Thumbs up, by Shabana Ansari, DNA : ...This typical South Indian fare is sprinkled liberally with masala and served hot with dollops of passion, vendetta, reincarnation and the triumph of good over evil. ... full review

Thumbs up, by Vivek Bhatia, Filmfare : ...Kudos to Kotagiri Venkateshwar Rao for coming up with such a novel concept and director Rajamouli for his commendable execution. Despite the umpteen absurdities, Makkhi comes across as utterly ridiculous, yet believable.... full review

Thumbs up, Free Press Journal : ...The symbolism (possibly un-intentioned) of the vulnerable and seemingly meek becoming all-powerful when infused with the strength of purpose and single-minded devotion to cause, makes for a telling moral.... full review

Thumbs up, by Deepa Garimella, : ...Turning a filthy insect into a protagonist you laugh and cry with, Eega is a rollicking entertainer movie that also accomplishes something else - pushes the boundaries of the Telugu film industry's imagination.... full review

Thumbs up, by Martin D'Souza, : ... It's another story that I had to literally bulldoze my way into buying a ticket at IMAX since I was the only one for the first show at 3.45pm. ... full review

Thumbs up, by Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times : ... Makkhi is the most outlandish film I've seen in years. It's also the most fun I've had in a theatre recently. ... full review

Thumbs up, by Namrata Joshi, Outlook India : ...Take the age-old reincarnation theme of Indian films, add a dash of fantasy and sci-fi and a moral more implicit than overt and what you get is a winsome film. ... full review

Thumbs up, by Ankur Pathak, Rediff : ...The Hindi dubbing is superficial and substandard but that doesn't matter much. ... full review

Thumbs up, by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies : ...Technically, the film is a treat. In this carefully crafted 'live-action' film, the makkhi dances, flies, cries and emotes with gusto! ... full review

Thumbs up, by K N Gupta, : ...a movie you miss at your peril.... full review

Thumbs up, Star Blockbuster : ...he film could have been shorter by 10 minutes and excluded superstition stuff about tantriks.... full review

Thumbs up, by Meena Iyer, Times of India : ...The portion involving a tantrik is pure hog-wash and more suited to a B-grade horror film than here. But this is a minor irritant in an otherwise enjoyable film. ... full review

Thumbs up, by Shomini Sen, Zee News : ...the film works mostly because of two reasons - its creativity and to make a mundane run of the mill revenge story so appealing.... full review

Thumbs down, by Mayank Shekhar, Daily Bhaskar : ...This is because the protagonist is a fly! And that’s a problem. Of all southern remakes, this is the one that could do with being re-shot with larger budgets, re-edited with snappier cuts, rather than merely being re-released. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Fatema H Kagalwala, India Entertainment : ...However, it holds onto good old story-telling conventions and serves a tight and engaging dramatic piece but as a lasting experience it falls way short.... full review
