviction, #VaralaxmiSarathkumar leaves a mark, #VinayRai is menacing to the hilt and #Samuthirakani is in super form… #VennelaKishore - although first-rate - deserved more footage.

Talkibg about its visual effects, he added, ''The VFX plays a pivotal part, garnishing the goings-on wonderfully, but not once does it overpower the story… Dubbing of all principal characters is appropriate… Only hiccup, the run time could’ve been shorter [first half drags at times].''
