As one should be aware by now, Chanakya is a spy thriller. The genre is slowly becoming a regular one in Telugu cinema. It holds a lot of potential for action and thrill, but so far the full potential hasn’t been explored. Chanakya does not do anything to change it as well.

Every film has its own soul or an emotion on which the entire story is cooked up. Films with strong emotion will always connect to audience. Coming to Chanakya, the film lacked the strong and emotionally connecting point.
