Vijay (Siddharth) is back in the story and the proceedings are predictable at this point.
— Smitha (Anu Emmanuel) is back in Arjun’s life, but only for a short period of time.
— Maha Samudram second half began. Arjun (Sharwanand) takes over sea smuggling with Chunchu Mama (Jagapathi Babu) by his side.
Report first half year:
The presence of Sharwanand and Siddharth looks refreshing on screen, and so does the rest of the cast, which is a great asset for Maha Samudram. Each is spot on.
Aditi Rao Hydari gets the steamy and juicy part as far as the first half of Maha Samudram goes. Anu Emmanuel has been relegated to some scenes.
— Vijay (Siddharth) unexpectedly gets into trouble with a powerful villain who changes the lives of both friends. Maha Samudram goes to recess.
— Arjun and Vijay’s love tracks are created along with the friendship story.
— Chunchu Mama (Jagapathi Babu) enters the show as a sea smuggler. The intros from main villain Dhanjay and Gooni Babji (Rao Ramesh) follow.
— Maha Samudram opens with a flashback of Arjun (Sharwanand). Arjun and Vijay (Siddharth) are good friends. Vijay prepares for a police job.
Maha Samudram US Premier Updates Coming Soon. Keep an eye on this page.
Maha Samudram with a massive cast consisting of Sharwanand, Siddharth, Aditi Rao Hydari, Anu Emmanuel, Jagapathi Babu and Rao Ramesh, will be released on October 14. RX100 fame Ajay Bhupati leads the project, while Anil Sunkara produces it.
From the day of the project announcement, there was a good buzz about Maha Samudram. The recent trailers have taken it to the next level.
Telugu cinema audiences have long been bereft of a real mass commercial entertainer. We had one for Sankranthi and another recently a month ago. The former scored big, while the latter faltered. But there were huge openings for both films. It means the audience is hungry for a mass entertainer, but it has to be good.
Maha Samudram has done everything right so far. There is a huge cast, an excellent big budget feel, the music is good and finally it has a festival release. All it needs now is the right conversation. If Maha Samudram performs on that front, the masses will no doubt take it to the next level.
Ajay Bhupati and his team delivered a blockbuster hit. We must see how valid those words are when Maha Samudram appears on the screens on October 14.
Mirchi9 brings you the ‘first-on-net’ Maha Samudram review, as always, with the utmost genuineness and honesty.
