It is known news that the movie ‘Mahanati’ is a biopic on the legendary actress Savitri and it is also true that many from this generation will have a faint idea of who she was and what her legacy was. The timing of ‘Mahanati’ could not have been better and now, there are reports that this movie is awakening a new genre of audience.
Normally, the senior citizens wait for their favorite movies to come in the television channels and then watch it. They are not really keen to go all the way to theatres and watch them for various reasons. But now many senior citizens are keen to come to theatres and the reason for that is ‘Mahanati’ and the attachment they have with Savitri.
If there is a good influx of these senior citizens into the theatres, it would become a big revolution in the business of cinema. Normally, it is the 18 to 30 age group folks who are the first and second week audience but this time it appears the senior citizens are going to outnumber everyone. If that happens, ‘Mahanati’ will become a trendsetter.
