Samantha's Shaakuntalam has released in theatres yesterday.

 The film has opened up with disastrous reviews from critics and the audience as well.

 Though Samantha nailed her character, VFX and 3D effects are the major drawbacks.

 Guess what, Director Guna Shekar has wasted 60% of the film's budget on VFX.,

 According to reports Guna Shekar spent 40crs for Shakuntalam VFX and 3d Effects.

 Most of the audience felt it would be better to watch the film in 2D rather than watching in 3D.

 Audience slammed that the VFX of the film was somewhat like a cartoon animation.

Shaakuntalam is made with a lavish budget of 65crs
