Saaho has been getting generally good early reviews so far. Twitterati can't stop gushing at Prabhas' and Shraddha's performances. Apparently a Twitter user hinted that 'the pre-interval twist will shock a lot of people'.

There were a few negative reviews for Saaho too. This is what film critic Sumit Kadel had to write:

While another said that the first half was average at best. "Average first half.. Boring songs.. Prabhas action awesome... Shradha kapoor always nice.. #Saahoreview (sic)."

According to trade experts, Saaho could be one of the biggest films India has seen. Ramesh Bala, an entertainment trade analyst says, "Baahubali 2 is the biggest grosser in India... Saaho is Prabhas' next movie after Baahubali 2. So the expectations are sky-high... The movie is releasing in several languages. A solo release on Aug 30th.. 1,500 screens in Telugu states and 550 screens in Tamil Nadu... It must be 6,000 or more all India. Making it one of the biggest releases of 2019."
