Movie Verdict

The first five episodes of Vyas’ (Brahmanandam) description are shown in the film’s opening, which offers an intriguing array of human emotions. As the stories progress, viewers can see the wonderful interactions between Lekha (Shivani Rajasekar) and Subhash (Rahul Vijay), and they can also learn more about the characters.

The movie’s worst flaw is its incredibly slow plot, which manages to hold our attention despite captivating us with its intriguing characters and superb narration. However, the second half of the movie emotionally engages and keeps the audience’s attention until the very end as the struggles, triumphs, and mental states of the five characters are revealed. You’ll have a positive viewing experience all around if you can endure the movie’s plodding pace until the very end.

Although the movie has a diverse cast of actors, Brahmanandam should be the main draw. His portrayal of Vyas was hilarious, and it was entertaining to watch on film. Swathi has given a strong performance despite having a small amount of screen time. Samuthirakani once again astounded viewers with his outstanding performance. His sense of smell is especially keen in those scenes.

The movie’s director, Harsha Pulipaka, deserves praise for bringing this amazing story to our attention. The narration could have used a little more racy language, and many of the characters don’t have happy endings, but overall he did a good job telling each of the five stories. By appealing to all five of the senses, he was also able to keep the audience interested throughout the entire movie.

Raj K has created some visually arresting episodes. Shravan Bharadwaj and Prashanth R Vihari, along with the rest of the crew, did excellent work, and Nalli’s cinematography is passable.

In general, Panchathantram is a wonderful synthesis of common human emotions that will appeal to a wide readership.
