Unni Mukundan as investigation officer who tries to find out the truth and each step towards finding mystery remains us surprising. He is seen in a different set of get-ups to find out Mystery.

For what cause he is investigating so far? These all questions revealed in the first half. Arjun gets trapped by few Who all are they, what is the cause remains in the second half. Anoop Menon(Iqbal) enters in the second half with a big backdrop to the movie. His performance is good but his role is nothing new to support. Harish, Shivada, and Shruthi did their jobs well in respective roles.
Director Kannan Thamarakkulam portrayed Unni Mukundan character with required mass elements and action scenes. Director succeeded in maintaining thrills and mystery elements throughout the movie but fails to portray the film perfectly. Chanakya Thantram is an apt name for the movie as it consists of a lot of thrills and twists. Cinematography by Pradeep Nair was good editing would have been better. Shaan Rahman background music became a negative impact.
Chanakya Thantram comes with lot of twists and suspense which lefts you thrill
