Director Puri Jagannadh's Telugu movie iSmart Shankar starring Ram Pothineni, Nidhhi Agerwal, Nabha Natesh and Satyadev Kancharana has garnered positive review and rating from the audience.
iSmart Shankar is an action film and director Puri Jagannadh has written the script and dialogues for the movie and also co-produced it with Charmme Kaur under the banner Puri Jagannadh Touring Talkies. The movie has received an A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.21 hours.
iSmart Shankar story: Shankar (Ram) is a local rowdy, who does small settlements. He has a score to settle with the people, who wronged him. He escapes from jail and the cops are after him. But the real problem starts when a chip is inserted into his brain, affecting his memories. How he outsmarts those conspiring against him forms the crux of the story.
Analysis: iSmart Shankar deals with a routine subject and Puri Jagannadh spices it up with some commercial elements. The first half has no brain splattering concept, but the director makes mass audience go berserk over massy dialogues and songs. The second half is engaging and the climax sequence is extraordinary, say the audience.
Performances: Ram Pothineni has delivered a brilliant performance and his action, dance and dialogue diction are the hightlights of iSmart Shankar. Nabha Natesh is a phenomenal revelation and she has given her best acting. Nidhhi Agerwal, Satyadev Kancharana and others have also done justice to their roles and they are among the assets of the film, say the viewers.
Technical: iSmart Shankar has brilliant production values and Mani Sharma's background score is the biggest highlight on the technical front. Raj Thota's amazing cinematography, songs, dialogues, costume designs, action and dance choreography are the other attractions, add the audience.

First Half Report: #iSmartShankar @ramsayz , his whole transformation and the plot involving @ActorSatyaDev (with a twist in the tale) are what holds the interest. Final Report #iSmartShankar The second half takes a very routine and predictable turn as feared. #iSmartShankar could have been so much more with the fresh backdrop and core plot. It turns out to be an ordinary and formulaic commercial fare, in the end.
