Bollyspice - Allu Arjun In Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo Is A MasterClass Of Swag: "When it comes to South Imdian screen icons, their larger-than-life image far supercedes the calibre, heft and tenability of the their parent-product. Allu Arjun is no exception. In his latest swag-suffused sojourn he puts up a one-man show while all the other actors (including the geat Tabu) are reduced to peripheral attractions."

Times of India review: "Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is set in the soft-tinted, beautifully framed, pastel hued cotton-candy-land that Trivikram Srinivas builds. The evil-doers here are left to their own devices, in hope that karma will get to them. And when that doesn’t work, they’re of course beaten up black and blue, but in style. The film sets up a lot of characters and ends up showcasing scenarios that are completely implausible. But the film’s biggest strength is that you buy it all, even if Trivikram, yet again, tells the tale of a man who wants to help a family he cares about."

The Indian Express review: Allu Arjun and Trivikram Srinivas entertain us again - The main pleasures of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo are not unravelling of the secrets that the characters are determined to carry to their graves. It is Trivikram's writing and his intention to tell a story and entertain the audience without any rush.

I got a good vibe about this when it showed up in the 'Coming Soon' listings in the Netflix app; watched it tonight and was not disappointed. The music was catchy, the dancing was great, and the fight scenes were hilarious (so much dramatic slo-mo).

I think I watched the dubbed version without realizing it though -- it looks like it's on Netflix as both "Angu Vaikuntapurathu (Malayam)" and "Ala Vaikunthapurramulo". I watched the 'Angu' version since that's the one that had been added to my queue via the 'Coming Soon' promo, gonna have to give the original Telegu 'Ala' version a go too.

Sadly there don't seem to be any other Allu Arjun movies on Netflix yet; I hope they add some.

It was just added to US Netflix, and from the articles it did great box office in India in January, so, hopefully it will roll out to other Netflix regions without too long of a delay.
