Maharshi Movie Review

Maharshi Movie Review

Release Date: Thursday 9th May 2019

Cast: Mahesh Babu, Pooja Hegde, Allari Naresh, Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh, Jaya Sudha and others


Rishi (Mahesh Babu) is a successful CEO of a company named Origin in New York. Some of his old friends gather together when he assumes charge and he goes down the memory lane, recalling his college days, his friends Pooja (Pooja Hegde) and Ravi (Allari Naresh).
Rishi initially helps Ravi during his college days. He breaks up with Pooja and has a small fight with Ravi and leaves for USA to pursue a better life.

His professor reveals a secret about Ravi. Repenting Rishi comes back to India looking for Ravi. Rishis path and journey in life changes.


One expects the 25th movie to be special in every way. Maharshi being Mahesh Babus 25th movie promises the same as it begins on a high note that is mounted on a lavish scale.

Director Vamshi Paidipally has presented Mahesh Babu in two variations in the beginning, that of a corporate guy and a college student. This mixing has worked out well.

The basic point a guy who went on chasing success and money over relations in the initial point of life and later in the second point he realizes the mistake when he learns that his success is result of someones sacrifice seems interesting on paper.

Director Vamshi Paidiapally begins the film much like Aamir Khans 3 Idiots but the movie soon turns into a totally different one and the narration in the later part goes wrong on multiple levels.

In the beginning of the interval, it is presented that Nareshs village is being grabbed by a corporate company for a pipeline project and the mission is to save the village and the farmers lands. But as the film progresses, it moves to different path and ends up lecturing on various issues related to farming which ends up like a thesis on farmers issues.

Like Mahesh Babu gave us lecture in Srimanthudu and Bharat Ane Nenu on two different subjects, here too he talks at length (again a big press meet sequence much like in Bharat Ane Nenu) about farmers. This in turn has turned into a predictable fare.

The journey has totally gone on a wrong path towards the end. Moreover, Rishi drives very slowly and reaches to the end at 3 hours runtime.

This is what happens when the writers or directors copy a successful movie (3 Idiots) and try hard not to be called copycats, they eventually include things that dont fit in the story they copied.

While the first half is largely decent, the second half works in some places and bores in other places and goes unevenly.

Mahesh Babu is presented as CEO of an American company but his characterization is totally cinematic, nowhere has it mirrored real life with him having battalion of assistants, gangs. The CEO even shouts at his managers as if they were beggars. In the second half, Jagapathi Babu the main villain is too passive.

All in all, Maharshi has its moments and is shot in a glossy way, presents some good instants but the journey is riddled with many bumps.
