Here I am , straight from the theater giving a review on one of my ... infact , most favorite film ever -- Mayabazaar . This masterpiece is back five decades after its first release back in 1957 . The magic of this film is such that, though I had seen it over fifty times since my childhood (just like most of the telugu people of my age would have ) , I could not resist to get myself a ticket to watch it again . But this time its on the big screen and in color . My bow to the team of Goldstone Technologies who recreated this great film so meticulously in color , that we are forced to rethink whether the film was originally made in black n white or n color .
My favs of the film are Ghatotkacha ( S.V.Ranga Rao ) , Sesirekha ( Savitri ) and Lakshmana Kumara ( Relangi Venkata Ramaiah ) . I wonder if anyone could ever replace these magicians .Each and every artist has performed his/her best in the film and have also won numerous accolades besides the love and admiration of the audience of so many generations .
I'm a regular one to the theaters and could easily make out that this film attracted huge crowd of varied age groups and tastes than any other film I remember had .
Definitely , Mayabazaar has always been and will continue to be a favorite of all the telugu homes and hearts . Though you might have seen this one a number of times , its worth watching on the big screen and in well finished colors . Unfortunately , a couple of scenes and a song have been omitted in this version ( attributing it to the bad negative provided ) .
Its a must watch ; unless you want to regret later .
Have a great time watching the greatest telugu film ever ! :)
