Shaakuntalam Movie (2022): Cast | Story | Release Date | Trailer | Ratings | Watch Online

Samantha was in Hari-blockbuster Harish’s movie Yashoda, which was a big hit. Samantha is the main character in the movie, which is supposed to be about mythology but is now all about Shakuntalam. It was filmed in Telugu and will also be available in Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam. Shakuntalam, on the other hand, has been delayed many times because the people who made it said it was hard to make and that seeing it in 3D would be a treat for the eyes.





The makers of Shakuntalam haven’t released an official plot summary, but sources say that this very expensive movie is based on “Abhijnana Shakuntalam,” a famous Sanskrit play by Kalidasa. Samantha and Dev Mohan play Shakuntala and King Dushyant from the Mahabharata. Their love story is one of the best-known in Indian history.


The film was directed by Gunasekhar and stars Samantha as well as Dev Mohan, Allu Arha, Sachin Khedekar, Kabir Bedi, Dr.M. Mohan Babu, Prakash Raj, Madhubala, Gautami, Aditi Balan, Ananya Nagalla, and Jisshu Sengupta. Shekar V. Joseph is the director of photography for Guna Teamworks, while ManiSharma is the music composer and Neelima Guna is the producer. The movie is being put on by Dil Raju.

Let’s talk about the technical team for the movie. Prawin Pudi is the editor, Ashok did the artwork, Chaitanya Prasad and Shreemani wrote the lyrics, Raju Sundaram is the choreographer, Venkat is in charge of the stunt choreography, King Solomon wrote the dialogue, Alagarsamy Mayan did the visual effects, and Annapurna Studios did the digital imaging.

Release Date | When and Where to Watch?

Shakuntalam has been delayed many times for different reasons, but the creators have decided to make it available in 3D before it finally comes out. If you want to see the whole movie in a theatre, you should wait until the official date is announced.

We all know that the movie is being made by Gunasekhar, who is a very talented person. He is known for making movies with production values that were ahead of their time. For the movie Okkadu with Mahesh Babu, he built a set of the Charminar. At the time, it was the largest set ever built in Tollywood. He also said that Shakuntalam has enough space to build huge sets that will be a treat for the eyes in the theatre.


Shakuntalam is ready for the public to see, but turning it into 3D has taken a while. Still, we could expect the movie to come out in March 2022. The Shakuntal trailer won’t be ready for a while, but we can expect a teaser or other video to give us more information in the meantime. You can only see the movie poster for Shakuntalam, which you can see here.

Budget and Collection

Shakuntalam has a budget of about 65 crores, which is more than Samantha’s, but the people who made it believed in the story, so let’s hope for the best. Shakuntalam is a period movie about women, and in Telugu, we don’t see many movies about women, let alone big-budget movies about women.

Movie Review and Ratings

Shakuntalam, which is due out in March 2022, is something that many people are looking forward to. Shakuntalam is a movie about women that did well both critically and commercially, just like Samantha‘s last movie, Yashoda, which has a 7.2/10 rating on IMDb.


Shakuntalam is the most expensive and important movie in Samantha’s career. Gunashekar recently quit working on Rana’s Hirnya Kasyapu movie so that he could only work on Shakuntalam.
