Majili, starring Naga Chaitanya and Samantha in the lead roles has attained a lot of buzz and attention, thanks to impressive teasers and trailer. The film hit the theaters today amidst sky-high expectations. Scroll down to check how the film fares.
Purna Chandra Rao (Naga Chaitanya) has a troubled past. His ambition of becoming a cricketer hits a dead end, and even his love life lets him down.
Amidst this confusion and anxiety, he gets wedded to Sravani(Samantha). However, he struggles to cope up with the challenges life throws at him, despite his wife standing strong by his side. Will he eventually get over these hurdles? What sort of impact does Sravani show on his life? The answers to these questions are to be catched on the bug screen.
This is easily Naga Chaitanya’s career-best performance till date. He excelled in the role of a troubled youngster and a struggling husband. The Akkineni hero strikes a chord this time.
Samantha is also a standout performer and her sparkling chemistry with Chai is a treat to the eye. Their combination scenes have come out really well, and that adds a whole lot of depth to the film.
The other supporting cast, Posani Krishnamurali, Sudharshan, and Suhaas have come up with good performances.
The director, Shiva Nirvana knowns how to extract sensible performances and excels in this trade. His realistic approach and near to life narrative is most certainly the biggest asset to the film. However, he took cinematic liberty in the second half.
Music by Gopi Sundar is good. The songs have been presented well on the screen. Thaman is a worthy addition to the technical team as his background score adds another layer to this flick.
The cinematography is neat and easy on the eyes. Production values are adequate, and so was art direction.
Majili is a near to emotional heart drama that keeps things as realistic as possible, except for a plot twist in the second half. The film has outstanding performances from the lead cast, and they carry the film on their shoulders. The last thirty minutes of the film are engaging and appealing. This film will connect well with the family audience, and that is for sure.
