Superstar Mahesh Babu has seen Rajinikanth's Petta, Balakrishna's NTR Kathanayakudu and Venkatesh and Varun Tej's F2 – Fun and Frustration and has rave reviews for all the three movies.

It is known that Mahesh Babu is a family man, who reserves time for his family amidst his busy schedules. He often goes on foreign trips with his wife and children. He also watches good movies with them and shares his review on Twitter with his followers. He took a break from the shooting of his upcoming movie Maharshi and he was seen watching a series of new films that were released during Sankranti weekend.

NTR: Kathanayakudu hit the screens on January 9 and Mahesh Babu watched the movie on its opening day. Soon after it got over, the superstar tweeted, "Surreal & large... @DirKrish has painted the canvas with an out of the world experience Balakrishna garu has gone into the skin of #NTR garu's character and LIVED EVERY BIT OF IT All the characters penned & portrayed are 100% true to life. Brilliant."

Mahesh Babu added, "#NTRKathanayakudu is undoubtedly the best tribute one could have ever given to the LEGEND of Telugu cinema, NT Rama Rao garu If there's going to be anything better than #NTRKathanayakudu, it's going to be #NTRMahanayakudu. Looking forward already. Congratulations to the entire team."

It is not clear whether Mahesh Babu watched Vinaya Vidheya Rama, which hit the screens on January 11. However, the Ram Charan starrer had huge expectations before its release, but the movie opened to negative response from the viewers. This may be the reason Prince might have avoided watching this film.
