Shankara Movie Review
Shankara Movie Story
Nara Rohit as college student dependably thinks that it’s hard to alter with the general public that he lives. Therefore, he can’t control his outrage and frequently winds up with problems. His erratic conduct turns into a steady stress for his mom and sibling. A series of episodes drives him to leave Madurai and wind up in Chennai. In spite of scoring high marks in school, he joins a local arts college in the city and stays in a hostel where the trouble begins.
Meanwhile, while traveling from Bangalore to Hyderabad, Assistant Commissioner (John Vijay), Inspector, Sub-Inspector and Sgt/Head Constable witness a car accident. When they are about to take the victim (son of a Bangalore-based business tycoon) to a nearby hospital, they come across a huge stash of cash. The policemen kill the (half dead) victim and flee to Chennai with the money.
Pragathi plays a role of an sincere cop takes up this case. A cluster of lies, ego clash at the hostel and family’s ignorance brings innocent Nara Rohit into this crime plot. The rest is a racy roller-coaster ride that forms the climax.
Shankara is being well received by audience because of the grasping screenplay and performance by actors. Nara Rohit has stunned everyone with his performance which is the highlight of the movie. As the movie is a dark thriller, showing the cruelty of some cops, Sai Karthik has scored great bgm to fit the film.
Regina Cassandra as love interest of Nara Rohit helps him to get out of the crime scene and had done her part exceptionally well. Pragathi as the earnest cop has edified with her exhibitions.
Overall, Shankara is a thrilling adventurous ride that will take you to the seat edges once you engage with the movie.
