Movie : Pantham (2018)
Star Cast : Gopichand, Sampath Raj, Mehreen Pirzada
Director : K. Chakravarthy Reddy
Producer : Sri Sathya Sai Arts
Releasing on : 5 July 2018

 

Macho star Gopichand’s ‘Pantham’ with tagline ‘For a Cause’ is billed as a strong social drama laced with commercial elements. Mehreen Pirzada is the leading lady and K. Chakravarthy has directed this landmark of Gopichand. Let us see how this film has been shaped up:

Story:

Gopichand is a guy who smartly executes black money robbery from politicians, ministers. The main target of his robberies is Nayak Bhai alias Jayendra who is a home minister. Nayak Bhai hires investigators to find the culprit, surprise fact about Gopichand’s background reveals.

Rest of the story is revealing the cause Gopichad turned thief and his showdown with the powerful men in politics

Performances:

Gopichand in his 25h film has been peformed okay. In fight sequences he worked hard. Mehreen has limited screentime as Gopichand’s girl friend. Srinivas Reddy, JayaPrakash, Prudhvi Raj ‘s comedy performance evokes some laughter. Sampath Raj villainy is not so great.

Analysis:

‘Pantham ‘film takes off as gopichand showcasing innovative robbery ideas. Here the word ‘innovative’ is the director’s perspective but audience won’t feel any creative stuff out there. Backdrop of this story demands some cool robbery ideas. Instead, the team filled up with all outdated ideas for robberies. Prudhviraj as house owner delivers some comedy. With no highlights, first half ends on rather dull note. Post-interval, the film is speed in screenpla wise. As flashback opens, some twists in the plot appeal to the audience. But, soon director jumps into forced sentiment scenes until the climax. Climax has been shot in a courtroom with prolonged conversations. Some of the dialogues from climax are reall

Music director Gopi Sundar songs did not suit masses. Especially for the ‘Desam antE matti kodoy ‘song, audience were heard laughing at it. Mr. Prasad Murella cinematography is nice. Producer KK Radha mohas has Production values are lavish.

Positives:

  • Racy Screenplay
  • Some social message
  • Decent comedy at parts
  • Dialogues , Especially Climax Court Scene

Negatives:

  • Cliched plot
  • Weak songs
  • Outdated scenes

Verdict:

‘Pantham’ movie is a routine mass flick with infused social message. This robinhood template story has racy screenplay, some comedy as it’s strengths. However, many scenes are cliched and songs are another weak point. Being a 25th film for hero Gopichand, it could have been better. Overall, it may work as an average in B, C centers and won’t get any brownie points with others

Action hero Gopichand’s upcoming film Pantham has been progressing at quite a speed over the past months and after several days of hard work, the team has finally finished shooting for the film and post-production is on in full swing. Directed by K. Chakravarthy and produced by KK Radhamohan under Sri Satya Sai Arts banner, the film is a landmark film for the actor marking his 25th venture. The team had last gone to UK to shoot some key sequences and songs and have now returned to Hyderabad after calling it a wrap on the film there.

While the film is a commercial entertainer, it also has a message which the filmmakers are quite happy with since it has shaped up well. Already the teaser of the film generated an interest. The dialogue that the hero says in a court – ‘Otuni aidu velaku ammukoni… avineeti leni samajam kavali… Corruption leni country kavalante ekkada nundi vastayi’ – has left people in a bout of thoughts.

And the team is quite excited to bring forth the film to the audience on July 5 when a grand release is being planned worldwide.
