 It’s not the first time that Indian cinema has tried to address a prevalent social issue through commercially entertaining means. And that is exactly what Maharshi does – going from being the story of a man who wants to dream beyond his means to someone who will go on to be the people’s saviour, even if it’s not something he actively seeks out. 

Rishi (Mahesh Babu) climbs the corporate ladder hard and fast till he’s the CEO of a company called Origins. It has always been his dream to achieve success and to not be like his father (Prakash Raj) whom he views as a failure. So much so, that his fear of failure keeps pushing him to do better than he ever wants to. But he soon finds out it is his college friend Ravi (Allari Naresh) to whom he owes his success. Seeking out his old friend at Ramavaram, Rishi is pushed into something far more than just repaying a debt he owes.


Maharshi is a film that, while commercially entertaining, is hard to describe. One moment you’re looking at a man ascending to the role of a CEO and the other you’re laughing along with three friends being silly at college. The third moment you find yourself being pushed, just like Rishi, into something much bigger than you bargained for, something much bigger than him no matter how important he is. While Vamshi Paidipally manages to pull off the tale of a successful man being humbled by something as simple as a farm land for the most part, he unfortunately fills it with commercial fillers which prove to be a drawback.
