Director K Chakravarthi Reddy's Telugu movie Pantham starring Gopichand and Mehreen Pirzada has received mixed reviews and ratings by the audience around the world.
Pantham is an action drama with a good dose of romance and other masala elements. K Chakravarthi Reddy, who is known for his screenplay for Balupu, Power and Jai Lava Kusa, has turned director for the movie produced by KK Radhamohan under the banner Sri Sathya Sai Arts. The film has got a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.25 hours.
Pantham movie story: The movie is about a brave young man who always wants to see others happy. He is never scared of anything and never steps back in fighting for a cause. The twist in the tale is that he gets involved in a case, which lands him in jail. How he solves things in his own way forms the crux of the story.
Analysis: Pantham deals with a routine story, but what makes it interesting is that the director has blended a relevant social issue. The first half lacks a good story, but some masala elements engage you. The story gains a momentum before the interval and the second half is very good, say the audience.
Performance: Gopichand has delivered a brilliant performance, which is the highlight of Pantham. Mehreen Pirzada's glamour and chemistry with hero are assets of the film. Sampath, Srinivasa Reddy, JP, Tanikella Bharani, Prudhvi, Asish Vidhyardhi, Sayaji Shinde, Prabhas Sreenu, Hamsa Nandini, Kaumudhi, Jhansi and Prabhakar have done justice to their roles.
Technical: Pantham has decent production values and Gopi Sundar's songs and background score, Prasad Murella's cinematography, action choreography, AS Prakash's art direction and Ramesh Reddy's dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, add the viewers.

#Pantham -- (2.25/5) A Cause for Audience Liked it in Parts. The 1st half turns to be DECENT with Comedy but Except, the Court scene everything in 2nd Half runs in a PREDICTABLE way. On a whole, it turns out to be another Regular n Outdated masala flick with only few +ve's.

#Pantham is a well intended but wrongly executed film... #Gopichand shines in his role and the production values are grandeur... The result purely depends on how the audience will receive the film...

#Pantham is a commercial entertainer with a HARD-HITTING Message. Action Hero Gopichand delivered powerful performance. Climax Episode

#Pantham cinema chudatam jarigindhi.. good political background movie with good story.. very bad music ... manisharma would have been good option .. over all movie is abv Avg.. but mana system lo follow avaru..
Though #Gopichand #Pantham has an outdated story, things are packed well in first half and climax, making this film just an okay watch..My Review

Gopichand is a superb actor. His films might have failed but he never failed as a lead actor. Sad to see him in yet another poorly written-made film #Pantham

#Pantham - Flop Routine commercial movie with no plot. Failed to impress in any aspect.
Telugu Cinema @MondayReviews
Good first half Emotional & gripping 2nd half. #Pantham
#Pantham - Except some comedy scenes, Interval scene, and climax court scene, there is nothing fresh in the film. All those who love to watch action mixed message-oriented films can easily watch this film but for others, it is just yet another regular-routine film. 2.50/5.00

#Pantham Average - Nothing new! Prudhvi comedy bagundi kani same routine! Time pass!
#Pantham much better than Gopichand's previous movies One time watch if you like routine mass masala movies with a social message
#pantham 2.75/5 lacks novelty, works for few mass centers.
