· Engaging story
· Little bit rushed in part
Performance: Coming to Nikhil, he suits in the role of doctor perfectly. It is quite surprising and impressive to see him perform the way he did. He had a lot of scope to showcase his talent and he delivers it with a lot of ease. Anupama Parameswaran as Mugdha is crucial to unravel the mystery. Anupam Kher plays an important role in assisting Karthikeya as he justifies with his role. Srinivas Reddy entertains with a few jokes in between the action sequences. Praveen and Satya, who play Nikhil’s buddies are fine. Viva Harsha is ok. The rest of the cast perform accordingly.
Technical: The film owes a lot to cinematographer Karthik Ghattamaneni and music director, Kaala Bhairava for creating the right ambience and mood for a suspense thriller like this. Karthikeya 2 is shot in some stunning locations that fit the plot perfectly. Camerawork is superb as the entire set up is designed exceptionally well by the art department. The good thing about Karthikeya 2 is that it sticks to its storyline and everyone seems to know what they are doing. It is one of the finer films made in the recent past and in times like these, that in itself is like a big compliment. Major plus point of this film is the interesting story. Dialogues written are decent, and suit the mood of the film. Coming on the work of Chandoo Mondeti, he made a brilliant choice when he chose to incorporate the most precious anklet of Lord Krishna as the narrative’s bridge between the Dwaraka and modern world.
Analysis: Karthikeya 2 is technically a brilliant film. It is an interesting mystery which makes you stick to your seats with its racy narration. The suspense factor and mythological touch have been superbly executed.
