#Vaathi: Big thumbs up to @gvprakash for his scintillating work with the background score. His combination with @dhanushkraja works again, and GVP proves his worth through the emotional themes and elevates the mass moments too.

#Vaathi - 3.25 out of 5, a meaningful entertainer from #VenkyAtluri on power of education and how one shouldn’t commercialise it. The first half is quite entertaining, the second half is more emotional and talks about the core subject + pay it forward concept. Good one 🙌— Rajasekar (@sekartweets) February 16, 2023

Preachy / unrealistic at moments but otherwise highly engaging
PS: The movie felt like a Telugu film dubbed in Tamil#SIRMovie
