I am glad that this one is Super Star Mahes Babu’s 25th Movie.This one is like his ‘Swades’. I felt that the second half was bit lenthy, but it was good. I ended up liking this one. It has current relevant social problem : farmers and their issues. You don’t need to be highly educated to understand where are we going? I mean with ever increasing population and with it increased desires/greed to have more property than it is required.
Agriculture lands have been converted to concerte jungles…cities are spreading its tentacles like gaint octopuses…farmers are ending their lives..farm lands are disappearing, but who really cares? As long as food is available no one is really bothered. One day, the farmer who cultivates and provides food to us would be extinct. Farm lands may end up in our history books. Then what would we feed ourselves? Currency notes would become useless once food shortage hits the peak.
I was surprised to hear audience discuss about farm lands and farming while coming out of the theatre. I feel any movie that entertains and gives food for thought is a good movie. I think Maharshi has achieved that! If the first half of the movie is about friendship between Mahesh and Naresh. The last 45 minutes picks up the tempo of the movie with the social message. Songs are let down.
My rating is 3.5/5. Recommended.
