Ashwin's take on the Saviritri story successfully explores a complex woman and her turbulent journey, brought to life by an unforgettable performance from Keerthy Suresh.

Keerthy Suresh completely owns her character and delivers a powerful performance.

The four best things to happen to Nag's film are Dulquer Salmaan, Keerthy Suresh, Samantha Akkineni and the costume designers. These three actors are in top form and equally shoulder this film.

Tears will be shed, claps will be heard, goose bumps will be felt - all in reverence and in tribute to the Mahanati. But the best part about this film is it will make you smile.

The 176-minute movie is evenly paced, and the director ensures that the cameo-heavy screenplay is not reduced to a series of entries and exits.

In the grand scheme of things, Mahanati is a story that needed to be said and it found a beautiful voice through director Nag Ashwin and actor Keerthy Suresh.
