ReceptionEdit

In its review of the film, The Times of India gave a rating of 1.5/5 and wrote “Mindless action scenes, love at first sight (quite literally), a dozen comedians who fail to evoke laughter, an evil politician and an aloof, goofy young man who suddenly turns into a saviour. Sounds familiar? Ravi Teja’s latest venture Nela Ticket is as predictable as they come. Loud and boorish, this Kalyan Krishna directorial lacks imagination and creativity.”[12]

The Hindustan Times gave a rating of 1.5/5 and wrote “Nela Ticket scores low on sensitivity though with its rape jokes and the lead’s stalker-like behavior. Was it necessary to have a character threaten rape to get his way? Isn’t it time for Tollywood to lose this trope to get audiences to laugh, because it is tone-deaf and insensitive. And really, what is funny about it?”.[13]

123telugu gave a rating of 2.25/5 and wrote "The film completely falters at the script level itself. Though the key points are joined well at the end, the way they are brought into the plot look logicless. Too many loopholes are clearly visible in the proceedings right throughout the film. Yet another drawback of the film is that it is painfully long. There was no need to stretch the plot to such extent in both the halves. After a point in time in the first half, you get so irritated to see the first half never coming to an end. The selection of heroine is pathetic as there is absolutely no chemistry between the lead pair and they don’t look good as a pair".[14]

SMTV 24X7 gave a positive review, praising the story, direction and performances. They commented: " ... The director has made the film an entertaining watch by including the regular masala elements of Ravi Teja's movies. Its comedy and an emotional quotient will strike a chord with the audience. ... As usual, Ravi Teja has delivered a brilliant performance."[15]
