Real life couple Naga Chaitanya and Samantha played husband and wife again in 'Majili' movie after 'Manam.' 'Majili' is the fourth outing together for Sam and Chay after 'YMC,' 'Manam' and 'Autonagar Surya' whereas their first outing together after their wedding. The movie is undoubtedly one of the most awaited films in Tollywood at the moment. 'Ninnu Kori' fame Shiva Nirvana wielded the megaphone for this project. Harish Peddi and Sahu Garapati under Shine Screens banner bankrolled this project. After grabbing the attention of the audience with the teaser, trailer and outstanding songs, the movie has finally released today on April 5th, 2019. Let's see how far the film succeeded in impressing the audience.
Poorna (Naga Chaitanya) aspires to become a star cricketer. He falls for naval officer (Atul Kulkarni)'s daughter Anshu (Divyansha Kaushik). Their relationship ends up in a mess, and finally, they part ways with each other in an inevitable situation. Later, Poorna marries Sravani (Samantha), but he fails to come out of Anshu's memories. What happens then? How did Sravani change Poorna's life? What happens finally in the end? Forms the story of the movie.
Naga Chaitanya's incredible performance is one of the major plus points for the film. We can see that the actor has shown significant improvement in acting when compared to his previous movies. The way he has handled his challenging role is inspiring. Samantha played a substantial girl role who is madly in love with her husband. Despite playing an emotional character, Samantha has delivered her best. Divyansha Kaushik's performance added more beauty for the film. She fits into the role perfectly well. Rao Ramesh got an exciting role in the movie, and he did his best. Posani Krishna Murali's energetic performance never failed to grab attention. Subbaraju did a decent job. The rest of the cast including Suhas, Sudarshan, etc. made their presence felt.
Director Shiva Nirvana has already proved his exceptional storytelling skills with 'Ninnu Kori' movie, and the director has proved the same again with this movie as well. Shiva Nirvana should get applauded for the way he has narrated the script. His execution is on point and hasn't tried to add any unnecessary scenes. Every character will have their importance in the story and deliver a different emotion. Production values by Shine Screens are extremely high and lavish. Music by Gopi Sundar is outstanding. Thaman's background score is one of the significant highlights behind the film. His background score helps the audience to get involved more into the story. Cinematography by Vishnu Sarma is beautiful. His camera angles are excellent. Editing by Prawin Pudi is neat.
The movie starts on a lighter note. The entire first half is realistic, and the love story between Naga Chaitanya and Divyansha is showcased beautifully. Their chemistry will grab their attention. The first half is blended with youthful elements like friendship, love, emotion, etc. The story becomes intense in the second half, and especially in emotional scenes, Samantha's performance will win critical acclaim. The twist in the second half will create curiosity among the audience. The emotional sequences between Naga Chaitanya and Samantha in the pre-climax are handled delicately and are heart touching. To conclude, 'Majili' is a must watch the movie for all sections of the audience.
