Mahanati Movie Review:


Savithri was died in coma. After that Journalist Madhuravani (Samantha) started her journey of researching life story of Savithri. She penned everything about savithri, what she knows from different people. Remaining story showcased with how Savithri (Played by Keerthy Suresh) became great actress and how her life ends between all problems after love with Gemini Ganesan (Dulquer Salmaan).

Artists Performance:

Keerthy Suresh: She got the never before chance with this film. She lived in this role. Keerthy performed Savithri innocence, stardom and addiction to alcohol angles with a round of applause.

Samantha: She perfectly played as an anchor. She dubbed for her role and elevates the emotions in climax shows her stamina of acting.

Samantha scenes and chemistry with Vijay Devarakonda came out well.

Dulquer Salmaan played Gemini Ganesan role. He plays with negative touch in cleaver manner.

Rajendra Prasad got nice supporting role to bring depth of the film. Mohan Babu, Naga Chaitanya and Prakash Raj appear in Cameo Roles.

Plus Points:

Movie is story of Great and Late actress Savithri


Keerthy Suresh Speech less expressions like Savithri

Other lead cast performance

Top notch Production values

Nice Camera work

Costumes and make up should be credited for nice work

Minus Points:

Second half filled with Savithri problems and it looks tad slow. This may little bit bore for some audience.

Who knows Savithri will connect with this film. But other will teach it like a fall down story of a lead actress because of wrong choices.


Technical Aspects are quite good. Main cast did magic with their brilliant expressions, in the roles of great actors. Their makeup & looks moves us into 80’s time situations. Especially makeup department did wonderful job for Making Keerthy Suresh as Savithri. Dialogues came neatly and they look emotional in some areas.

Nag Ashwin taken a right choice of making this film. He really did wonderful magic to create a film on Savithri. Dark side of Late Actress too showcased in well manner. He made the biopic interestingly.


Finally, Mahanati is wonderful tribute to late actress cum great actress Savithri. First half was with rise of savithri career and second half with her fall down & problems. Because of small slow pace, it may be much entertains the all sections of people in some places. Cine lovers should not miss this biopic of legendry Telugu actress. Watch it on theaters……………
