Cast and Performance

Akkineni Naga Chaitanya has done a terrific job as Poorna. He looks convincing in both his youthful and elderly roles. He looks too good in his younger role. Samantha Akkineni is the one who steals the limelight with her fantastic performance as Sravani. She has given her best and this role would be her second best after Mahanati. Divyansha Kaushik is nice in her role as Anshu. Rao Ramesh is superb as the father of Poorna and Posani Krishna Murali is good. Chaibisket Suhas and Sudarshan are good as sidekicks of hero. All other actors are good in their given roles.

Writing Department

The story of Majili is filled with love and the screenplay is written well. The dialogues are good.

Technical Departments

The songs composed by Gopi Sunder are nice. They are already in the playlists of youth. SS Thaman did fine work in composing background score. The cinematography is nice and editing could be better to make the film racy. Action department and art department has done nice work. The production values of Shine Screen are grand.

Slow pace

Verdict

Majili is the story of a husband realizing the love and value of his wife after his heartbreak. The first half of the movie is okay with a few entertaining sequences. This half has some unnecessary moments and they could be chopped out. The second half of the movie where Samantha enters and the real movie what the audience expected movie starts. Towards the climax, it bores more and entertains in the climax. Director Siva Nirvana who did terrific work with Ninnu Kori has done a pretty average work with this movie. This movie purely runs on the performances of the actors and writing is pretty weak. The buzz that surrounds ChaiSam and the holidays would become boon for this movie which attracts families to theatres. If you expect to watch a film like Ninnu Kori, Majili might disappoint. To sum up, Majili is purely a movie to watch for ChaiSam and one should bear a few boring sequences to get the right feels.
