The Naga Chaitanya-starrer action-thriller film released across the cinema halls on Friday, May 12. Fans are quite excited to see the Laal Singh Chaddha actor in a different avatar. In the film, Naga Chaitanya will be seen playing the role of a police constable who is assigned the task of bringing a dreaded gangster to court. The antagonist, played by Arvind Swami, also steals the show. Now if you are planning to watch the film in theatres, here is the first review on Twitter from the audience.
One of the users wrote, “The first 30 minutes is slow…but later the movie turns awesome…the background changes and it is well presented…direction, BGM, cinematography Appreciation… Arvind Swami Nice interval.”
Another person said, “Custody is an engaging thriller with lots of twists and turns and as it is Venkat Prabhu’s film, he shows realistic. Naga Chaitanya excelled and he looked fab especially in the action sequences. Arvind Swami is simply rough in his own way and his look is supercool.
Another microblogging user said, “Interesting plot points with some well designed scenes that work but everything else is tiresome. The film is dragged with repetitive action sequences at many places and narrated in a flat manner. The BGM is fine but the songs are terrible.”
#detention Overall a below par action thriller! Interesting plot points with some well designed scenes that work but everything else is tiresome. The film is draggy with repetitive action sequences at many places and narrated in a flat manner. BGM is ok but songs are terrible.

Here are some more reactions from viewers:
Apart from Naga Chaitanya and Arvind Swamy, Custody also stars R Sarathkumar, Kriti Shetty, Priyamani and Sampath Raj in key roles. The action thriller is directed by Venkat Prabhu, making his Telugu directorial debut and backed by Srinivasa Chitturi under the banner Srinivasa Silver Screen along with Anji Industries. The music of the film is given by Ilaiyaraaja and Yuvan Shankar Raja.
Looking at the mixed response from the audience, it is safe to say that Custody must have impressed the audience. But we will have to wait and see whether it fares well at the ticket counters or not.
