Maharshi is the life story of Rishi Kumar (Mahesh Babu) in three different phases of his life. After his successful journey as a student, he reaches new heights as a businessman set in USA. Soon he returns back to the country for a social cause. The film narrates about the real reasons for his drastic moves and how Rishi stands as a support for the farmers. Watch Maharshi to know about what all happens in his journey in this core social drama.
The first half of Maharshi is packed with loads of entertainment for youth. The college episodes came out really well and Mahesh's look, mannerism are a treat for his fans. Though the film dips down at times, the entire first half looks packed with right amounts of entertainment and emotions. Mahesh Babu stuns the audience in a new look which will be remembered. The college episodes and the family drama along with Mahesh's character were penned well. On the whole, the first half of Maharshi sounds decent and the audience waits for the second half.
The second half of Maharshi is long, slow paced and is laced with an emotional drama that conveys a message for the society. The contemporary issue was well narrated on screen despite of the slow pace. Mahesh and the entire list of actors delivered their best. The montage songs have come out really well and are emotional connect of the film. The press meet episode and the emotional climax are the highlights of second half. Maharshi looks lengthy when it comes to runtime.
Mahesh Babu is a real treat to watch on screen and he delivers his best performance till date. He thrills the audience in triple shades and is a treat to watch. Allari Naresh is the major emotional connect for Maharshi and his role will be remembered. Pooja Hegde shines in the assignment and she performed well in the first half. But when it comes to second half, she has nothing much. Jagapathi Babu is the lead antagonist and as usual he delivers his best. Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh and Vennela Kishore have been decent.
Maharshi discusses about the current education system and how farmers are ignored in this modern life. The screenplay and dialogues have been decent. The cinematography work and the background score along with the production values are the major highlights. The editing should have been better and the songs are just ok. Vamshi Paidipally managed to step out with one more decent film through Maharshi.
Maharshi Final Word
Mahesh Babu stuns in three different shades and Maharshi is all about Vamshi's take on the current education system and the struggling farmers. A decent one time watch.
