iSmart Shankar Review Live Updates

Thursday, July 18, 2019 • Telugu Comments
8:52 am : iSmart Shankar movie just started. Run time is 140 minutes. Watch this space for LIVE updates.
8:59 am : The film starts out talking about brain function, throwing around terms like neurons and RNA. Ram Pothineni enters the screen as a criminal daring the cops.
9:08 am : The title song takes off after Ram reels off a few wacky lines. Nabha Natesh is seen as a rowdy civil engineer.
9:22 am : Get-up Srinu is seen as an auto driver and the hero's friend. Asish Vidhyarthi and Tulasi seen. The Old City backdrop is colourful. The love track is typically Puri Jagannadh-esque.
9:38 am : Action scenes are expected to go up in number. Satyadev and Nidhhi Agerwal set to be important in the story from now.
9:45 am : Shayaji Shinde seen in an important role. Gun battles are seen here and there. Sci-fi element introduced.
10:04 am : Shankar is in for trouble. He needs to discover a secret.
10:05 am : Interval
10:25 am : One feels the film is sliding too often into forced songs. The second half may well present a crazy rom-com track. The sound design is of excellent quality.
10:42 am : The second half infuses some situational humour. The proceedings are farcical, given that the story is about investigating the murder of a former chief minister.
10:56 am : The second half blends action and elements like romance. 'Undipo' song comes with a picturization that is discordant with the lyrics.
11:20 am : The climax is conveniently written. Predictable to the core. Ram shines through the script.
11:25 am : The End
