Produced by Chiranjeevi's actor-son Ram Charan, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has been released in Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada. The film carries a price tag of Rs 300 crore. The film is inspired by the life of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy-an 18th century feudal lord-from the Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh, who started a rebellion against the British East India Company in 1846. In the film, Amitabh Bachhan plays Chiranjeevi's mentor in his battle. The film also stars Nayanthara and Tamannaah, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi and Jagapati Babu in significant roles.
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has mostly received positive reviews. Film critic Ramesh Bala said, "Chiranjeevi breathes fire into Sye Raa's character. Tamanaah makes good impression". The film's music is composed by Amit Trivedi and Bajrangi Bhaijaan-famed Julius Packiam.
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy was released along Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer film War on October 2. This action-drama film dominated the Indian box office on its first-day. However, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has given a tough fight to War in south India. Siddharth Anand's directorial film War has become the biggest opener to date. The film has earned over Rs 52 crore in the domestic box office, smashing Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan's opening day record.
