A well made thriller
2 September 2016 | by prafulbSee all my reviews

Kshanam is a thriller based on the kidnapping of a child. Who kidnapped the child? Is the child even real? These are some of the questions that Kshanam tries to resolve. With a crisp editing and a just-sufficient run-time Kshanam makes this search an edge of the seat thriller ride. The pre-interval scene is a shocker and takes you completely by surprise. There are a couple of minor loopholes in the story, but despite that the overall gripping narrative will make you ignore them. Kshanam is extremely well-made and am sure we will see remakes in other languages soon. An extremely positive start of the year to Telugu film industry that is stuck in the larger than life hero worship and slowly evolving and accepting new and non-routine stories. Kshanam breaks stereotypes and gives us a world-class movie. If you liked Kahaani then you will surely enjoy Kshanam. Films like this is the reason why I love movies. Kudos to the entire team of Kshanam, a truly fantastic job.
