The First Look and Video teaser of Maharshi, Mahesh Babu’s upcoming film was released on the occasion of Telugu Super star’s 43rd Birthday. Mahesh Babu has tweeted the first look picture in his Twitter account at midnight and the video teaser was released 2 hours later.
After the success of Bharat Ane Nenu, Mahesh Babu’s New project, Maharshi is being directed by Vamshi Paidipally who had directed Brindavanam, Yevadu, etc., in the past. The film star’s Pooja Hegde in the lead role and Allari Naresh has been roped in for a prominent role. The music for the film is being composed by Devi Sri Prasad.
While much of the details about the film were not revealed in the first look or the teaser the film’s unique logo has given us a lot to deduce. The film bears a tagline that says “join the journey of Rishi” which clearly states that the Prince’s name in the film is going to be Rishi coinciding with Mahesh’s tweet “Embarking on my New Journey as Rishi”.
In the background of the name Maharshi, which is in faded grey and white, the top left corner shows the shadowed image of a village with palm trees and small houses whereas the bottom right corner shows the image of a city with buildings. Even the secondary consonant “Shi” in the word “Maharshi” bears the image of the statue of liberty at its peak.
While the significance of these images in the background of the logo has never been mentioned anywhere, we are pretty sure that their prominence might become obvious after the film comes out.
The video teaser displayed a message in the start wishing Mahesh Babu on his Birthday and then went on to introduce the character with the text “Meet Rishi”. Later in the teaser, Rishi was seen walking in the corridor of a college holding a laptop and smiling at a girl who smiles at him while passing by. Rishi’s character as was seen can be deduced as anything a Professor or a student. Mahesh was sporting a cool slight beard completely different from his previous film Bharat Ane Nenu.
The news is that Maharshi’s first schedule of shooting will be in Dehradun and thereafter the actor will be heading to Goa to shoot the next schedule.
