Sahasam Movie Review Highlights:
- Gopichand who essays the role of Goutham, has done an excellent job. The lanky actor has delivered a good performance, particularly in the action episodes.
- Although, there’s no great variation in Gopichand’s dialogue modulation, but the actor seems to carry his character with an ease.
- A few scenes in the film are quite brilliant and Chandrasekhar Yeleti excels in showing technical finesse in shot making. He once again proved himself as the director with great-technical-shot-making ability.
- The film initially establishes the characters, then slowly unveils the mystery and the nexus among the lead characters in a logical way.
- Unlike her glam roles, Taapsee will be seen playing a devotional young woman.
- Bollywood’s ‘bad man’ Shakti Kapoor is the show stealer. He looks superb in the role of terrorist Sultan and comes with a commanding performance.
- The interval sequence and climax episodes have been shot well.
- Cameraman Shyamdat was able to capture the picturesque locales of Ladakh, where the set was erected to get the required Pakistani ambiance.
- For an adventurous script, the tempo and emotions should run high but the film lacks the required trigger. As a result, it fails to draw the audience attention.
- The director could not engage the audience as the screenplay wasn’t gripping but the narration style could save the film
- Chandrasekhar Yeleti needs to be applauded for his tryst of an adventurous film — something that’s unique in Telugu films.
