MAHARATHI has released and majority of reviews have been favorable towards the film. Though the opening of the film isn't quite heartwarming with people continuing to stay at home, Paresh Rawal has won accolades all over as the man who plays the central protagonist in the film. Adapted from the namesake Gujarati play, one wonders why the makers chose to stick on to an unconventional titled like MAHARATHI?

"Yes, the title of the film may be a little unfamiliar for some but since the play had so run well with the same name, we thought why not stick to it", questions Paresh Rawal who has been seen in an uncharacteristic slim 'avtar' for the film, "See, we didn't want to loose goodwill about MAHARATHI which we had earned through the namesake play."

He admits that the team ended up saving quite some effort that would have gone into rebuilding the brand if the title would have been changed. "People have been familiar about MAHARATHI even before we began shooting for the film. Hence, we ended up asking ourselves that why to channelise our energy into thinking of something different. The film is anyways about who is the best warrior, the 'maharathi'? The deal is to find out the smartest amongst them all. Due to this, the title fitted to the T."

Talking about the prospects of the film, Paresh Rawal adds, "Though this may sound like a standard line, the fact is that reactions from people have been great. People are really liking the film and it would only see an escalation in foot falls as the weekend progresses."
