Critical reception[edit]

The Times of India gave 3 out of 5 stars stating "Some preaching, some family drama, some humour and Shailaja Reddy Alludu plays safe for a festive release".[9] IndiaGlitz gave 3 out of 5 stars stating "'Shailaja Reddy Alludu' is a formula-driven story. Maruthi gets able actors and technicians on board. With some better drive and gravitas, this one would have been far better".[10] Behindwoods gave 2.75 out of 5 stars stating "Overlooking certain minor glitches and a predictable screenplay, Shailaja Reddy Alludu is worth a watch for its feel-good and fun elements!".[11] Hindustan Times gave 2 out of 5 stars stating "Shailaja Reddy Alludu is a commercial entertainer and the same old formula of a sincere son-in-law who helps his lady love’s family is presented well. However, don’t go expecting anything beyond the film says it is – a formulaic entertainer that never even attempts to be anything more".[12]
