Ram had played his part well. Both the heroines are used for duet purposes. However, Nidhi gets a better role than Nabha. Ashish Vidyarthi has done his part well, as usual. Satyadev utilized his minimum screen time and brought out his best.
This is a different attempt in Tollywood and Puri has done his part okayish. The characters are neatly portrayed. However, Ram’s character should have been better. Ram is a good selection and his body language suits the role well. The comedy scenes are not made as a separate track and as they gel with the script, they seem to be okayish. The first half is interesting than the second half, as the latter part is easily predictable. There are a lot of logical loopholes and the screenplay in the second half is unimpressive. The politics scenes don’t create any impact, as we have seen a lot of scenes similar to this.
What’s Not There?
Ismart Shankar is neither a super-duper movie nor the worst one. It could be watched once for its different treatment in the first half.
