3 Reasons To Watch: Mahanati (Telugu)

Releasing in Tamil as Nadigaiyar Thilagam, Mahanati starring Keerthi Suresh in the titular role is directed by Nag Ashwin. The movie, produced by C Ashwini Dutt under the Vyjayanthi Movies banner, also features Dulquer Salmaan, Samantha Akkineni and Vijay Devarakonda in pivotal roles. The music of the film is by Mickey J Meyer.

  1. Mahanati is a movie to watch out for because it is the first biopic made on one of the top actresses of South cinema. Savithri, who was a name to reckon with in Telugu and Tamil cinema, was considered one of the most talented and versatile actors of her time. Her popularity and fame was comparable to her male counterparts like N T Rama Rao and Sivaji Ganesan. Hence, the name Mahanati, which means ‘great actress’.
  2. The casting of Keerthi Suresh as Savithri along with Dulquer Salmaan as Gemini Ganesan created much curiosity about how the two actors would look together on screen. But the release of the teaser and stills from the movie proved that the makers have not only succeeded in capturing the looks and charm of the era, but the actors’ on-screen chemistry too is impeccable. From being reel-life co-stars to a real life couple, the relationship between Savithri and Ganesan is one of the most talked-about cinematic love stories.
  3. The movie boasts a stellar cast and it is a treat to watch so many famous and talented people in one film. Besides Samantha and Vijay Devarakonda, who play pivotal roles, the buzz is that Anushka Shetty and Naga Chaitanya will also be seen in special cameos.
