Mahesh Babu once again came up with a gripping performance. His comedy timing, performance in emotional scenes would attract many.
Allari Naresh has got a substantial role in the film and he does the required justice to it. Pooja Hegde looked extremely gorgeous on the screen. Other actors like Jayasudha, Prakash Raj, Jagapathi babu, Rao Ramesh, Sai Kumar, Meenakshi Dixit, Vennala Kishore, Nasar, Prudhvi, Bhramaji, Mukesh Rushi in the movie justified their roles.
Direction, Screenplay: Good
Editing: Could have been better
Production values: Good
The fun elements, college atmosphere and comedy scenes have taken the first half of Maharshi on a breezy mood. While the second half weighs more on emotional moments and farmers problems, Mahesh is at his best in such scenes. He carried the entire film on his shoulders.
Though the whole second half of the movie was based on farming, which is a good cause, the length of the second half could have been trimmed to make it crispier (it is 3 hrs long). The director maintained the thought provoking concept throughout the second half by not adding unwanted commercial elements.
Director highlighted a worthy cause, but if the length of the movie is reduced, Maharshi can be more enjoyable.
