Touted as the highest budget film on the Telugu screen with a whopping Rs. 45 crore, shot in a record number of locations, the most-awaited film of Junior NTR's Shakti has hit the screens today. Unfortunately, neither the production values nor the story has done justice for the money spent on the film. Read on for Shakti review.
Story: Mahadevaraya (Prabhu) is the Union defence minister and his father (SP Balasubrahmanyam) is from Rayala’s dynasty. Their forefathers give them a miracle sword and a Jwalamukhi (a diamond), which help them open the Maha Shakti Peetham, the highest powerful place than the Ashta Dasa Shakti Peethams across the country. The road to the temple is invisible so as the temple.
It will come to light once in 27 years and the invisible temple is being safeguarded by one Rudra (NTR). Some Egyptians wanted to get the Trishulam in the temple to revive the lives of the mummies of their forefathers and become supreme. An Egyptian Pharaoh Mukhta (Sonu Sood) decides to bring the Trishulam at any cost and dies in the hands of Rudra and Rudra dies in the hands of Janakiram (Jackie Shroff), who was the minister with Mahadevaraya’s father.
He snatches the powerful sword and kills Mahadevaraya’s parents too. However, the diamond remains with Mahadevaraya. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
