‘Karthikeya 2’ Is A Super Combo Of Myth And Mystery

Dr Karthikeya (Nikhil Siddharth) is expelled from the hospital he works in after assaulting a mayor conducting a religious ritual in the intensive care unit. Thereafter, his mother takes him to Dwaraka in Gujarat. An archaeologist in Dwaraka tells Karthikeya that he is the chosen one to perform a mission just before he dies. Mugdha (Anupama Parameswaran), the archaeologist’s granddaughter, saves him death, and together they investigate the strange events taking place. They learn of a covert organisation that guards Lord Krishna’s anklet.

A story full of intrigue

Nikhil delivers a remarkable performance. We see a lot of maturity and conviction in his acting. The whole movie revolves around him and he carries the film effortlessly. Anupama Parameswaran gets a very good role and plays it to perfection. Srinivas Reddy, who plays a disciple of Krishna, is in charge of delivering laughs and he succeeds. He is present throughout Karthikeya’s quest for the anklet. Anupam Kher gets a short role but is very impactful, especially in the scene in which he talks about Lord Krishna.

The movie has been expertly made by Chandoo Mondeti, who meets the challenge of adapting a mythologically inspired plot to the modern era. In addition to doing it well, he ensures that the movie contains equal amounts of humour, thrills and suspense. Kaala Bhairava’s background score is top-notch. Karthik’s visuals and the frames used in adventure episodes are praiseworthy.

WATCH OR NOT
Overall, ‘Karthikeya 2’ is a well-made adventure thriller with stunning visuals and interesting storytelling. The scale is humongous, and the execution is exceptional.

Director: Chandoo Mondeti
