'Mahanati' vs 'NTR'

Hyderabad, January 10: In Tollywood, the biopic of Savitri Mahanati started the trend of biopics and others are following it. We must say that Mahanati is the trendsetter for all biopics which are coming after. The fact is without Mahanati , there would have been no biopics in Tollywood. In fact, Balakrishna has decided to make a biopic of NTR, after watching Mahanati only. He made NTR biopic within a year of Mahanati . Naturally, there are bound to be comparisons between Mahanati and Kathanayakudu .

NTR and Savitri were two different personalities to compare both the biopics. In fact, Savitri biopic has become a hit due to the flexed taking and gripping screenplay. It focused on some of the major events of Savitri’s life, but other roles were interlaced into the film very effectively.



Where Mahanati director Nag Ashwin showed his class, the same cannot be said about Krish. The buzz is that he has not fully succeeded in recreating NTR . Mahanati raked in about Rs 40 crore. Balayya Babu must do at least double this business.
