No other Telugu picture have I watched as many times as "Kshana Kshanam." A thoroughly enjoyable film, "Kshana Kshanam" was now veteran director Ramgopal Varma's second feature after his path-breaking "Shiva."

A character driven movie with an interesting plot, this movie has a lot going for it. Brilliant, close-to-life performances by the lead actors lent the film's rather fictional storyline a sense of authenticity and believability.

Venkatesh and Sridevi share a fine on-screen chemistry and both do a commendable job. I consider Sridevi's performance in this film to be one of her career best after "Sadma". Then, of course, there was Paresh Rawal's impeccable portrayal of the neurotic bad-guy which just blew my mind away. His 'Nair' role is arguably one of the best villain parts in any Indian film since 'Gabbar Singh' in "Sholay". A treat watching Rawal here in all his acting glory.

Ramgopal Varma's screenplay is precise leaving no room for unnecessary fillers. Every scene is an integral part of the story, including the songs which are melodious, witty & nicely choreographed and definitely one of the film's highlights. Varma's direction is special as always in the sense that he lets his actors take the story forward for us spectators. Varma the actor's director sticks to his forte and delivers a smasher!

Indian or not, Varma fan or not, watch this film now. I say this is a great film and in two hours and thirty minutes you'll be nodding your head in agreement with me.
