An all-out popcorn entertainer!
27 August 2018 | by Prashast_SinghSee all my reviews

I just happened to watch SANKHAM in Hindi on Prime Video.

I think the film was entertaining with many cool action scenes, catchy songs and mass moments. Gopichand and Sathyaraj delivered great performances and Trisha too came up with a decent act. Rest of the cast also did well.

I felt the first half was kinda slow in setting up the story. There were too many songs (though quite good) and certain comedy scenes felt unimpressive. Still, the writing managed to hold me as I knew I was watching an action entertainer with loads of masala. Just before the interval bang, an action sequence brings back the film to life and from there on, it's an all-out entertainer.

While dialogues are quite simple, the film still has moments which are enough to entertain any fun-seeking viewer. Loaded with intense action, SANKHAM delivers without irritating the viewer.

On the technical front, it's a pretty good film considering the time it released around. I liked the cinematography style in many of the action scenes. The emotional scenes in the second half felt impactful to a great extent.

On the whole, SANKHAM is an all-out popcorn entertainer. If you like action movies, this is the film for you. While not the best one, it's still a highly entertaining action film which once again showcases Gopichand as an "Action Star".
