Review 

Though the movie has an interesting storyline which can engage the audience with twists and turns, the lack of a racy screenplay became the biggest disappointment. Though the film is good at times, there is no logic in some scenes whereas the crucial scenes are slow and boring. The main plot got extremely stretched which became the biggest setback of the film and even the emotions also felt forced.  

Director Suku Purvaj has failed to maintain the suspense throughout the film and keep the audience hooked. He made an effort to increase the pace in the second half, but the lack of logic made some scenes silly. Even the characterizations of hero and heroine are not written properly. The dragged screenplay and weak emotions will disturb the watching experience of the audience. Music is the biggest plus point for the film. Ashirvad should definitely get some extra brownie points for his amazing BGM. Cinematography is top-notch. Even editing is also quite good. Despite being made on a tight budget, the production values are good enough.  

Despite being a newcomer, Arvind Krishna delivered an amazing performance in the film. Especially his dialogue delivery and body language are too good. Be it in emotional scenes or suspense scenes, he carried his role with ease. Srijitaa is beautiful and will definitely give a glamorous treat to the audience. She also impressed with her performance in the film. The actor who played the hero's friend and the police officer did a great job. The rest of the actors also made their presence felt and justifying their roles. 

Verdict 

Despite having a few thrilling moments, 'Shukra' gives an overall underwhelming experience for the audience. The film has some bright and intriguing moments that can thrill the viewers.
