Love tales as a style could be extremely debatable. And the identical goes for epic love tales that now we have learn, heard, or watched numerous times already.

Shaakuntalam is an epic love story, based mostly on a play known as Abhijnanashakuntalam by Indian poet Kalidasa. It options the story of Shakuntala which has been narrated in a extra dramatized manner. Gunasekhar has tried to re-tell the epic love saga of Shakuntala and King Dushyant in Shaakuntalam. Talking concerning the movie, Shakuntala is the daughter of Apsara Menaka and Sage Vishwamitra. However, Menaka should abandon her daughter proper after giving beginning. Shakuntala is taken underneath his wings by Sage Kanva. Shakuntala grows to be a fantastic maiden on the Kanva ashram. Everyone loves her. When King Dushyant comes throughout the Aashram, he meets Shakuntala, and so they fall in love. They get married immediately as per Gandharv Vivah and consummate their marriage. However, Dushyant should depart due to battle. He guarantees to return sooner or later and take her again. The twist is available in when Shakuntala is given a curse by an indignant sage. How their love stands the take a look at of time, and the curse varieties the remainder of the story.


Samantha Ruth Prabhu appears exceptionally fairly. She will make you fall in love along with her in each body. Dev Mohan as Dushyant is nice too and appears very charming on-screen. His motion scenes are higher. Sachin Khedekar as Rishi Kanav is good. Madhoo as Apsara Menaka will blow your thoughts away. You shouldn’t miss out on Kabir Bedi, however his look is altered so be careful. Prakash Raj performs a really completely different function this time and poetically takes the story ahead. Mohan Babu as Rishi Durvasa is convincing too. The music rating is nice if not the lyrics (watching in Hindi). The spotlight, nonetheless, is Allu Arjun and Sneha Reddy’s daughter Allu Arha as Bharat. She simply steals all the pieces within the final couple of minutes. The visuals are fairly interesting and appear mystic however to a restricted extent.

The VFX is a giant let-down. Mind you as a result of the movie is 3D and so, it comes throughout as very infantile. Shaakuntalam tempo within the first half would really feel fairly rushed in the event you don’t consider in love at first sight. The chemistry falters in bits and items however there are some moments the place their chemistry is plausible. The second half is what you await essentially the most as a result of it’s the foremost crux of the story. Some of the songs might have been performed away with however they’ve woven it to take the story ahead. Yet, the movie might have been simply trimmed. The tawdry VFX and the setting in some locations are much less interesting, after having watched Brahmastra and even Baahubali 1 & 2.

BL REVIEW: Shaakuntalam would have been a fantastic watch with out the uninteresting VFX. Watch it for Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Dev Mohan and Madhoo and for the love of epic love tales in the event you’re a sucker for love tales. I’m going with 3 stars.

Rating : 3 out of 5
