An underrated gem!
14 September 2019 | by Prashast_SinghSee all my reviews

I think this film deserved and still deserves a lot more praise. Shakti is an entertaining mix of outstanding action sequences, epic scale production values, gorgeous visuals and an intriguing plot. Both halves were well-balanced. There's something unusually attractive about this film that makes me want to watch this film again and again!

Jr NTR is impressive, especially in the action sequences and songs. His dance is an absolute treat! Ileana has a balanced character and she does a good job. Others such as Nassar, Prabhu and Sayaji Shinde are also very impressive. The production values really need to be praised as this film has been told as an epic and it succeeds in being what it wants to be: a fun action entertainer. All action sequences are simply breathtaking. Music is also good.

The film might not have received a great response back in 2011, but it still deserves to be seen, loved and remembered. Shakti is a highly entertaining action fantasy film that offers ample entertainment and is totally worth your time.
