Rating: 1.75/5.0


Home Minister Jayendra (Sampath Raj) and Health Minister (Jaya Prakash Reddy) notice that their money is siphoned by a common person. They findo ut that the commoner is behind this whole robbery. When they go deep into it, they find out shocking truths about the commoner aka Vikrant.

To find out more about it, and why Vikrant is targeting the powerful and influential politicians and how he wins the heart of beautiful Akshara (Mehreen), his connection with the world's top ten industrialist Anand Surana (Mukesh Rishi),watch Pantham on silver screen.


Gopichand worked hard for his milestone 25th film. He attracted with his handsome and macho looks. He danced and performed risky stunts quite well. He performed well within his limits coming delivering powerful dialogues in the end showing good expressions and emotions.

Mehreen attracted with her gorgeous looks. However she got limited scope to show her acting talent. Sampath Raj is OK in the routine role as a villain.

Srinivas Reddy, Prudhvi and Jayaprakash Reddy tried their best to attract with their comedy but made little impact. Tanikella Bharani, Ajay,Rallapalli,Hamsa Nandini, Mukesh Rishi and others performed according to their roles.


Gopi Sunder came with routine mass beats. None of the songs are attractive. However the songs are well shot but their placement affected the tempo of the film. Background score failed to elevate the film and instead turned out to be loud. Editing of Pravin Pudi could have done away with few scenes which dragged the film throughout its duration.

Cinematography of Prasad Murella is good and beautified the film. Director Chakravarthi could have concentrated on the story and worked on the screenplay after plugging the loopholes in the script to make a better impact. Production values are good.

Plus Points

Gopichand to some extent

Few dialogues


Minus Points

Story, Screenplay, Direction

Illogical scenes


Songs placement


Routine narration

Missing chemistry between the lead pair

Music and BGM


K.Chakravarthy on debut came with a routine story. Right from the start to finish he failed to generate interest among movie lovers with illogical scenes, listless narration. Except for few dialogues in the film and Gopichand's presence in some scenes, the film failed to generate any interest.

Everyone just passed through the motions and Chakravarthy did not strove attract viewers with his creativity and novelty. He has taken movie lovers for granted and churned out 80s based story leaving all the logics for a toss. The film tests the patience of the viewers dragging it towards the climax. Had he showed Gopichand in a different manner with a novel story,  Gopichand's milestone film could have turned into a memorable one for everyone.

Final Talk

Pantam cause fails to show its power!
