    The last 30 minutes is hilarious and is the highlight of the film. The title Sankarabharanam is only to garner attention and has nothing to do with the story. Also, the Bihar backdrop is not suited and it’s a big minus point.

    Finally, Shankarabharanam brought that Flop for Nikhil who is on a high. Except for Prudhvi’s comedy and few scenes nothing works for the film. Try it only if you have nothing to do this weekend.

  • Despite the hiccups, Sankarabharanam can be a decent watch for people, who love slapstick comedies. All that that is bad about the film is only its spieled treatment.

  • To summarize, Sankarabharam includes a pinch of comedy, a splash of craziness and a big gang to promising actors. If you thing they all have made Sankarabharanam a worth watch, then you are wrong.

    The film is said to be remake of a Hindi hit, Phas Gaye Re Obama but the screenplay has been changed a lot by writer Kona Venkat and he has added his own brand of style.

    On paper the basic idea looks pretty good but the screenplay has gone completely haywire with the movie neither turning out to be a proper crime comedy or romantic movie.

  • The film has garnered mixed reviews from the audience. The film is neither bad nor good. First half of the film runs on dull note, with a promising second half. Slight comedy, pinch of craziness and a big gang of kidnappers, last but not the least Anjali’s Munni role make the film to stand on an average mode, without falling below.

  • On the whole, Shankarabharanam is good only in bits and pieces. A dragged out first half, slow narration and some below par execution of crucial scenes spoil the effect most of the time. Having said that, you can try this film only for its unique story line and Pruthvi’s comedy punches here and there.

  • Film dragged right from the start to finish with lack of chemistry between hero and heroine. First half ends with pretty ordinary interval block. Comedy though tickled people had nothing new in it.

    On the whole, Shankarabharanam is Average comedy crime thriller. Hilarious scenes, great visuals are plus points. This movie is worth a watch for this weekend…

  • Nothing worked in the first half in spite of desperate attempts to make us laugh. Second half largely runs on the scenes taken from ‘Phas Gaya Re Obama’. There are attempts to add humor to the proceedings but nothing clicked except for a few one liners mouthed by Prithvi. Climax is slightly better than the rest of the movie but on a whole Shankarabharanam will leave you disappointed.

  • The film has decent technical and production values with neat cinematography (Sai Sriram) and adequate production design. Pace of the movie is not right, editor should have chopped off many scenes to tighten the screenplay in the first half. As writer, Kona has shown his spark with some witty dialogues here and his mark is visible in later portions of the movie but on the whole it lacks zest.
