Nassar delivers out his best as Gopichand’s Chief and Sunil had a decent role. Upen Patel too has a challenging role and he did it with perfection. All the other actors looked decent in their assignments.

The screenplay looked racy and the interesting twists leave the audience thrilled. The dialogues have been good and the narration was gripping. The music sounded decent and the background score for Chanakya is an asset. The production values have been grand enough and Thiru does a decent job in handling Chanakya.
