‘Poor script, embarrassing visuals’: Vijay Devarakonda-Annya Pandey starrer Liger trashed by critics.
The much-awaited sports action film Liger starring Telugu stars Vijay Devarakonda and Ananya Pandey is currently in theaters, but it seems to be a flop among the audience and critics. Directed by Puri Jagannath and produced with Dharma Productions by Charme Kaur and Karan Johar, the film has received negative reviews with critics and fans writing it off as a ‘flop’ film.
Many took to Twitter to express their displeasure at the film’s “weak script” and “screen script” and called Puri Jagannadh’s “lazy aspect”.
Gone case..Not the pan india introduction vijay should get. Other than his screen presence nothing worked,pathetic writing and ananya pandya is a big dud as heroine..too many cringe scenes, so so music overall a bad film. 2/5 #Liger

Some called the film a ‘wasted opportunity’.
A film critic known by the Twitter handle @venkyreviews rated the film 2.5 out of 5 saying that Liger is a film that has the potential to be beautiful, spoiled by silly writing and cringe-worthy visuals!
#Liger Review – Ve…Ve…Very Bad
Mirchi9 Rating: 1.75/5
Overall, #Liger is a wasted opportunity, no doubt. And the blame should be entirely taken by the actor for accepting and the director for the story. #MikeTyson regrettably plays a forgettable role. https://t.co/2IGgnnqv6f

“Puri’s biggest strength is character and dialogue but in this film he completely transcends it and goes into crisis territory. Tyson’s character is ridiculous This is not a film to enter the pan-India market for VD Bad choice #League,” Venky reviews
Sorry @TheDeverakonda – All your hard work in to dustbin. Your stammering on screen did not work at all .
Move away from Bollywood , do proper Telugu movies , it will automatically become pan Indian projects ! #Liger
