MORE CAST & CREW
“ Maharshi” is scripted and directed by Vamsi Paidipally. This is the 25th film of Prince Charm Mahesh Babu. Devi Sri Prasad composed the music. Vyjayanthi Movies, Sri Venkateswara Creations and PVP Cinema produced the film on a large scale. “ K U Mohanan” cranked the camera and “ K L Praveen” edited the film. The film has Mahesh Babu, Pooja Hegde, Allari Naresh, Prakash Raj, “ Jayasudha” and Jagapati Babu in the cast.
Rishi is a highly talented student and he wants to achieve something big in his life. While doing his final year M. Tech, he is offered a job in an MNC in the US. He happily moves there. Within a short period, he becomes the CEO of Origin. While his career has been going on well as he expected, he gets a piece of information that his buddy Ravi has been protesting against an MNC in his village to save the land and the farmers. Rishi wants to help his friend, who sacrificed a lot for him. The US CEO moves to India and the rest of the story is about how he saves the farmers and the farmlands. Watch the film in theaters!
Mahesh Babu has done his best. He looks super stylish. Yet, we miss some signature expressions of the actor, which we usually witness in his films. Allari Naresh impresses the audiences with his emotional performance. We could say that this is his career-best performance. Pooja Hegde has done what is assigned to her. Jagapati Babu has nothing big to do. Similarly, we could just watch Prakash Raj, Jayasudha and Sai Kumar playing some roles in the film. But, they don’t have any solid packages.
Vamsi has beautifully portrayed Mahesh as a college student. The Prince looks trendy. Similarly, his CEO portions are also well designed. But, it seems to have been a bit exaggerated. The script is good. But… the screenplay? It is also good. But, in a certain sequence, we could witness a combination of Mahesh’s previous films including “ Srimanthudu” and Bharath Ane Nenu. That might have happened to project the film and the star, as it is his special film. Vamsi should have avoided those and tried something fresh. As the film focuses only on Mahesh Babu and not the other supporting cast including the villain, slightly it is boring in certain scenes. However, the climax is good and helped the audiences to sit straight. BGM and songs are fantastic and kudos to the Rock Star. The length of the film should have been trimmed.
What’s Not There?
If the scenes that have the references from his previous films had been avoided and the running time had been shortened, then Maharshi would have been the King! Yet, we could watch the film for the performances!
