After many delays and postponements, Vijay Deverakonda’s most anticipated sports action film Liger finally hit the screens on August 25, 2022. Also starring Ananya Panday, the movie follows a story of an underdog fighter with a speech disability trying to get into the professional MMA circle. The trailer of the Puri Jagannadh directorial was received positively with many fans eager to witness the 33-year-old’s action-packed avatar on the screen.
Add in legendary Mike Tyson’s Bollywood debut in form of a cameo and the catchy songs that created quite a stir, the audience had many expectations from it. Additionally, fans were also wholeheartedly anticipating Puri Jagannadh’s flavour in the movie which is known to simply elevate the entertainment factor in movies.
However, judging by the Twitter reviews from fans who caught early shows of the film, Liger appears to have failed on many accounts. From lack of depth in the storyline to subpar screenplay and characters, Liger is currently facing the wrath of disappointed fans. One netizen wrote, ”Such a wasted opportunity for a movie that got good hype. All it needed was a decent talk!”

#Liger: This #VijayDeverakonda starrer has the strength of 2 animals, intelligence of none! This has to go down as the most lamest attempt of showcasing heroism. Also clears one fact: “You can create a shitty film in any language”#LigerHuntBegins #ligerreview #LigerMovie

On the flip side, Vijay Deverakonda’s performance seemed to have stood out the most for the audience. Additionally, the action scenes became the highlight of the Dharma Production venture. Check out Liger’s Twitter review below.

Why did I watch #LIGER ? 🤷#VijayDevarakonda was one of those actors I really appreciated prior to this movie. Why did he chose to come in #Bollywood, is the biggest question. From a classic like #GeethaGovindam to this Liger, that’s a big – big downfall in choosing scripts!

#Liger – Cringe fest from start to finish. It starts decently but gets worse by the minute and the climax 🙏
