Maharaja: Vijay Sethupathi's 50th film hits theaters in Tamil and Telugu today.

Maharaja, a salon owner, reports three thieves stealing Laxmi and attacking him.

The police, confused about Laxmi’s identity, reluctantly start searching for her.

Vijay Sethupathi excels as an innocent father and a desperate man seeking Laxmi.

Anurag Kashyap's minimal screen time leaves a significant impact on the film.

Non-linear narration and emotional scenes keep viewers engaged throughout the movie.

The screenplay's twists can make the familiar story confusing for some audiences.

Other actors have minimal character development, with some unfamiliar to Telugu audiences.

Technical aspects shine, especially Ajaneesh Loknath’s background score and solid production values.

Maharaja is a slow-burn tale of emotions and vengeance with a jaw-dropping twist.
