The historical past is..

Because of this, Menaka provides delivery to a woman. Menaka leaves the kid on the earth because the baby born of a person can not enter the world of God. A flock of birds takes the boy to the ashram of Kanva Maharshi (Sachin Khadekar) on the banks of the Malini river.
Kanva Maharshi named her Shakuntala (Samantha) and raised her as a woman. In the future Dushyanta Maharaja (Dev Mohan) goes to Kanvasrama. He sees Shakuntha there and falls in love at first sight. Shakuntala additionally loves Dushyanta Maharaja. Each of them turn out to be one with the Gandharva marriage. After that, surprising occasions occur within the lives of each. What are they? What was the humiliation of the pregnant Shakunta within the kingdom of Dusyanta? Why did Dusyanta say that he’s not the daddy of the kid rising in Shakuntala’s womb? How did Durvasa Mahamuni (Mohan Babu) trigger the separation of Shakuntala and Dusyanta? What are the pains skilled throughout being pregnant? The place did his son develop up? How did these two get again collectively? That is the remainder of the story.
Gunasekhar directed this movie based mostly on Kalidasa’s play Abhignana Sakunthalam. Everybody is aware of that it is a stunning love poem. A narrative recognized to many. Bringing such tales to the display screen is sort of a sword. There have to be visible results and graphics to mesmerize the viewers. However on this matter, Gunasekhar’s group failed miserably. The Sakunthalam film was made as if it was extra of a serial than a film with inferior 3D components.
However even when you have not learn the Mahabharata but… even when you do not know who Shakuntala is… this film will likely be comprehensible. He defined all the things very clearly and in a manner that everybody may perceive. However much less inform the story as a narrative.
Lately if the story would not have pace, sturdy conflicts and twists… the viewers shouldn’t be supporting it. There have to be a powerful story to entertain them for 2 and a half hours. In any other case, the know-how needs to be fascinating. However each of them bought misplaced at Sakunthalam. The story goes with out bothering wherever. However the public is bored. Aha..Whoa..It appears that there’s just one scene..
As for all the first half… Child Shakunta is picked up by birds and left in Kanvasram… Kanva Maharshi is raised and grows… Shakunta’s relationship with the birds and animals there… Premayanam with Dusyanthu… it’s like that. Take an interval card with just a little twist.
The entire story takes place within the second half. Shakuntala goes to the dominion of the evil one…she is humiliated…the individuals of her kingdom stone her…she runs away from there…lots of these incidents occur within the second half. The second half was a bit higher in comparison with the primary half.
The love story of Shakuntala and Dushyanthu shouldn’t be very spectacular. Additionally, there aren’t any sturdy scenes to develop chemistry between them. The battle scenes are additionally very poor. In lots of locations it’s simply recognized that it’s about graphics. And within the climax, Allu Arha’s entrance as Bharatha is thrilling. Her arguments with Dushyanthu amuse the viewers.
Who did it?
Samantha tried to do Shakuntala’s character justice. She acted nicely in numerous variations of the position of lover and spouse that she is way from her husband. However the dubbing of her is an enormous disadvantage. And Dev Mohan as Dushyanta Maharaja was nicely forged however not very spectacular when it comes to performing. It might be higher to interchange him with an actor who’s accustomed to Tollywood. A star hero would have been higher. As a result of that character has the identical display screen area as Samantha. Guna Shekhar forged Dev Mohan who shouldn’t be recognized to the Telugu viewers for such a job.
And Mohan Babu is nicely set as Durvasa Maharishi. The looks of him on the display screen was spectacular. It feels uncomfortable to see Madhubala as a dream. And Allu Arjun, who ushered within the climax, deserves a hug. She did justice to Bharat’s character with the hugs and hugs from her. Properly mentioned Telugu dialogues. Gauthami, Ananya Nagalla, Jishshusen Gupta, Shiva Balaji, Kabir Singh, Sachin Khadekar and the remainder of the forged did their roles justice. As for technical facets, Mani Sharma’s music is nice. Good background music was supplied together with the songs. The graphics division is totally impressed. 3D mentioned however… that feeling shouldn’t be a lot. The modifying is ok. The manufacturing values are beneath common for the movie.
