There is no point to rush to theatres to watch a boring drama that kills our time On the whole, ‘Rough’ is an average mass entertainer

An Outdated Action Flick!

Nothing new about the subject but the treatment makes it watchable

Great Andhra
It’s amazing how every second film in the Telugu film industry will adopt the same staid formula – a Greek god style hero, eyelash-batting heroine, a couple of bad guys, some song-dance numbers and the inevitable fight sequences that will see the hero flex muscles, have his shirt ripped off and beat the bad guys
Ranjani Rajendra, The Hindu
The major drawback of ‘Rough’ is the approach of Subba Reddy. He is truly deficient in quality and clarity. Instead of following a confusing narrative, he could have focused on elevating the core depth of emotions. In one line, he mishandled the entire plot. Except one beach fight and enchanting look do Rakul, there is nothing solid to mention. Interval bang is also forcibly added with hushing entry of CI character and later on, there is no redemption of flashback with the main story line. Such blunders are easy to find in plenty.
Ch.Subba Reddy planned to give Aadi mass image. He selected good plot but failed in his execution.Though focus is on Aadi and he excelled in his dances and fights, with Rakul giving glamour treat, story lacked required twists and turns to keep viewers glued. Right from the start story runs on predictable lines and there is nothing new in the film.
An entertainer with some unpredictable and witty moments.
India Glitz
'Rough' is a commercial entertainer which plots a mix of love story and action
N Veena, Filmi Beat
On the whole, ‘Rough’ is a below par mass entertainer which lacks an interesting story line. Aadi’s performance and a few emotional scenes here and there are the only saving grace in this film which is quite outdated and boring.
