Here's what Times Of India has to say about Mahanati - Bursting with life and later fading away to death, this has to be one of Keerthy’s best performances till date. She is ably supported by Dulquer playing Gemini Ganeshan, a man whose intentions are never truly known. You fall for his charms and believe him as much as she does when he calls her ‘ammadi’, and your heart breaks probably as much as hers did when he turns the tables on her out of jealously for her thriving career even as his fortunes fade. Critics are of the review that this movie is an experience - Watching ‘Mahanati’ is an experience one won’t forget soon as it will make you walk away with a heavy heart, mourning for a great artiste whose life was wasted and lost. Tears will be shed, claps will be heard, goose bumps will be felt – all in reverence and in tribute to the Mahanati.
According to Mirchi9, the core of the film is the love story between Savithri and Gemini Ganesan - The real deal is the emotional core story involving Savitri and Gemini Ganesan. It is a love story and a regular one at that. It is also instantly relatable. And when the actors generate chemistry on such lines, one is immediately engrossed in the narrative. The more we get to know about the love story, the more we understand that movie world is just a backdrop. As we move further into the narrative, the setup becomes a character of its own, and the world comes alive.
Telugu360 can't stop gushing about Keerthy Suresh - Mahanati Savitri took birth as Keerthy Suresh is an understatement because such was the grace with which Keerthy carried herself as Savitri. Re-rendition of iconic scenes from Savitri garu’s hit films are pleasant retro experience. First half of this film is very good. In second half, due to pathos in the legendary actor’s life, the narration slows down but emotions work out. Throughout the movie the director keeps you connected with the proceedings.
