Anupama Chopra, Rajeev Masand and Taran Adarsh didn’t review this movie

Ratings:. Review By: Komal Nahta  Site: Zee ETC Bollywood Business

The film is a remake of the Telugu film of the same name. Deva Katta’s story is predictable and treads the beaten path. There are a number of twists and turns, some contrived or convoluted, some others very predictable. His screenplay, adapted in Hindi by Farhad Samji, is also very routine. There is not even an attempt to offer the audience something new or fresh. On the whole, Prassthanam is a flop show with some chances in a couple of small circuits only.

Ratings:.2/5 Review By: Saibal  Site: NDTV

At no point in the 140 minutes that it expends in beating around the bush does Prassthanam, directed by Deva Katta, provide any inkling why his critically lauded Telugu drama of the same title from nearly a decade ago needed a Hindi remake, barring the fact that the film has been produced by Sanjay Dutt for Sanjay Dutt. If the intention is to give the actor’s brand value a fillip, this screechy, bloated film about a blood-soaked fratricidal tussle in an Uttar Pradesh political clan does not serve the avowed purpose. All that overlong Prassthanam manages to do is give the impression that the lead actor is desperately clinging on to what is no longer of much worth either in creative or professional terms.

Despite it all, the film feels somewhat dated. Here a rape-and-murder, there a club dancer shimmying; here a Haji Ali song sequence, there a funeral-dressed-in-white-kurta-pajamas. Of the ensemble, in which Panday gets to wear a bad wig and vamp it up most enjoyably, Ali Fazal is the most impressive: as the young ‘waaris’ of his father’s legacy, and someone who has a head on his shoulders, Fazal holds this thing together.

The style of the film veers from domestic soap opera to dramatic crime and action stitched together by political drama. Structured like a Shakespearean tragedy, Prassthanam is built on countless conflicts, awash with textbook characters and dated in its story-telling.

Ratings:.3/5 Review By: Sreeparna  Site: Times Of India

The dialogues by Farhad Samji are often too filmy and funny and they don’t always fit into the moment. Prassthanam manages to hold your interest in parts due to its fast paced developments. But it also suffers from the usual pitfalls like unwanted songs and just too many conflicts, happening all at once. In conclusion, Prassthanam is a tried and tested political potboiler with power, greed and emotions at its core.

‘Prassthanam’ (reign) should serve as a lesson to all those who believe a star, albeit a rusty one, is enough to earn top dollar at the box office.It’s equally frustrating to watch a film, knowing the potential it holds, but bad execution and a regressive storyline lead the train to derail even before it leaves the station.

All in all, it is sad to see a movie that had so much potential, just letting go. The movie had too many subplots, only half of which were needed. It can be said that the first half of the film has direction and drive after which everyone seemed to give up and just wanted to kill or die. As did we as the credits finally rolled out.

At one point in this film, a character says, ‘Don’t judge a movie by its poster’. This is true of Prassthanam too – a film whose trailer or poster, frankly, does little justice to its content. The fact that it is a remake of a 2010 Telugu film of the same name that was by no means a blockbuster or genre defining cinema, despite being fairly well-acclaimed and successful, was another downer. But leave those notions behind as Prassthanam, the 2019 version, surprises you with its intriguing plot, interesting characters and well-researched take on the murky world of Indian politics.
