Mahanati Movie Review

The movie Mahanathi, which portrays the life of the legend Savithri in just three hours has striven hard to celebrate Savitri’s life. The biopic highlights her career and its growth along with her personal happenings. Keerthy Suresh who holds Savithri’s role in the movie has done her ever best job in portraying her role. If not Keerthi Suresh doing well the movie would have been a great fail. Knowing this Keethy had utilized this opportunity to know her potential in imitating someone and has succeeded in it.

This is the first biopic of a movie star in Telugu and Director Ashwin Nag has excited everyone with this movie after his debut Yevade Subramanyam. Ashwin has changed the usual propaganda of showcasing the usual happening of the person while doing a biopic which makes such movies boring. Instead, he has taken up love between Savithri and Gemini Ganesan for the core story.

Coming to the co-actors, Dulquer Salman has an equal role as Savithri’s in the movie which gave him more space to entertain us with his acting. Both have magical love scenes in the first half. Samantha Akkineni and Vijay Devarakonda has also enough pace in highlighting the main points of the movie and they never fail in entertaining us. Apart from them, we have a huge star cast with Mohan Babu, Naga Chaitanya, Naresh, Rajendra Prasad, Prakash Raj, director Krish, Tharun Bhasker Dasyam, Bhanumati and others in small roles.
