Artists Performance : Sunil, Saloni, Nagineedu, Brahmaji make the best of the opportunities they have been given. Sunil not only cuts down on his typical dialogue delivery but also emotes with extreme innocence. Saloni has all the makings of a heroine, and one wonders why she hasn’t had many opportunities. Ramineedu, a first timer in Telugu, emotes with extreme goodness in hospitality scenes while he elevates himself to a typical Telugu cinema villain easily.
Ravi Teja’s voice for the bicycle is funny, and in some scenes he becomes an invisible actor. If there is someone claiming to put Telugu culture at the fore, they better look at this film. Telugu culture doesn’t become the vital part of the tale, but gets real value.
Analysis: Filmmaking is like cricket, more so for Telugu people. The moment you perform in one innings (read film), the second innings (next film) generates unnecessary hype inspite of having a different story and different demands. Nagarjuna after ‘Annammayya’, Krishna after ‘Alluri Seetarama Raju’ must have realized it the hard way. This is where Rajamouli does well. He can now take the burden of ‘Magadheera’ off his shoulders and yet get a good hit with this film. He can sleep better now. Go watch 'Maryada Ramanna' with your family. This is a good Telugu commercial cinema.
Movie Rating: 3.5/5
