Karthikeya Leaves Audiences Hanging At The Edge Of Their Seats
29 January 2015 | by arundathiSee all my reviews

Karthikeya, a supernatural suspense thriller, has all the right elements to make this movie a super hit. The screenplay is a major plus as every dialogue and every scene had a purpose. It is directed in such a way where things are slowly unraveling allowing the audience to enjoy the whole ride. The camera angles really add to the mystery by allowing the audience to keep guessing what is happening. The songs add to the flow, instead of distracting the audience.

The casting is great. All the characters have equal screen time so the audience is always left guessing. The lead pair Nikhil and Swati have great chemistry.

More importantly, the film questions our belief in God in a gentle way without attaching the belief.

However, a couple of areas need work. The animation of the snake, at times, looks fake. The other area is the climax. Unfortunately it fell a little flat in comparison to the build up.

Overall, this film is a must see and a rare treat for film watchers.
