Movie Review

Shaakuntalam opens to a bird carrying a baby across half the planet only to land it in a forest where a safe finds it and explains her arrival and how she was born. The girl, in no time, grows up into Samantha and begins the story that the makers interested in telling. It is about a time that did reflect on our screens for years but definitely not a story that did. If a film opens up so vaguely that it believes the audience with suspend their disbelief on the basis of an animation about an ‘Apsara’ and her short-lived relationship, you are expecting a lot.

With no intent to belittle the mythology or the Indian Folklore, there is a lot that cannot be believed considering the human capacity. So technically, it is all magic, and magic cannot fast-paced that it forgets that it has an entire hall that it has make believe in itself. Shaakuntalam least bothered about its audience because it just chooses to run with all the convenient plot vehicles available.

The cameo by Allu Arha is undoubtedly one of the biggest assets of this flick. One gets wondered by the amazing screen presence of Arha. The little girl, though seen for a very short time, makes her presence felt. She mouthed tough dialogues brilliantly, and Allu Arjun fans will have a feast watching Arha on the big screen. Her presence makes a difference to this otherwise dull film.

Director Gunasekhar, who has a bunch of respectable hits to his name, from Ookadu to Rudhramadevi, keeps his powder dry in the only department that eventually matters. The video game-like visual effects by Alagarsamy Mayan and production design by Ashok Kumar convincingly conjure up the wonderment that is sorely missing in the screenplay.
