Mahanati/ Nadigaiyar Thilagam Movie Review:
Keerthy Suresh as Mahanati Savitri justified her role. Her performance is the main highlight of the film. Dulquer Salmaan, Samantha Akkineni and Vijay Devarakonda performed well. Jr NTR, Mohan Babu, Krish and many actors’cameo roles are also among the big attractions of the movie. Although, it is the second movie for the Nag Ashwin he made the Mahanati with so much ease and confidence. Overall, a good movie in recent times.
Samantha & Vijay Devarakonda Performance.
