- Mahesh Babu’s Performance
- Some Emotional Scenes
- Dialogues and Technical Values
- Lengthy Runtime
- Predictable story
Slow paceVerdict: Overall Maharshi is an innocent drama it has a strong script with a very good social message. The thin storyline is stretched into three hours runtime with many subplots and several predictable moments. The movie first half is well with Mahesh seen in a new avatar and light-hearted comedy, College episode and some emotional scenes in the first half are pretty good. But the second half is not narrated in an engaging manner and it feels slow paced, lengthy and has shades of movies like Srimanthudu, Bharat Ane Nenu. The film is good for Mahesh fans and others just go in with low expectations.
