Plus Points in this movie

To start things first, Majili is filled with some memorable performances which elevate the film nicely. Chay Akkineni is a revelation as he gives his career best performance. With this film, Chay proves that he is a director’s actor who molds himself according to the character. The way he showcases the pain with his serious emotions is the best part of the film. Chay is superlative and impresses you from the first scene itself.

Samantha once again proves that it is not the length of the role but the depth of it to leave an impression. She, as Shravani, takes the film to another level in the second half. Be it her body language, dressing sense and sacrificing behavior, Sam showcases it all and wins many hearts.The second half is where the real action happens as superb family emotions take center stage. Even though Sam and Chay do not have many dialogues, the manner in which they carry the pain is showcased in a superb manner. Suhas, the new actor who played Chay’s friend is impressive.

Minus Points in this movie

Even though the film has many feel good moments, the story is old and predictable. There is nothing novel and has a hangover of several Hindi films in the past.

Yet another drawback is that the film is painfully slow at times and can get on the nerves for those who look for sheer entertainment. Director Shiva takes his own time to build the story in the first half and because of this the film starts on a slow note as way too many cricket scenes are showcased.
