Pantham with tagline ‘For a Cause’ starring Gopichand and Mehreen Kaur Pirzada, directed by K. Chakravarthy and produced by K. K. Radhamohan is hitting the theaters today. Let’s see the storyline.
Story: Jayendra aka Nayak (Sampath Raj), who is corrupted home minister of the state. Nayak is involved in scams and suddenly he loses money. The minister Nayak hires investigators to find the culprit and was shocked after hearing the name of the person, who theft his money. Who is the culprit? What is the purpose behind it? To get these answer, one should watch Pantham on screen.
- Few outdated scenes
- Forceful comedy
Performance: Gopichand delivers as per the requirement of the script. His performance especially during the climax is noteworthy. There is not much of scope for heroines in this movie. Mehreen Kaur Pirzada does not get much screen space but she delivers her best. Sampath Raj, Vennela Kishore, Shiyaji Shinde, Pavithra Lokesh, Jaya Prakash Reddy, Srinivas Reddy, Ajay and Mukesh Sushi do justice with their roles.
Technical: The story of Pantham is very good. The screenplay is interesting. K Chakravarthy who is a strong writer has written characters with substance. Though the characterizations are well written, the robbery idea is not powerful enough to make the drama work. Such type of movie demands strong robbery ideas. The makers used outdated ideas for robberies in Pantham to impress the audiences. The songs are just ok. BGM by Gopi Sundar is good. The cinematography by Prasad Murella is alright. Editing by Praveen Pudi is good. The production values are lavish. The artwork is nice.
Analysis: Pantham is a good entertainer movie that carries social message. Prudhviraj’s comedy provides entertainment. Plus points are plot point, Gopichand and Climax. On the flip side, songs and few outdated scenes might dampen the experience. On a whole, Pantham is a suspense thriller and offers something different for regular movie goers.
