It means a lot to me personally. You gifted #Pushpa on my birthday (Dec 17) and now you have made the success of #Major even sweeter #MajorTheFilm.” Major released on June 3. On Friday, Mahesh Babu thanked the audience for their 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 has embraced it. This is just the beginning and #Major will only get bigger.. A must watch for every Indian,” the tweet read. Ahead of the release, a series of special screenings of the film were held in several states across the country. In an interview with indianexpress.com, Adivi Sesh opened up on his favourite memory from the screenings. “My best surprise of the promotional campaign was at a secret screening where a group of twenty teary-eyed guys screamed, ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’, as soon as the film ended. They were also hugging each other. It felt like the film watching experience was only for them rather than anyone else, and that meant a lot to me,” he said. Manoj Kumar of indianexpress.com gave the film three stars. “Major is far from being perfect. Nevertheless, it’s an effective homage to the hero of 26/11,” he wrote in the review.
