Mahanati Review

Keerthi Suresh looks perfect, her expressions and body language are immaculate to such an extent that the audiences would laugh, cry, fall in love and express all sorts of possible emotions while watching her perform. Dulquer Salmaan, as Gemini Ganesan, is fantastic as an actor and it requires guts to portray a character with a thin line of grey shade.

It is director Nag Ashwin, who walks out with major honours along with Keerthi Suresh. His vision, screen writing and treatment have been flawless. A definite must watch movie for all sections of audiences.

On the whole, Mahanati is a fitting tribute to the legendary actress Savitri. The rise and downfall of Telugu cinema’s most famous actress have been shown in a very effective manner.

Mahanati is an authentic biopic that’s told in an uncompromising manner. The director didn’t commercialise the narration for the sake of frontbenchers. On a whole, Mahanati takes you through an emotional rollercoaster ride. Go and watch it!

Rarely we come across a film, err an epic, like Mahanati. Start to end, the film has its moments. Director Nag Ashwin carefully shaped up the film. It is a befitting tribute to the legendary actress. Yes, this biopic makes an indelible impact. Go for it.

For all its minor flaws, 'Mahanati' is a story told without recourse to short-cuts. Director Nag Ashwin says no to low-hanging fruits and makes the biopic proudly self-contained.

“Mahanati” is a perfect ode to a great actress that is told in a touching manner with spellbinding performance from Keerthy Suresh. But definitely, this is a story of an illustrious actress that every movie lover should watch.
