Uma Maheshwara Ugra Roopasya: Film Review – Technically Brilliant
Love & A Little Revenge
80%Overall Score

Streaming on Netflix

After a couple of postponements, Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya finally hit the OTT platform and is now streaming on Netflix. This is probably the biggest Telugu movie to date to have skipped the theatrical release and released directly on OTT. Featuring Satyadev, Roopa, Hari Chandana, Suhas, Naresh, Mithila and Raghavan in prominent roles, the movie is a remake of super hit Malayalam movie titled Mahesinthe Prathikaaram. Bankrolled by Arka Media Works and Mahayana Motion Pictures, let us delve into the merits and demerits of Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya.

Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasaya has all the emotions

While trying to defuse a conflict among his fellow villagers, Mahesh gets badly beaten and humiliated in front of everyone. He vows revenge on his attacker and how he achieves it forms the core theme of Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya. Apart from this little revenge that begins in the middle of the movie, there are also two love stories intertwined around Mahesh. While one leaves him with bitter memories, the other gives him life. The movie is a culmination of varied emotions bringing the best among the cast and crew.

Splendid Performances from the cast

Actor Satyadev was amazing in the lead role as Mahesh and absolutely crushed it. He is only getting better after every movie and this is easily one among the best works, he has done till date. Roopa Koduvayur nailed it with her performance and was a treat to watch, especially in the flash mob episode. Suhas, Naresh, and Raghavan are the pick among the rest of the cast who have delivered memorable performances. Hari Chandana as Mahesh’s original love interest was apt in her role.

Aesthetic Taking and Technically Brilliant

Venkatesh Maha, who won accolades with his debut directorial, C/O Kancharapalem, chose to opt for a remake as his second movie. After watching both these movies, one can easily say that the core strength of Venkatesh Maha lies in his realistic approach of film making. While his first movie takes everyone to the streets of Kancharapalem, watching this movie gives you a feel that you are at Araku valley. Appu Prabhakar’s visuals are exemplary to the core and Bijbal Manivil’s music is a treat to ears. Raviteja Girijala’s editing is pitch-perfect in this movie that has a run-time of 2 hour 15 mins. Artwork and production values are appreciable and it would have been a better viewing experience had it waited for some more time and released in theatres. Nevertheless, enjoy this movie at your home theatre.


In the midst of lockdown, Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya comes as a breath of fresh air to entertain you. Though the plot is wafer-thin, it keeps you engaging throughout. Memorable performances and brilliant execution make UmaMaheswara Ugra Roopasya an easy one-time watch.
