Mahanati Telugu Movie Review:

The complete Mahanati movie review is here for you. Check if it catches your heart or not!


No one can easily forget the film ‘Yevade Subrahmanyam’ in which director Nag Ashwin showed the reality of life. Now, the very same director came up with renowned actress Savitri Biopic ‘Mahanati’. There are many biopics released till date and people felt almost all of them boring as they are watching something on the screen they already know.

But ‘Mahanati’ revealed many dark secrets about Savitri life which made people excited and emotional about it and we must appreciate Nag Ashwin for presenting such a wonderful film. The most interesting thing is that Nag Ashwin showcased everything about Savitri life without hiding and made Mahanati the best film that Telugu film industry has never seen before.

Mahanati ‘Keerthy Suresh’:

We can say this is the career-best performance of Keerthy as Savithri and no other actress can live in the role of Savithri so well. At times, people can’t recognize that they are seeing Keerthy or Savitri on the screen. From the stage of an innocent girl to becoming an alcohol addict, she lived in the role.

The terrific performance of her can be seen when she gets to know that she is getting cheated by her husband. Again, director Nag Ashwin should be praised for taking Keerthy for the role of Mahanati when many celebs and common people doubted her on such legendary role.

Dulquer Salman:

Dulquer Salman fits the role of Gemini Ganeshan perfectly and his chemistry with Savitri in the first half mesmerizes everyone. The way he shows his negative side in the second half is quite impressive.

Other Cast:

Samantha (Madhuravani) performance as a journalist investigating the case of Savithri who is in a coma is splendid. The emotional scenes played at the climax by her are just awesome. Vijay Devarakonda performance as a journalist and Sam’s boyfriend is executed well and the chemistry between the duo worked out. Rajendra Prasad in a supporting role impressed the whole audience and Prakash Raj, Krish, Bhanu Priya, and Mohan Babu are perfect in their roles.

Technical Aspects:

The lyrics of the songs by Sirivennela and Ramajogaiah Sastry were fantastic and Mickey J Meyer provided amazing music for it. The cinematography is realistic and the complete credits must be given to Dani Sanchez-Lopez for his amazing camera work. The art department is very supportive and made every small detail looks perfect on the screen. The dialogues by Sai Madhav Burra were superb and apt for the setup chosen. Production values of Swapna Cinema should be appreciated.

What’s good?

  • The performance of each and every actor (Keerthy Suresh and Dulquer Salman needs a special mention).
  • Direction
  • Music
  • Cinematography
  • Lyrics

What’s Okay?

The film runs for almost 3 hours which is high when compared to all other movies but it is required to showcase each and every scene perfectly on the screen.

What’s Bad?

There is no such thing in the whole film!


Mahanati is the daring attempt made after a lot of research which can be seen clearly on the screen. One must watch the film to know the hidden secrets of legendary actress Savithri’s life and what she went through and how she became an inspiration to many young actors of India. There is no wonder, if we say you will become the greatest fan of Keerthy Suresh after watching the film. Though there are other movie releases this week, this is a movie that must not miss for any reason!
