Major was released on June 3rd. On Friday, Mahesh Babu thanked the audience for the overwhelming response to Major. “Thank you for the overwhelming response to #MajorTheFilm. Really proud of my entire team! We made an honest film and India accepted it. This is just the beginning and #Major will only get bigger. A must for every Indian,” the tweet reads.
Prior to its release, a series of special screenings of the film took place in several states across the country. In an interview with indianexpress.com, Adivi Sesh shared his favorite memory from the screenings. “My biggest surprise of the ad campaign was a secret screening where a group of twenty teary-eyed guys yelled ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ as soon as the film ended. They hugged too. It felt like the movie experience was just for her and not everyone else, and that meant a lot to me,” he said.
Manoj Kumar of indianexpress.com awarded the film three stars. “Major is far from perfect. Still, it’s a powerful tribute to the hero of 26/11,” he wrote in the review.
