Although “Karthikeya 2” is built on an intriguing premise, the film’s moralizing tone prevents it from developing into an engaging thriller.

A review of the film "Karthikeya 2"

Imagine The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown being retold in an Indian setting, with the narrative being built around the symbolism and semiotics of Hinduism. Karthikeya 2, written and directed by Chandoo Mondeti, takes place in such a zone. The film’s protagonists, played by Nikhil Siddhartha and Anupama Parameswaran, are following clues and attempting to unearth concealed truths while members of a secret society are hot on their trail. The premise is also reminiscent of the book The Krishna Key, Key, written by Ashwin Sanghi. This is not to say that the stories are the same. However. However, there are some general parallels between them. These parallels include the presence of secret societies;; cryptic symbols and codes; anthropologists and archaeologists;; and the ever-present threat posed by individuals with hidden agendas.

In the Telugu film Karthikeya, directed by Chandoo Mondeti in 2014, the protagonist, an atheist named Dr. Karthik (played by Nikhil), is an investigator who visits the Subrahmanya swami temple in Subrahmanyapuram. In order to solve the mysteries that surround the temple, Dr. Karthik must rely on science and logic.He is so driven by his natural curiosity that he doesn’t believe in superstitions and instead looks into murders that haven’t been solved. He is so driven by his natural curiosity that he doesn’t believe in superstitions and instead looks into murders that haven’t been solved.

The events of Karthikeya 2 represent a new chapter in the life of Dr. Karthik. Curiosity continues to motivate him, but the recent turn of events has convinced him that it is no longer appropriate to evaluate everything through the prism of science and logic. A disclaimer at the beginning of the movie reveals that it is a work of fiction inspired by real events. In a later part of the movie, one of the characters explains that the godsgods are our ancestors,ancestors, and that what we call mythology is actually history. The crucial piece of evidence in this tale is an anklet worn by Lord Krishna, which has been secretly stashed away in a remote part of the planet and is said to hold the solutions to all the issues facing the world.

This story gets its start when Prof. Rao, an archaeologist, visits a library in Pantainos, Greece, and picks up on a few historical facts there. This is what gets the ball rolling for the rest of the story. When Dr. Karthik goes to Dwaraka with his mother, he finds himself in a precarious circumstance because he is in no way affiliated with the professor (Tulasi). Karthik receives assistance from the professor’s granddaughter Mugdha (Anupama), who attended Banaras Hindu University and majored in Hindu semiotics.The events leading up to their meeting are a lot like those in The Da Vinci Code.

Along with Karthik’s uncle Sadananda (Srinivasa Reddy), a devoted follower of Krishna, the protagonists embark on an exciting journey that takes them to Dwaraka, Beyt Dwaraka, Mathura, Radha Kund, Bundelkhand, and Himachal Pradesh. As the story progresses across these locations, the production designer Sahi Suresh, the cinematographer Karthik Ghattamaneni, and the editor Kaala Bhairava do an excellent job, and they are helped in the appropriate way by Kaala Bhairava’s background score.

The story, on the other hand, does not make the most of the opportunities it presents to be a nail-biting thriller. The actions of the protagonists are overexplained in a number of the scenes’ dialogues.The characters have to say things back and forth that aren’t necessary, which slows down the solution to the main problem.

Additionally, there is a lack of seamless integration between the elements of religion and terrorismterrorism.The story keeps stopping to preach and praise different ideas, which takes away from the overall power of the thriller.

There are a few different items, such as an old telescope, a building in the shape of a peacock, and an anklet, that are responsible for moving the plot along. The hunt for the anklet, set against a religious and cultural background, might also have been the basis for a fantastical story, similar to those told in the old Kodi Ramakrishna films. Only in the final act does the film take on a more suspenseful tone, laying the groundwork for Karthikeya 3.

The performances, including Nikhil’s understated acting and Anupama’s powerful performance, are in line with what the plot demands of them. Harsha Chemudu plays a friendly Muslim driver who assists the protagonists in their search. Both Praveen and Satya have cameos in this episode.

Karthikeya 2 is being co-produced by the same people who were responsible for The Kashmir Files, and they are aware of how to capitalise on the current social and political climate. If the narrative of Karthikeya 2 had been stripped of its moralising undertones, the film would have been a riveting thriller.
