Poorna (Naga Chaitanya), son of a Railway employee Jagannatham (Rao Ramesh) in Visakhapatnam aspires to be a cricketer. Even as he makes progress and is on the verge of making it to the Railways Cricket team, he gets attracted to the daughter of Naval Officer Rajiv Kumar (Atul Kulkarni), Anshu (Divyansha Kaushik). 

His life takes shocking twists and turns and to find out more about them and their connection with Sravani (Samantha), clerk in Railways, enjoy Majili on silver screen. 


Naga Chaitanya attracted with his performance. He showed good variations as a youngster who aspires to be a cricketer and also in love with a girl. He also attracted with his performance as the heartbroken lover who couldn't get to terms marrying another girl after being forced to do so. However he could have come with more powerful expressions in the emotional scenes. 

Divyansha Kaushik on debut attracted with her looks and performed well. Samantha elevated the scenes with her emotional performance stealing the show. 

Rao Ramesh, Posani Krishna Murali, Atul Kulkarni and others performed according to their roles.


Gopi Sunder's music makes a good impact with situational songs. Thaman elevated the film with his background score. Editing of Pravin Pudi could have been better as there are many drags in the film. Vishnu Sharma beautified the film with his cinematography.

Shiva Nirvana could have been more realistic and avoided cinematic liberties and included few novel and interestic scenes as the story turned out to be extremely routine. Production values are good.

Minus Points

Routine story

Cinematic liberties


Lack of commercial elements


Shiva Nirvana who made his debut with Ninnu Kori, once again came to entertain movie lovers with youthful romantic emotional entertainer. He tried to be as realistic as possible without any commercial elements. Though the screenplay resembled similar to Ninnu Kori, he attracted with his narration.

The entire first half turns out to be romantic entertainer between Chaitu and Divyansha, while the second half turns out to be an emotional entertainer with Chaitu and Samantha. Few scenes and dialogues made a good impact on movie lovers. The entire first half sails through smoothly but second half scenes get repetitive and logics goes for a toss and the film comes to an abrupt completion after dragging in the pre climax. 

Shiva Nirvana's story is routine and seen many times on screen but he generated good interest with his screenplay and direction. Little bit of more creative narration could have made even powerful impact.  

Shiva Nirvana who tried to highlight the emotional conflict between lovers and then married couples, however did not go deep into it, though he had ample scope to do so for better impact. Instead of taking cinematic liberties, had he included few scenes highlighting the romance between Divyansha and Chaitu as lovers and then Samantha and Chaitu as married couple, the result would have been even powerful.

Final Talk

Majili emotional journey moves movie lovers.
