Movie Info

Prassthanam' means journey. This is a story about power, greed, love, human fallacies. Set in a contemporary political family, the story of Prasthaanam like the Mahabharat, deals with complex questions on morality, right and wrong. No character in the film is black or white, each of them is a human shade of grey. 'Old Sins Have Long Shadows' . Shakespearean in its treatment, Prassthanam tells the story of Baldev Saahu - a great political leader, but vulnerable to his ambition - and the story of his two sons, step-son Ayush and biological son Vivaan. One who wishes to be a candle and illuminate, while the other, like a raging wildfire, wishes to destruct. The story is an emotionally charged intense character drama in which every character is chasing their own desire, giving rise to complex and destructive situations. The lust for power leads to a complicated web of relationships, where blood, love, dharma and loyalties clash. As relationships are torn apart and blood fights blood, each one is left to figure their own path, their own journey.

  • If you're a fan of political drama and tall men in suits, this might work for you.

  • Prassthanam manages to hold your interest in parts due to its fast paced developments. But it also suffers from the usual pitfalls like unwanted songs and just too many conflicts, happening all at once.

  • Those who know these films can predict exactly what happened in the distant past that Singh doesn't talk about, but the film has enough meat on its bones to keep us chewing.

    September 20, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Structured like a Shakespearean tragedy, Prassthanam is built on countless conflicts, awash with textbook characters and dated in its story-telling.

  • All-in-all, better attention to details and towards editing would have added to the film's dramatic impact. In its current form, it feels like an unfinished product at best...

    September 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's equally frustrating to watch a film, knowing the potential it holds, but bad execution and a regressive storyline lead the train to derail even before it leaves the station.
