Kshetram
Telugu (U/A)
Cast: Jagapathi Babu, Priyam-ani, Shaam, Kota Srinivasa Rao
Director: Venugopal T

This “Kshetram” is no pilgrim spot that you would love to visit like a true devout. Running on the proverbial reincarnation theme, “Kshetram”, however, turns into a shoddy and silly staple show.

Part religious, part romance, “Kshetram”, revolves around the idols of Lord Penchalamma Narasimha Swamy and Veera Narasimha Rayulu and Lakshmi Penchalamma’s efforts to install it back in the temple from the hillock to which it has been shifted for safety, much to the chagrin of the villagers. However, the couple are slain by the evil uncle and his son.

Moving forward, you have love birds Chakri and Sohani Aggarwal getting married and soon the possessed bride kills her father-in-law. Is it all devil’s doing or divine’s way of deliverance of a wrong done? Well, the film is a heady cocktail of feudalistic practices, supersitition, family fracases delivered in deleterious dosage.
