Mahanati exemplifies benefits of championing good content, paving the way for other Tollywood biopics

The biopic style has lastly taken over Tollywood and the business could not have requested for a better start than Mahanati. Savitri’s biopic not solely provides the style a brand new lease but in addition brings within the a lot wanted shift in content material for Telugu cinema.

Now, Tollywood has seen fairly a number of motion pictures within the latest previous like Awe, Pelli Choopulu and Arjun Reddy, which have experimented with narrative fashion and content material. These movies have been appreciated for transferring away from the cliche that the business has change into. Nevertheless the movies to storm the field workplace have been star-studded initiatives, like Bharat Ane Nenu and Rangasthalam

Keerthy Suresh and Dulquer Salmaan in Mahanati.

This is likely one of the motive’s why Mahanati is a nice shock. Whereas the credit score for the movie’s good story positively goes to the inspiring lifetime of Savitri, to have the ability to translate that into good and pure cinema, the way in which Nag Ashwin did, is uncommon and value a point out. Proper from the casting to the screenplay, from the music to the comedian timing, Mahanati is a reminder of what good content material can do to a movie.

Although Keerthy Suresh dominates the display screen for probably the most half, Mahanati is as a lot about its supporting forged. Be it Samantha’s position as a stammering journalist, Dulquer Salman’s charming portrayal of Gemini Ganesan and Rajendra Prasad’s impeccable humor — everybody match the invoice. Nag Ashwin takes the story of an inspiring actress and presents it within the method it is purported to be: nothing much less or nothing extra. Savitri’s life was additionally reportedly extra tragic than what we witness within the movie and her relationship with Gemini Ganesan was extra strained than showcased within the movie. However the director sticks to the aim of Mahanati: to not sensationalise Savitri’s life.

The perfect a part of Mahanati is the truth that the movie is just not over-dramatised.

For a lot of cinema goers Mahanati is an expertise of types. There may be nothing about Savitri we haven’t heard or probably even seen in the film. For an actress who has labored in over 300 movies, Mahanati is a coronary heart warming ode. Whereas Ashwin initiatives the actress’ rise and fall, he additionally presents to us her chaotically lovely private life. Only a few movies in latest instances handle to impact you as soon as the curtain falls. Hours after watching the biopic, the impression stays. We’re nonetheless hymning these songs, coping from the tears and basking within the actress’ journey.

A nonetheless from Mahanati.

For a style that hasn’t been experimented a lot earlier than, Mahanati is a wonderful instance for the numerous biopics to return. Tollywood will see a few massive ticket biopics quickly: The NTR biopic; 1945, by which Rana Daggubati performs Subhash Chandra Bose; Yatra based mostly on late CM Rajasekhara Reddy; and Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy starring Chiranjeevi.

Nevertheless, it is solely in direction of the tip of Mahanati that we perceive how properly two ladies — Keerthy and Samantha — pioneer the movie. Each actresses have finally gotten their due in an industry dominated by male actors.

Mahanati as a complete does extra than simply leisure for the viewers: it is a basic instance of what a superb script can do to a movie. It is arduous to not biased in direction of such a movie.
