At some point the story moves very slow.
Director Nag Ashwin and the team with a strong determination made this movie possible. They have done an in-depth research and is visible on the screen. The makers has made this movie with a passion. In this movie Keerthy Suresh has given an outstanding performance by putting a lot of effort into it. Savitri in her starting days was shown in a beautiful way. Then she marries Gemini Ganesan and due to some misunderstanding they depart their ways. Savitri then gets addicted to alcohol in this scene Keerthy Suresh performance is like for one moment we feel Savitri has reborn.
Apart from this Dulquer Salmaan as Gemini Ganesan has done justice to that role. Along with Savitri life story they have shown Madhuravani(Samantha) love story in a nice way. The other main cast in the movie did full justice to their roles. The makers Vyjanthi films have not comprised anywhere in terms of quality. Director Nag Ashwin with his second movie Mahanati has given a nice movie to tollywood which is appreciable.
