Mahanati, the Telugu biopic on legendary actress Savitri continues to get rave reviews from all corners. The movie was released last day to overwhelming response from the audience. Social medias are abuzz with congratulatory posts for the makers for coming up with such a fitting tribute for the great actress. Filmmakers like Atlee, Vamsi Paidipally and many others had lauded director Nag Ashwin and his team for Mahanati.
All the lead actors in the movie – Keerthy Suresh, Dulquer Salmaan and Samantha – have reportedly given their career best performances. Dulquer, who is making his Telugu debut, is being showered with appreciation from the Telugu audience. Ace filmmaker SS Rajamouli tweeted about Dulquer’s performance and declared himself as a fan. The director posted,
Keerthy Suresh’s potrayal of Savitri garu is one of the finest performances I’ve ever seen. It is not just imitating. She brought the legendry actress back to life. Dulquer Salman is absolutely fantastic. I am his fan now. Congratulations Nag Ashwin and Swapna. Your belief, persistence and determination are remarkable. #Mahanati
Reciprocating the love, Dulquer replied back about how much it means for him to see such kind words from someone like Rajamouli. He has written,
I’m literally a fanboy of yours sir. This coming from you is such a huge deal for me ! Thank you so much for the kind words and text. Eternally grateful !
Mahanati is a movie centred around the life of Savitri. The narrative follows her life from the 1940s to 1980s. Though the movie mostly revolves around Savitri’s life, Dulquer as Gemini Ganesan is one of the principal characters in the movie. Savitri was briefly married to Gemini Ganesan and the movie shows some lesser known details about their relationship.
Mahanati’s Tamil (Nadigayar Thilagam) and Malayalam (Mahanadi) versions are slated for release on May 11.
