Rediff Review: Shakti is a wasted effort

Shakti is touted to be one of the most expensive films in Telugu. The lavishness is visible in the special effects, sets, locations and action sequences.

However, all this seems unimpressive in the face of the storyline where mythology comes together with reality to produce a tale that is rather long and outdated in today's times and tedious to watch.

Director Meher Ramesh may well have thought of projecting NTR in a 'period-cum-present' film but unfortunately he ends up doing a mishmash of things.

The film draws its inspiration from the concept of the 18 shakti pithas (or places of Shakti worship) in the country and suggests that there might be another unknown Shakti pitha.

Sadly Shakti does not seem to have much 'shakti' to sustain. Even NTR tries to save the film but cannot do a lot.
