Lakshya is a sports drama scripted and directed by Santhossh Jagarlapudi. Narayan Das Narang, Puskur Ram Mohan Rao, and Sharrath Marar produced the film. Kaala Bhairava composed the music. Ram is the cinematographer, and Junaid Siddiqui is the editor of Lakshya. Naga Shaurya, Ketika Sharma, Sachin Khedekar and Jagapati Babu are cast in the main roles.


Pardhu has been interested in archery right from his childhood. His talent impressed his grandpa, Raghu Ramaiah, who spent all his earnings training Pardhu. He joins him in the best academy for archery and makes Pardhu a state champion. When Pardhu’s life has been going on well, unexpectedly, his grandpa leaves him in tears. As he couldn’t bear the sudden demise of his grandfather, Pardhu becomes a drug addict. Will he overcome this and become a champion? The rest of the story deals with it.

Star Performance

Naga Shourya did a good job as Pardhu. His physical transformation is unbelievable. Sachin Khedekar is so natural in his performances and impresses the audience. Ketika gets a meaty role, and she has done her part well. Jagapati Babu seems to have expressed a bit more than usual.


The first half of the story moves well yet is predictable. The screenplay moves at the right pace. The director didn’t give much importance to the romance portions, yet there are some pleasant moments. Instead of giving intense training, the coach preaches more. If it was avoided, those coaching scenes would have brought some Goosebumps. The second half is good, yet the world championship series was not designed well. Certain emotions seem to be forcedly inserted, and the bonding between Pardhu and grandpa needed some better scenes.

What’s There?

  • The story is okayish
  • Naga Shourya and Sachin are impressive with their performances
  • The production values are good

What’s Not There?

  • The climax should have been shot better


Although the film has some flaws, Naga Shourya’s performance and transformation impressed the audience. Lakshya - a decent watch!
