Amazing movie to sit-back and watch (suspense entertainer)
6 March 2016 | by gchchakravarthiSee all my reviews

"Kshanam" is one of a kind and top notch movies in the recent past from telugu (Indian) cinema industry. Backing up with an amazing story, screenplay, background and editing altogether merge flawlessly. Leading roles and supporting crew did an astonishing work to fit in to the characters which made "KSHANAM" a top of the list movies in 2016. Although few obvious situations and few flaws towards the end of the movie can be found, as an whole a decent credit should be given to the story. "KSHANAM" has the potential to attract all the ages to the cinemas and might give a lot of support and hope for the low budget and non commercial movies in the telugu industry to gain.
