Adah Sharma bags a meaty role and performs well in the full-length emotional role. It is one of the best roles unlike her regular glamorous roles. She shares good chemistry with Adivi Sesh.

Anasuya is confident and convincing in the role of a cop.

Satyam Rajesh as a frustrated cop is another major asset for the movie. His acting capabilities make you surprised in this movie.

Satya Dev is justifying. Others including Vennela Kishore, Satya, Ravi Varma were adequate.

Technicians Role

Cinematography is brilliant and keeps you glued, while Sricharan Pakala’s background score elevates the proceedings. The songs are shot well and gel with the film’s theme.

Ravikanth Perepu’s direction is gripping and impressive. He has done a fabulous job for this thriller, despite being a debutant.

Screenplay however has some hiccups, while editing is slick and crisp.

Production values of PVP house are rich.


Kshanam as promoted is a thriller with a unique plot and gripping execution. The racy narration with hard hitting twists and thrills deserves applause to the team of Kshanam. The cast are perfect and delivered some terrific performances, while the technicians did a brilliant job.

Director Ravikanth Perepu made the film racy maintaining the suspense factor throughout. The interval bang is brilliant and the second half is engaging.
However, on the flip side some of the twists were not convincingly cleared and the climax could have been dealt well with an emotional touch.

The film is certainly not for commercial routine movie lovers who are looking for entertainment, but it’s an intense and engaging thriller, which is definitely worth a watch.

RATING 3.25/5
