Skanda is the first film that Energetic Star Ram Pothineni and mass director Boyapati Sreenu have worked on together. Before it eventually debuted in theaters today, the film generated a lot of buzz. To find out how the movie is, read our review.

Skanda Story:

The son of Telangana CM Ranjith Reddy (Sharath Lohitashwa) marries the daughter of Andhra Pradesh CM Rayudu (Ajay Purkar). Rayudu is furious and intends to get retribution, but when Bhaskar Raju (Ram Pothineni) enters, everything changes. Bhaskar Raju, who is he? What does he live by? Why did he pick on both CMs? How is Raju linked to Rudraganti Ramakrishna Raju (Srikanth)? All the solutions are in the film.

Skanda Gaining Ground

Notable is Ram Pothineni’s remarkable makeover for this movie. His beast mode is extraordinary, especially when he defeats foes in action scenes. In addition to his prominent look, the scenes are strengthened by his superb dialogue delivery.

Sreeleela’s performance as a heroine is less outstanding, yet she still demonstrates her skills by captivating viewers with her stunning looks and dance routines.

Despite having a small amount of screen time, Srikanth receives a good role, and the entire production is focused on him. A good role is also played by Daggubati Raju.


Thaman deserves praise for his excellent score, which improves numerous sequences.

Boyapati Sreenu’s recent films, particularly the battle scenes in this one, are ideal examples of how to “forget the logic to enjoy the magic,” as the saying goes. In this regard, Skanda is not an exception. Although the audience enjoys and feels a surge of excitement from the battles, there may be times when they wonder, “How is this even possible?”

Boyapati Sreenu should focus more on this component of the story because it doesn’t really give anything fresh. The movie has an interesting beginning, but it quickly loses its energy and keeps moving slowly in the second half.

He must put more effort into the plot, which needs to be interesting, in addition to writing mass dialogues that make audiences jump and directing mass battles that excite fans.

The order of the songs and their location is off. The remaining tracks, with the exception of a few, are forgettable.

Indraja, Gautami, and other minor characters who don’t significantly advance the plot are among the several characters that the movie introduces. At the very least, the director ought to have given them greater freedom to deliver some conversation.

The second half’s emotional component is passable but not particularly strong. It might have been better. Some of the talks are directed at specific political parties, although general audiences may find these more compelling, particularly in B and C centers.

Engineering aspects:

Boyapati Sreenu makes a comeback with a crowd-pleaser that favors action above emotion. The dialogue in M. Ratnam’s films is passable and occasionally gives you shivers.

The background music by Thaman is upbeat and compliments several scenes, especially in the first half. Cinematography by Santosh Detake is excellent, particularly during the battle scenes.

Editing is good, however for better pacing, many extra sequences in the second half may have been cut. The quality of the products is excellent.


Overall, Skanda is a mass action entertainer that features a strong performance from Ram Pothineni, exciting action sequences, and dances that are entertaining to watch. Fans and the general public will like this high-voltage entertainer, while others may not be interested in it due to the film’s basic plot, illogical action sequences, and slow second half.
