Shirdi Sai review


The movie is based on the real life incident of Saibaba of Shirdi, who is considered as sathguru and God by scores of Hindus. Saibaba of Shiridi appears as a small boy in small town named Shiridi as a fakir. He will be addressed as Sai by Mahalsapathi. Later, he makes Dwarakamai, a masjid as his abode and resides there. He will solve the problems of the people and gives holy ash as medicine. Therefore, people consider him not just as a local hakeem (local doctor) but God. A large number of people start visiting Dwarakamai for seeking blessing of Saibaba of Shirdi. Saibaba tells to one of his devotees to protect his body for three days and leaves his breathe. Later, he raises after three days and puts a check to the foul mouth, who demand to cremate him.

Saibaba tells English man that he would live up to hundred years, who will come to check the holiness of the godman. Saibaba unfortunately leaves his body after he takes the illness of Tatya Patil, whom he considered as his nephew.

Analysis :

Shirdi Sai review

There's everything positive about Shiridi Sai. K Raghavendra Rao won the hearts of Telugu audience yet another time with this movie while Nagarjuna gave extra ordinary performance as Saibaba. The famous devotee Nanavali's character was played by Sai Kumar, whose performance was undoubtedly outstanding. All songs of the movie were looking good on the screen especially the first song Okkade apparently touched the hearts of the audience. Many told us they literally felt they were seeing Saibaba in real and not on screen. Thanks to Nagarjuna for mastering the acting techniques. Cinematography of Shiridi Sai was good. Music scored by Keeravani is another asset to this film.

Shirdi Sai review

Nagarjuna made film critics awestruck with his splendid performance. Sarath Babu, Sai Kumar as Nanavali, Kamalini Mukherjee as Sundari Bai, Srikanth as Dasaguna and Srihari as Wales did justice to their roles and looked perfect. Ali and Bramhanandam too did well.

Final Word: It's a tale of godman, Saibaba of Shirdi.
