Psycho Shankra is the story of a real-life psycho killer Jai Shanker, who escaped from Parappana Agrahara Prison in Bangalore. He has a love life too. Jai Shanker is a convict in 30 rape cases and murders. While he was arrested and jailed in Parappana Agrahara Prison, he escaped from the jail by jumping over the 30 feet electric fence. After he escapes from the prison, the police were tracing him seriously and found him in a week time. The one-week happenings in locating the killer form the story of Psycho Shankra.
Pranav, the debutant actor, has shown his talent well. All the other stars including Sharath Lohitashwa, Yashas and Vijay Chendoor have brought out their best.
Psycho Shankra is scripted and directed by Punith. Before shooting this film, the director has gone through several tests, analysis and everything he needed for the story. Casting is good and the leads and the supporting stars fit in their roles perfectly. The technical values are good in Psycho Shankra. However, the narration has lost its focus while bringing in some specific details. Four subplots are involved in the story and the director seems to have found it hard to link all those.
What’s Not There?
Although it is a flick of a psycho killer, the film has got its own viewers. As it is a different plot, the film buffs are ready to watch the movie without any regrets.
