Karan Johar’s Liger Starring Vijay Devarakonda-Ananya Panday review
Many felt that the movie failed to meet the hype and the expectations.
One Twitter user wrote, ” VD tried his best and body transformation is great but his stammering is annoying. Heroine track is awful. Other than a few moments, Nothing else to mention. Puris biggest strength is the hero characterization and dialogues but in this movie he went completely over the top and it goes into the cringe zone. Tysons character is ridiculous. This is not a movie for VD to enter the Pan India market. Bad Choice”. The other said, “Other than VD’s physical transformation, film has no plus. Horrible perf from Ananya. No villain character (Puri is d villain). 1st Hlf is atleast Bearable, 2nd Hlf is total crap. Forced Mike Tyson Climax sticks out. Full of Outdated scenes. WORST!”

Only positive for Liger is Vijay’s performance. As an actor he never failed. The script itself is the major villain here. #AnanyaPandey has been a cringe fedt throughout the movie. Puri is done. His writing skills are long dead. Hope vijay picks up well after this. pic.twitter.com/oBYm0oxvuO— comicalguru (@comicalguru) August 25, 2022

Many people didn’t shy away from calling it torture and disaster:
Disaster reports all over for #Liger#VijayDeverakonda excelled with his performance #PuriJagannadh failed to utilise the opportunity#AnanyaPandey not a heroine material— Movie Buzz (@TFIMovieBuzz) August 25, 2022

#Liger Disastrous movie!. #AnanyaPandey delivers a disastrous performance yet again. Predictable plot and bad screenplay. Lengthyand dragged scenes. 0/10— Anurag Tilak (@AnuragTilak22) August 25, 2022
“@purijagan should realise, his lead character showing middle finger on screen is not attitude. Most of his dialogues are summary of his musings. Finally, #PuriJagannadh is following footsteps of his Guru #RGV, by making cringe movies,” wrote a user.
Truly gutted with #Liger Never expected that #Purijagan would make such a bad film. With such hype, expected an avg film but it fails to deliver. #Vijaydevarakonda is good but rest falls face flat. #Ananyapandey— A V A D (@avadsays) August 25, 2022

Many people called out Ananya Pandey for her lackluster performance:
#liger is definitely a bad movie .
But what made its a unbearable torture film for me is the acting of #AnanyaPandey .
Please avoid casting bollywood actress in telugu films 🙏🤮@Charmmeofficial @purijagan @TheDeverakonda @PuriConnects pic.twitter.com/FXmp565Rpy— J (@jayyybigwin) August 25, 2022
#AnanyaPandey is pan India disaster hence proved.. producers should stop casting her in movies, no merit #Liger— Hopping Bug (@was_chaos) August 25, 2022

The love story part of #LigerMovie is the biggest drawback 🙏
There’s no magic between the leads🥲#AnanyaPandey tries to get into Puri’s Writings but doesn’t succeed🥲
A South Heroine would had been good✌️#ligerreview #LigerHuntBegins #WaatLagaDenge pic.twitter.com/ioiBkxMsM4
#AnanyaPandey pls avoid casting nepostic materials in South movie , big lesson for them after seeing pathetic reviews on her acting .— shafali sisodia (@shaff0335) August 25, 2022
Well, i had this feeling for #Liger. The way its trailer was cutt i knew that this movie is gonna be trash. Pathetic script, poor performances by everyone #AnanyaPandey specifically does not had potential to grab audience by her ass shaking performance even #VijayDevarakonda👎— Silent Knight🐾 (@SilentBawse) August 25, 2022
Horrible acting yet gets filmfare and top movies #bollywoodmafia #AnanyaPandey— pavi Thiru (@paviThiru1) August 25, 2022
In midst of negative reviews, there were some positive too
“One-word review:- Excellent One of the best movies related to journey of a wrestler and fight scenes were so classic. #VijayDevarakonda as usual nailed his role in movie. #MikeTyson played an excellent role.#AnanyaPanday was so hot and pretty,” read one tweet.
Along with Vijay and Ananya, starring Mike Tyson and Ramya Krishnan, Liger is directed by Puri Jagannadh and jointly produced by Karan Johar, Charmme Kaur, Apoorva Mehta, Hiroo Yash Johar, and Puri Jagannadh under the banners of Dharma Productions and Puri Connects.
