Certain members of Telugu film fraternity took to Twitter to share their views on the movie. Here's what they wrote:
Filmmaker Puri Jagannadh: Still reeling in the patriotic hangover after watching the terrific emotional saga The Attacks of 26/11. Who else on the Indian movie arena can dare to venture and narrate it to the levels of such emotional excellence but RGV? Al-Qaeda will never let its members watch this movie for it will sure transform its terrorists into humanitarians.
Actor Subbaraju: Just watched The Attacks of 26/11, amazing film. Watching movies like this amazes me, how updated and contemporary is the classic text book of film making called RGV.
Writer Kona Venkat: RGV has proven once again that he is the master of realistic cinema.
Actor Charmi Kaur: Just saw 26/11. I have no words but lots to express.
Actor Madhu Shalini: Saw 26/11 last night. Brilliant film. RGV at his best and my favourite Nana Patekar has delivered another outstanding performance. I just can't get over the movie. Want to watch it again!
