We all know that Tamil Nadu heroes have a good craze in our Tollywood. Even if Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Suriya, and Vijay are not in the range, Siva Karthikeyan is the heroine who is well known to the Telugu Desam audience. Films like Doctor and Don in which he played the hero were dubbed in Telugu and received good success.
Since then, a large market has been created for his films in Tollywood. His latest movie 'Mahaveerudu' has been released worldwide in Telugu and Tamil languages. Now we are going to see in this review whether this movie impressed the audience or not.
Mahaveerudu Movie Story:
Satya (Shiva Karthikeyan) hails from Vizag and works as a cartoonist for a leading daily. By nature, Satya is very shy, mother behind child Annamata. He lives a very normal life with his mother (Sarita) and sister Raji (Manisha Blesli). However, Minister Jayasimha (Miskin) demolishes their own houses where they have been living for many years and forcibly sends them to apartments built by the government.
But every day there is a problem in this apartment which is built with very poor quality. These apartments are going to collapse. On the other hand, Minister Jaya Simha is doing illegalities and injustices on the premises of these same apartments. Satya's mother, who cannot tolerate any small injustice, burns with rage at these injustices. Then why did Satya control her? What is the relationship between Jayasimha and his father's death? The rest is the story.
Mahaveerudu Movie Analysis:
It will be correct if the screenplay is written according to the genre of some stories. If you put comedy in a story that should be serious, it will be annoying..? Exactly the same happened in the case of this movie. The entire first half was a fun workout. Yogi Babu's comedy is the highlight of this movie. But the second half is not as interesting as the first half. The graph decreases for each scene.
Director Madonne Ashwin has made many emotional scenes with laughter. Demolition of own house is very painful for a middle-class family. The director could not portray that pain on the silver screen. Due to the lack of guts in the story, the roles of the rest of the artists except the roles of Siva Karthikeyan and Yogi Babu have faded away. Technically this film is not great either.
The documents of Aditi Shankar as the heroine and Sunil as the villain are also limited. Apart from that, Ravi Teja's voice-over by Akashvani is not very connective. The background music provided by Bharat Shankar was fine but the songs were not good at all. With a blockbuster first half and a below-average second half, this Maha Veerudu movie stands as an overall average movie.
Those who love Siva Karthikeyan's brand of comedy can watch this movie once time pass. People who don't like routine movies may stay away from this movie.
