However, Veerayya misses the opportunity as he gets stunned by seeing Dr. Nithya and her daughter Vaishnavi, where Nithya angrily takes Vaishnavi away from Veerayya. Seethapathi's brother-in-law gets impatient and prompts Seethapathi to follow Solomon on their own without Veerayya's knowledge, only to get caught by Solomon. Veerayya arrives at the place and tricks Solomon into believing that they want to cut a drug deal with him, therefore saving the day. Later, Veerayya gets invited by Solomon to his private party where a group of masked assassins attempt to nab Solomon, but their plans are foiled by Veerayya, who later realizes that they are the hotel staff.

They reveal themselves as RAW agents, led by Athidhi. Solomon expresses his admiration for Veerayya and offers to ask him anything in return for saving his life. Veerayya asks him to come back to India, and Solomon agrees, but soon finds out about their ploy and they get busted. As Solomon assaults Athidhi for information with his elder brother Michael Caesar on video conference, Veerayya retaliates and reveals that Michael was his ultimate target. Veerayya kills Solomon at the public fair in the Batu Caves, where a helpless Michael witnesses everything.

Past: Four years ago, Michael, in disguise as a fisherman named Kaala, acts as Veerayya's friend and confidant. Without Veerayya's knowledge, Michael supplies drugs from the former's ice factory. The newly appointed ACP Vikram Sagar, who is also Veerayya's half-brother, arrives in Vizag and begins a crackdown on the drug syndicate. During their childhood, Veerayya, who suffered from vertigo, accidentally let Sagar fall from a tree. Ever since, the brothers grew up separately. Though Sagar developed hatred towards Veerayya, Veerayya always loved him. Sagar is also happily married to Nithya, and they have a daughter Vaishnavi.

Sagar tracks down the origin of drugs in Veerayya's locality, but Michael manages to keep his cover. One day, the ice factory accidentally supplies cocaine, wrapped in ice to a school, which resulted in the deaths of 25 children. Michael subsequently frames Veerayya and plans to escape to Malaysia. Veerayya gets arrested by the police, who decides to kill him in an encounter to calm the public rage. Sagar, who believes that Veerayya is innocent, loots the seized drugs to lure Michael. He secretly arrives at the planned encounter shooting, in place of Veerayya to nab Michael.

However, the JCP, who is also Sagar's senior officer, is in cahoots with Michael, and Michael's men fatally stab Sagar. Michael manages to escape as Veerayya arrives, but not before he shows his true face to him. Veerayya tries to take a heavily injured Sagar to the hospital, but Sagar succumbs to his injuries on the way, revealing that he always had affection for him but could not express it publicly due to his crackdown on the drug syndicate. Veerayya is stopped by the police and taken away. Sagar is deprived of state honors and labelled as a traitor by the police. Heartbroken, Veerayya decides on extraditing Michael to India for his testimony in court, before Seethapati shows him the way.

Present: Veerayya sets up Michael against his drug partner by blowing up his base of operations. The rival gang attempts to kill Michael, where he agrees to come to India with Veerayya and testify in court, in exchange for his life. With the help of Athithi, Veerayya brings Michael back to India. Following Michael's testimony, the court recognises Sagar's valour and grants him state honours, whilst also acquitting Veerayya of his charges. To fulfill Sagar's last wish of avenging the children's deaths, Veerayya decapitates Michael in the courtroom and is sentenced to prison.

Neesh*ta Nyayapati of The Times of India gave 3 out of 5 stars and wrote "Waltair Veerayya might not leave you feeling poonakalu as promised, but it's decent enough, especially if you're a Chiranjeevi fan or Ravi Teja's for that matter. Just don't expect something out-of-the-box. Latha Srinivasan of India Today gave 3 out of 5 stars and wrote "Chiranjeevi's role in the film is reminiscent of his earlier films - massy, stylish, comical and full of action. Waltair Veerayya also stars Ravi Teja and Shruti Haasan, and is directed by Bobby Kolli. Chiru's fans are in for a treat. Haricharan Pudipeddi of Hindustan Times wrote "Bobby's intention of delivering an out-and-out enjoyable commercial film with Waltair Veerayya works to a large extent, even when the predictability factor creeps in when you're least expecting. The action sequences really serve as the film's high moments and they deliver the thrills in a big way. These scenes do go overboard on multiple occasions but still work given the film's massive scale.

Manoj Kumar R of The Indian Express rated the film 2 out of 5 stars and wrote "The filmmakers don't want the audience to respond to the character Waltair Veerayya, but they want us to venerate before the star playing Waltair Veerayya". Balakrishna Ganeshan of The News Minute gave the film a rating of 1.5 out of 5 and termed the film as "absolute mess", criticised the story and inconsistency tone of the film. Arvind V of Pinkvilla rated the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and praised the performances but criticised the writing and termed comedy as "insipid" & score as "bleak". Ram Venkat Srikar of Cinema Express rated the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "Films like Waltair Veerayya are reminders that masala cinema, when done neatly, will always be a treat". Soundarya Athimuthu of The Quint gave the film's rating 3 out of 5 and wrote "Waltair Veerayya celebrates Chiranjeevi's four-decade-long legacy with enjoyable characterization. It creates moments of intrigue and brilliant closures near the end".

Box office
The film grossed ₹49.60 crore worldwide on its opening day. The film performed well at the box office on the opening weekend. The film became Chiranjeevi's third film to cross 2 million dollar mark at the US box office after Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Khaidi No. 150.
