Krishna's (Sudheer Babu) costly car is stolen at a party that he organizes for the love of his father. How Inspector Ranjith finds out the culprit and actual truth about the robbery? Where do Shiva (Sundeep Kishan), Karthik (Aadi), and Mahesh Babu (Rajendra Prasad) fit into this scheme of things?
Sudheer Babu is superb in a role that requires him to portray emotions in an understated manner. The second half mother sentiment scene showcases his brilliant range as an actor.
Nara Rohit is amazing in all the scenes that happen in the second half. He must be appreciated for the ending that he gets in the second half.
Sundeep Kishan and Aadi come up with fantastic performances in roles that have a story if their own. They do justice to their characters by staying in the characters and not acting heroically.
And last but not the least, Rajendra Prasad is scene stealing once again in a role that is walk in the park for him. Indraja compliments him well as a pair in the film's small moments.
Drags in first half
Directing a film that has multiple heroes is a big taste. Sriram Adithya manages that with great ease in Shamantakamani. He goes a step ahead and gives everyone a role that equal in importance and length.
The first half of the movie is slow to begin with. The director takes time in establishing each and every character and their back story, it could have been done in simple manner but that's alright as the required suspense is created. The second half then delivers exactly as promised at the intermission point. The scenes are are well knitted together and it all leads to a climax that is amazing put together. It takes the movie to a different level. Overall, thanks to a stunning climax we have a big winner in Shamantakamani.
The background music by Mani Sharma is totally in sync with the tempo of the film. The cinematography by Sameer Reddy is brilliant. Editing is razor sharp. The dialogues are a major highlight. Production values are rich.
Bottom-line: Thrillingly Funny Ride
