Stunning would be a small word to describe the amount of craftsmanship that has gone into the making of Mahanati. The amount of detailing and homework that the team did on each and every character in the movie is simply outstanding. The costumes, lighting, authenticity, and simplicity make Mahanati a must watch biopic.
Keerthi Suresh came up with her career best performance and deserves each and every bit of appreciation that she is receiving. She lived in the role of the legendary Savitri garu. Her elegance and grace have been perfectly emulated by Keerthi and she scores a cent for her outstanding performance.
The remaining star cast, including Samantha, Vijay Deverakonda, Krish, Shalini Pandey are a treat to watch on the screen and have their own share of prominence in the proceedings.
Interestingly, Nag Ashwin did not have any second thoughts about portraying the downfall of the legendary actress as it was in real life. Her alcohol addiction and lack of control on her own life have been presented without any sugarcoating. The climax gets everyone really emotional as one cannot simply digest the fact that a lady icon is deteriorating with every passing day.
All we can say is that you will enter the movie hall thinking it is Savitri’s movie, but you will come out realizing this is SAVITRI GARU’s movie.
