Karthikeya 2 Movie Review – Satisfying Mythological Ride


Satisfying Mythological Ride


‘U/A’ certified, 2h 25m.

Nikhil-Siddhartha-Karthikeya-2-Telugu Film ReviewWhat is the movie about?

Karthikeya 2, the core story of an adventure thriller, is centered around Sri Krishna’s anklet. What is its history? Where is it now? Who is behind it and how Dr. Karthikeya accidentally finds him deeply involved in the mystery associated with it is the basic plot of the film.


Nikhil has been making movies selectively and doing his best in recent years. Karthikeya 2 is no different. The actor comes up with a neat act without typical heroism. He delivers according to the context without going overboard anywhere. There are also no commercial attributes that make the work much more focused and intense. The quality makes this role stand out in his films, even if there are no mass “performance” moments that stand out.

The fact that Anupama Parameswaran is a heroine is just a technical detail. She is another essential part of the story rather than a heroine in the typical sense. She is an essential gang member and her character is designed to advance the main story. Anupama does well in the limited score she gets.


Director Chandoo Mondeti came on the scene with Nikhil starrer Karthikeya. Yes, the original film marked its debut. Now, years later, he comes with a second chapter.

For the uninitiated, Karthikeya 2 has nothing to do with the first part. It is a standalone film in which the protagonist from the first part takes a different journey. So Karthikeya aka Karthik is now a doctor and takes on a new case.

A significant difference between Karthikeya and Karthikeya 2 is the shift in tone. The first was really a small-scale thriller with horror and mystery elements. The second chapter is an upgrade in all departments. It has now turned into an adventure genre with the characteristics of mysticism and suspense. It’s in Indiana Jones’ space, and we have a doctor leading the expedition.

The introduction should not be missed. It is the starting point and the adventure that leads to it. Everyone is looking for Shree Krishna’s anklet, and it is told convincingly despite the presence of many threads and characters.

The first thing that stands out positively is the background and the location. They contribute to the spiritual feeling and give a fresh feeling everywhere. The whole first half progresses interestingly, mixing the different threads and bringing the hero forward and in the middle of the core theme.

The interval bang is good. It does its job of arousing curiosity for the second half.

After the break, things turn to Mathura and the story focuses more on the core drama. The quest is neatly laced with dialogues that have to do with God and humanity. This aspect elevates the procedure along with the associated background score.

The problem, minor problems, comes through some rushed bits. They seem cinematic and somewhat unconvincing. It is what we call the scenario of convenience. Things just happen that advance the story without making you feel good. But it’s not quite the case and is just a tiny speck in the bigger picture.

Also when it comes to adventure dramas, the story becomes formal and lacks involvement when one easily leads to the other. That’s not the case here, because there’s more to it than just the formula. The ending sums it up nicely.

Overall, Karthikeya 2 is a bigger, better and more focused story than the first. It usually delivers and leaves us with a satisfied look at a fresh product. It should definitely be the first choice to watch this weekend.

Karthikeya 2 is a content-driven fare where the hero makes the most of the heavy lifting. There are other characters, but they are mostly bits and pieces type. But most importantly, these little bits are needed to make the film as a whole come alive. Be it Anupama Parameswaran or Aditya Menon, they have small parts but do their job neatly.

Srinivas Reddy plays a supporting role that provides comedic relief in some places. Viva Harsha is fine. He could have been used better. Anupam Kher making his Telugu debut is seen in a critical block. He justifies his presence with an impactful episode. It stays within the context of the film and doesn’t seem like much on the surface, but is nevertheless essential to the proceedings. The rest of the actors are ok in minor appearances.

Music Director-Kaala-BhairavaMusic and other departments?

Kaala Bhairava provides the music for the film. Considering the mystery-thriller genre, the young musician has done an effective job. It helps create the right mood. The sacred chants and slokas fit well into the story and evoke the divine feeling necessary for the story.

Karthik Ghattamaneni takes care of both the cinematography and the editing. Both are sufficient. The first in particular is further enhanced by the locations. The team did a fantastic job selecting the locations. It adds to the grandeur and makes the movie look like a biggie. The writing is good. The critical passages about God and divinity hook the audience. The production values ​​are fantastic, and as mentioned before, this makes the film look much bigger.

Karthikeya 2 pre-release talk:

Nikhil Siddharth of Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada and Arjun Suravaram fame is back with another outing, Karthikeya 2. Chandoo Mondeti directs the supernatural thriller. It is a sequel to his 2014 film Karthikeya and will hit theaters on August 13, 2022.

The sequel factor is Karthikeya 2’s biggest USP. Chandoo Mondeeti, who directed the original, is also directing the sequel. He has increased both the scale and the background of the film. The director hopes that the intriguing element surrounding the mythology will resonate with the public.

Nikhil Siddharth, who has only had a few failures in the past decade (after 2012), hopes the public will continue to support him as they did before the pandemic. The subject is also right up his alley. The follow-up factor helps his case further.

Kaala Bhairava provides the music for the mystery thriller. Success here will take him to the next level along with the hero and the heroine. Anupama Parameswaran plays the heroine while Anupam Kher makes his Telugu debut in a pivotal role. The fact that horror comedy is outdated and yet Karthikeya 2 intrigues the audience is testament to the power of its content. It should suffice to say how well the story has gone down.
