Story: A boy born around Indian independence and named after his freedom fighter Mahatma Gandhi – Gandhi Mahaan (Vikram) grows up to be a school teacher, but he feels he is not free and that he is chained to the ideals and strict laws laid down by his wife (Simran). She is heading to North India with their son. Later, Mahaan helps his friend Satya (Bobby Simha) in his liquor business. After twenty years, Gandhi Mahaan’s son Dada (Dhruv) comes to Vizag and brings challenges for the father. What happens next shapes the rest of the story.

Performance: Chiyaan Vikram delivered her fantastic performance. He plays Gandhi Mahaan, who was born into a family of freedom fighters. Fed up with a monotonous life, Mahaan decides to break the rules and enjoy his life. Simran tries the role of Nachi, his wife, it’s okay. He doesn’t have much to do, but succeeds in the role of Nachi. Dhruv as Dadabhai Naoroji aka Dada performs well. He is seen on a mission to eliminate his father and his business. Mahaan is Vikram’s one-man show and he easily steals it. Bobby Simhaa’s makeover is highlighted.

Technical: Mahaan’s story lacks freshness except for a long but gripping argument between Gandhi Mahaan and his wife. The Mahaan film benefits from the cinematography that elevates ordinary writing, but it feels like slick packaging. Mahaan is a visually stunning film. Costumes and looks, especially from Vikram, are marked by swag. The action sequences between Vikram and Dhruv are wonderfully choreographed. Production value and BGM are good.

To analyse: Karthik Subbaraj Mahaan’s magnum opus ends up testing viewers’ patience as the cat-and-mouse game you’re watching is hardly intriguing. The focal point of the film is about prohibition and the alcohol mafia, but the film is a gangster drama that revolves around father and son.

Evaluation : 2.75/5
