When Savithri was approached by Chakrapani for convincing her to accept role in Mayabazar, she was shown hearing the song "aduthu paduthu pani chestunte" in radio. That song was from the film Thodikodallu which was signed and filmed much later to Mayabazar, though released two months earlier. See more »
I am not one of the best describer but here it goes. The movie was beautiful and it teared up people. One main thing to keep in mind is that don't expect Keerthi Suresh to be exactly like Savithri. In my opinion Keerthi's acting was perfect, in few scenes it was as if it was Savithri herself.
Dulqar Salman acting as Gemini Ganesan was good. They way he would call her "Amadi" with affection was so beautiful. Samantha and Vijay Devarakonda, they
did their best, the comedy was plesant. I love how the late 80's is shot, it was as if we are watching 80's movie.
There were many actors whom I didn't expect to be in the movie but did well, even Sandeep Vanga was there. Shalini Pandey has not so big but imporatant role which she did perfectly. Ending credits showed old pictures and new pictures imitating old pictures.
The way it would change from present to past is fluid. They did their best to fit everything in three hours. The costumes were beautiful. Director, producers and everyone else did such a good job. They did their research, I read how they spent long time recreating the costumes and jewelry.
If the team is reading this, you people did your best. I haven't seen old people, my grandparent's generation coming to theaters to watch movies but there were people of all age groups, especially older people.
Please don't miss this movie. This is movie of the year so far.
