Release Date | When and Where to Watch?

Shakuntalam has been postponed several times due to many reasons, as the film has done all the work long ago, but before releasing it, the filmmakers have decided to release it in 3D. If you want to watch the full movie then you need to wait for an official theatrical release date announcement.

As we all know Gunasekhar, who is a very talented director, is in charge of the movie. He is known for making movies with sets that have never been seen before. For Okkadu, with Mahesh Babu, he built a set of Charminar, which at the time was the largest set ever built in Tollywood. In the same way, he said that Shakuntalam has the space to build sets that are so big that it will be a feast for the eyes in the theatres.


Shakuntalam is all set to release but it’s been taking time to convert the film into 3D, but we can expect the film to be released in March 2023. The trailer of Shakuntal will take some time in between we can expect the teaser or any information video about the film. Shakuntalam makers have released only the motion poster you can have a look here.

Budget and Collection

Shakuntalam is a female-centric period film and in Telugu, we rarely see female-oriented movies, and that too this type of big-scale film is the first time in Telugu I guess, and talking about the budget of Shakuntalam is about 65 crores this is more than Samantha’s market but the makers believed in content and let’s hope for the best.

Movie Review and Ratings

Samantha‘s last film Yashoda is also a female-centric film and it did well in terms of both reviews and numbers it has a 7.2/10 IMDb rating and a lot of people looking forward to Shakuntalam and the film is expected to hit the screens in March 2023.


Shakuntalam is the most expensive film in Samantha’s career and this film is the crucial film for Gunashekar recently he walked out of Rana’s Hirnya Kasyapu film and now his complete concentration is on Shakuntalam only.
