Rediff Ratings: 3
Family relationships and values are the main focus in Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu. So if you want to see a non-violent, family values kind of film, this one is for you. It's just that it seems a little out of date.
Idle Brain Rating: 3.25
SVSC should not be treated as a multi-starrer, but should be seen as a multi-actor film. The roles played by Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu are realistic with a bit of grey shades and natural emotions. There are no fights, forced comedy scenes and other 'routine' commercial elements.
Times of India Rating 3.5
It's a good old fashioned family drama sans the usual masala, so as long as you don't expect fire works you'll not be disappointed.
Super Good Movies Rating: 3.5

Gulte Rating: 3.5
This film has few emotions that will appeal to family audience and females. People who have great bonding with their brothers too might get connected. We have to wait and see how masses embrace this movie.
India Glitz Review
It is neither a Karan Johar family entertainer where a marriage or love affair creates a rift between two emotionally mature members of the family nor a Krishna Vamsi film where the family members wear their hearts on their sleeves and they habitually huddle around the elder, letting the cameraman to leisurely capture their over-indulgent moments. The film follows a format of its own, without its share of episodes of anti-climactic and climactic nature that are believed to be so mandatory for any movie.

Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu is a beautifully woven tale of human emotions. The film is a must watch, just to see Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu bond so well on the big screen if not for anything else. Good performances from the lead cast, clean family drama and some nice emotional moments are big bonuses. Don't go in expecting traditional heroism from Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu.
