Performance: Natural Star Nani gives yet another riveting performance in this movie. His performance and body languages are top-notch. He entertains with perfect comedy timing. Anupama Parameswaran as Subba Lakshmi does a commendable job. Rukshar Mir as Riya, the love interest of Krishna, performs well. Brahmaji got a good comedy role. Youtube star Sudhakar as a painter and sidekick of Krishna justifies with his role. Rest of the cast perform accordingly.
Technical: The story line of the film is simple and predictable. The screenplay is interesting. The director has mixed the elements properly in the film to create interest. Most of the songs scored by Hiphop Tamizha go with the flow of the film. The background music is good. Cinematography by Kathik Ghattamaneni in eye candy. Dialogues are written well. Editing is not seamless. Art direction is good. Production values of shine screens are excellent.
Analysis: Krishnarjuna Yudham is incredibly predictable. First half of the film is engaging as it is loaded with non-stop comedy. Second half goes into action mode but lacks engaging value. Nani’s comedy provides entertainment. Krishnarjuna Yudham rides on Nani and nothing more.
