Shankarabharanam Movie Review
The first half of Shankarabharanam has been decent throughout. The movie has entertainment, love and emotions in the right amounts which make the complete first half impressive. The songs have been shot well and the cinematography has been eye catch. The pre-interval episodes have been shot effective which make the movie decent.
The second half of the film makes the much difference as the main plot has been completely kept aside. The comedy takes the major role and with series of comedians taking charge, the audience will be left confused. The pre-climax and the climax episodes failed to impress the audience and the second half of Shankarabharanam ends on a below average note.
Overall we would rate the movie with stars of completing the landmark of half success 5/10 stars would be appropriate for Shankarabharanam Rating
Debut in Shankarabharanam Movie
Nikhil takes the film onto his shoulders and Shankarabharanam is his one man show. He has been perfect in comedy, emotions and love making scenes. Nanditha has been decent throughout and performed well. Sampath Raj and Anjali surprised everyone as mafia goons and they elevate the film well. Sapthagiri and Prudhvi have been hilarious throughout and the other actors have delivered out their best.Shankarabharanam Review
The story of the movie has been old fashioned and is completely predictable. The screenplay has been weird and the dialogues have been decent. The music and the background score have been good and elevated the film. The cinematography has been eye catchy and the production values have been grand enough. Uday Nandanavanam makes an impressive debut, but he fails to deliver out an impressive second half.
Final Word: Shankarabharanam is a movie that lacks strong content and proper execution. With a number of comedians lined up and comedy thrown, Shankarabharanam will not end up as a savior.
