The Virupaksha movie got positive reviews from audiences and critics. Over 1.2k people rated this movie 8.2 stars out of 10 stars on IMDb, which are good reviews from audiences. Neeshita Nyayapati from The Times of India rated this movie 3 stars out of 5 stars and said “There might be moments in Virupaksha that’ll make you question if the makers are toeing that line. But for most of the film, you’re engrossed enough to give in to the vision – and that’s a win.“
Latha Srinivasan from India Today rated this movie 3 stars out of 5 stars and said “The movie is rated A due to the violence and some of the scenes depicted. While the climax of the film may appeal to some and not to others, the film focuses on superstitions that some people in the country still believe in. It should be food for thought. On the whole, the film is a good entertainer.“
Venkat Arikatla from Greatandhra rated this movie 2.75 stars out of 5 stars and said “On the whole, “Virupaksha” is a mystic thriller that stays true to its genre, and the narration captures our attention for the most part. Despite some flaws, such as dragged-out scenes at the end and a mediocre romantic score, the film is worth a watch.“
