Sarileru Neekevvaru starring Mahesh Babu and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles, Sarileru Neekevvaru is an action-packed comedy film in Telugu. Sarileru Neekevvaru follows Babu’s life as an army major who’s on a mission in Kurnool and also tracks his mishaps in love. The plot takes a serious turn after he uncovers a murder. This film also stars Vijayashanti, Prakash Raj and Rajendra Prasad in pivotal roles and was well-received, globally. It accumulated Rs 237.1 crore (world gross), according to IMDb.
Worth watching for Mahesh Babu and Vijayashanthi’s performances
With Sarileru Neekevvaru, Anil Ravipudi brings back the old Mahesh Babu, someone who played cocky characters that fought, danced, saved the day and delivered speeches seeped in morality. There’s enough drama, emotion and most importantly, looming danger in the film (until Mahesh Babu saves the day) to fuel the wafer-thin story, but Anil is so caught up in weaving two mismatched story-lines together that he forgets to keep the repetitiveness in check. He banks on you to suspend disbelief for the most part and given as how the film doesn’t take itself too seriously in the first place, it might work for some.

Mahesh Babu film is utterly disappointing
Let’s get this straight. Consent and choice are two things that don’t matter in this film. We see Rashmika playing a typical ‘loosu ponnu’ (read: A mindless heroine who acts like a kid) who keeps stalking Mahesh Babu. In short, she is playing what heroes have played over the years. She hugs him and makes inappropriate comments without taking into consideration if he likes it or not. Men or women, no means no.
