Chandrasekhar Yeleti turned around Gopichand’s fortunes showing him in different style. He succeeded in presenting superior quality film in his constraints. However he failed to have entertaniment elements.Sahasam is the desi version of Hollywood treasure hunt flicks like Indian Jones,National Treasure,Tomb Raider

‘Sahasam’ isn’t your average Telugu cinema. The plot, the setting and also the execution are terribly recent and novel. sensible cinematography, nice action sequences and a few thrilling moments square measure massive assets for the moving picture. On the flip facet, lack of ancient ‘commercial elements’ may hamper the film in B and C centers.

Director’s creativity is awesome.The treasure hunt scenes are excellently presented in the silver screen with some commercial elements in place.Audience will get tied to their seats through out this movie.People will be biting their nails expecting the next scenes. Overall a very feel good movie.A unique experiment done by the director which is very much supported by his team.

Gopichand enacted the role with élan. He was very believable in the role of a gullible and ambitious person in the beginning. Gopichand gets a breather with this film. Tapsee’s characterization is interesting and she cracks it well. Shakti Kapoor gets a role which he has good scope to display some antics, and he excels.

Yeleti has been able to get the best out of his technicians be it his writing team, cinematographer Shamdat, editor Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao, music director Sri or art director Ramakrishna. Shamdat’s camera is top-notch.He shoots the action sequences and the treasure hunt, especially towards the climax excellently.

These kinds of stories are seen in Indiana Jones series and of course we too had movies like Anji and Takkari Donga in recent times. Chandrasekhar has tried his best to bring us Hollywood style adventure. He sticks true to the script and left no stone unturned for genre of this film.Hopefully all sections of audience accept this grand adventure!

Gopichand is incredible as a security guard and it’s a tailor-made role for him, whereas Taapsee does a good job as a devout young girl. Sahasam is the kind of film which doesn’t have too many surprises, but this is precisely where Chandrasekhar Yeleti and his team mesmerises you with their craft. The film is far from perfect, but rarely does a film comes by which sticks to what it wants to say.

Brilliant cinematography, nice action sequences and some thrilling moments are big assets for the movie. On the flip side, lack of traditional ‘commercial elements’ might hamper the film in B and C centers. You can safely watch ‘Sahasam’ for some desi ‘Indiana Jones’ moments.

The story has its roots in old telugu movies based on treasure hunt and the climax treatment reminds us of Indiana Jones. Chandu should be appreciated for making this adventure flick which is a novel experience for the movie goers. A lot of research has been done and the story was narrated in an interesting manner. Barring a few glitches in the second half, the movie has a solid script and deft narration.

Except for some cinematic liberties and absence of regular commercial elements, Sahasam is a good watch for people who love movies with Treasure Hunt themes. We will have to see how it works at the box office.

I found the film is interesting till the scene of hero entering Pakistan. I also liked the climax part of it which lasts for over half an hour. The director could have done a better job in doing the episodes of Pakistan engrossing. Sahasam is not a perfect film and it has it’s share of negative points.

Gopichand looked easily fit in the film and emerged with a decent performance of course. He's particularly good for action sequences. Tapsee the very first time made an appearance inside a girl nearby character. Gopichand’s Sahasam is a beautiful movie. Everyone must watch this movie. This is definitely a worthy watch for this rainy weekend.

Technically Sahasam is excellent. Cinematography, re-recording, action, visual effects are mind blowing. Technical crew deserves praises. In spite of all these merits, we get the feeling that something is missing in movie. It takes some time for viewers to sink into the story.

Though the film does not have enough masala for the front bench whistlers, it makes a significant impression. It is not a true commercial offering, but entertaining nevertheless. Superb cinematography, special effects, plot and editing make it completely worth your time and money. It's more for the adventure lovers than the masses.

Saahasam is a well-made adventure thriller that has high technical values. Watch out for the penultimate sequences. Rich production values, technicians' superb work and the last 30 minutes what makes the movie interesting to watch.

Sahasam rests on Gopichand and he does the job well working really hard on brilliantly shot action sequences. While the filmmaker handles few portions brilliantly, the screenplay should've been exhilarating and engaging towards the climax rather than dragging and lengthy. The main treasure hunt episode scenes lacked the much needed-strong impact.

Sahasam is a good effort but it is not your usual commercial film. It falls into the ‘adventure’ genre. So, it may not appeal to all kinds of audiences. Those who like the Indiana Jones series can instantly relate to the story. But since the director remains loyal to the story and does not deviate from the main plot, he hasn’t put in too many commercial elements.

Gopichand has bounced back once again in terms of his performance especially in action - fight sequences. He carried off the entire film on his shoulders well and portrayed a settled performance. Tapsee has very less scenes but her characters played key role in the movie. She made her presence felt even with less run time.
TeluguOne
Rating: 3.0/5
Gopichand's performance is better. The fights he did were good enough. And ali's comedy was really poor. Tapsee did her part well. Even shakthi kapoor and suman were up to the mark. There are not much characters in the movie that we can really praise.

Director Chandrasekhar Yeleti once again comes up with a different genre film. This time however though he has put the logic behind and gone in for an entertainer that promises entertainment packaged differently. One has to keep in mind this lack of logic as part of the project and go with the flow.

Sahasam doesn't have the elements to please the mass audiences. It's fate will depend on A center audiences who cherish to watch adventurous flicks. Except for some thrilling moments in the climax and technical values, Sahasam fails to leave a mark. It is not a must watch film but can be watched once for its different theme and great production design.

Rating: 2.75/5
First half has few humorous portions. As there are no twists and turns to shock, interval block ends pale. Then, second half is quite serious traversing through one hour plus mechanically. For average Telugu viewers who find entertainment as the ultimate goal of movie watching, ‘Sahasam’ may not be your cup of tea.

"Sahasam" is certainly not Yeleti's best and not even his worst yet. It's a film you will enjoy if you happen to watch, but wouldn't mind even if you don't watch.
