Prasthanam, starring Sanjay Dutt, Ali Fazal, Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey among others, is a political drama directed by Deva Katta. The movie is a Telugu remake with the same name, helmed by the same director in 2010. Now, nine years later the Hindi version of the film has been released today with nothing much to offer, which is plain sad as big talents have been put to mere waste. Prasthanam explores human nature, the fight between good and evil within our own selves and how the greed and hunger for political power often lead to bad consequences.
