Pantham Movie Review

Release date : July 05, 2018
Starring : Gopichand, Mehreen Kaur Pirzada
Director : K Chakravarthy
Producer : K. K. Radhamohan
Music Director : Gopi Sundar
Rating : 2.75/5

Hero Gopichand is going through a series of flops and has pinned a lot of hopes on his new film Pantham which has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.

Story :

Vikranth(Gopichand)plans a series of robberies on noted politicians. After a major robbery at his house, home minister, Nayak(Sampath) orders for an inquiry. To his shock, he comes to know that the man behind these robberies is Vikranth and why he has done all this. Who is this Vikranth? What is his backstory? Why did he target the politicians? To know all this, you have to watch the film on the silver screen.

Performances:


Gopi Chand has presented himself in a wholly new and different manner. He has played his part well and delivered a decent performance in the movie. His on-screen chemistry with Mehren is too good, and the actress also impressed with the looks as well as performance. Hamsa Nandini shined for a brief run-time on the screen. The other actors like Sampath Raj, Vennela Kishore, Jaya Prakash Reddy, Shiyaji Shinde, Pavithra Lokesh, Ajay, Srinivas Reddy and Mukesh Sushi have done their best and did justice for the roles they are chosen for. The rest of the cast has made their presence felt.

Plus Points:


Gopichand

Climax episode

Minus Points:

Routine plot

Uninteresting screenplay

Bad music

Technical Aspects :


Production values by K Radha Mohan are very good as a lot of money has been spent on the film. The camera work is also decent and showcases the film in a good light. Dialogues written about the social issues are very good and hard hitting. Editing is decent and so was the production design.

Coming to the director Chakri, he has done just an okay job with the film. He has chosen a relatively outdated subject and added a contemporary social issue to it. But the way he has showcased the film in the second half leaves a lot to be desired. But he manages things well during the climax and ends things on a passable note.

Verdict :

On the whole, Pantham is a passable social drama with showcases a decent message. Even though the story is outdated, director Chakri has made sure that there is decent fun in the first half and climax is satisfactory. The film has a chance to do well in the B and C centers but the multiplex audience will find things quite routine, hence making this film just an average watch this weekend.
