For the past few years, Mahesh Babu has carefully picked roles that are heroic and centered around the greater good of the common people. His 2017 crime thriller Spyder is the same. The Telugu film is the story of a techie who develops software that helps people in need. With an added element of humour, drama and romance, Spyder, also starring Rakul Preet Singh, remains a movie that we cherish.
The opening scene of the Telugu movie shows three youngsters. The girl has been fooled by one boy and is all set to elope for love. The boy brings his friend along to help him ditch the girl and run away with the money. But they’re all caught, not by police in uniform but still by officials. In this indirect and simple scene, we know that we’re rooting for righteousness all throughout the film.
