Prassthanam is the Hindi remake of director Deva Katta’s 2010 Telugu political action drama with the same name. The film stars Sanjay Dutt, Ali Fazal, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Manisha Koirala, Amyra Dastur and Abhishek Diwan in the pivotal roles. The film is also written by Deva Katta and co-produced by Maanayata Dutt. It was released on Friday, September 20.
According to Box Office India, Prassthanam's 1st-day collection around Rs. 75 lakh. Talking about the characteristics of the film, it is a 141-minutes run-time movie. The two-minute 34-seconds Prassthanam trailer that was released in August this year shows how the war for legacy takes on loyalty and integrity. The plot of the film deals with complexities like morality, desire, right and wrong. Sanjay Dutt's character wants to check the loyalty of his son, and thus, the political family drama begins. In the trailer, Jackie Shroff is seen as Baldev Pratap Singh's yes-man whereas Chunky Panday is seen as his rival. It seems the film is inspired by Hindu mythological dramas, Ramayana and Mahabharata. Both the ancient epic dramas portray the Hindu dharma and moral righteousness through family wars. Prassthanam is released in cinemas worldwide.
On the day of its release, Sanjay Dutt tweeted:
