Bollywood and Tollywood are going hand in hand. Hit movies on either side of the Vindhyas are being remade and the audience enjoys this trend. Prasthanam the 2010 hit movie in Telugu has been remade by Sanjay Dutt with his production house. It is a political drama and revolves around MLA Baldev Pratap Singh played by Sanjay Dutt and the political infighting within the family as the father backs his step son [Ali Fazal] as his political heir. This causes animosity in the mind of his son [Satyajit Dubey]. Manisha Koirala as Saroj plays an important role as Baldev Singh’s wife. However, one wishes her role had been longer.
Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey and Amyra are also part of the cast. The movie is directed by Deva Katta. Though there is nothing new in the movie, the many twists and turns it takes keeps the audience engaged. It is an out and out political movie which will appeal to the politically minded audience. It is a potboiler with power, greed and emotions at its core.
