Mahaniti - the Unknown story

Mahaniti was directed by Nag Ashwin to depict the South India's Drama Queen, the Legend Mrs. Savitri. This retelling of the legend's past paved way to many truths. it is never an easy job to take a biopic of someone who was in a lot of controversies, but Nag Ashwin did an excellent job. The casting were accurate and well received.

The story of a tiny girl Savitri (Keerthy Suresh) whose life turns when she gets casted for a huge film is where every negative aspect of her life begins. Falling in love with a married man, Gemini Ganeshan (Dulquer Salman) Savitri's life turns wrong in so many ways. This controversial plot was well executed with the main focus on Savitri as a Legend who's legacy was falsely forbidden.

Mickey J. Meyer's music was a boon to the biopic. The supporting characters, Samantha Ruth prabhu, Vijay Devarakonda and the 70's 80's 90's sets were hugely appreciated. The method of showing famous Savitri movies with Keerthy Suresh was excellent. A big kudos to Keerthy Suresh for exhibiting a Legend's facial expressions perfectly.

The Biopic is very much recommended. Every woman who watched the movie found it very inspiring. The legend’s real truth brightened the hearts of the old fans. Enjoy the emotional, inspiring ride with family and friends.
