Karthikeya 2 Movie Review: Actor Nikhil showed his talent by selecting fresh stories and recouping the money spent on his films, establishing himself as a bankable star in the Telugu cinema business. His most recent theatrical release was the 2019 Tamil remake “Arjun Suravaram.” The same team came together once more to deliver us Karthikeya 2 after the film’s enormous popularity. On August 13, 2022, Karthikeya 2 was finally released in theatres after several difficulties. Let’s examine the detailed assessment of the film to determine whether it is worthwhile to watch.
Karthikeya, a doctor by trade, has always been compelled to learn the solutions to the mysteries that have remained unsolved for a very long time. Similar to what happened in Subramaniapuram in the first instalment, Karthikeya investigates the mystery behind events that occur in Dwaraka. His quest for the truth introduces him to certain antiquated beliefs and the influence of Lord Krishna in Dwaraka.

You might notice some similarities between certain sequences and those in the original franchise because of the narration and overall flow of the new film. However, the movie’s premise is intriguing, and the addition of mystery and fantasy components to the plot keeps us interested until the very end. The movie’s intermission section has several intriguing turns, and the second half keeps the tension high until the end. The movie had a satisfactory ending with a clear explanation.
According to the performances, Nikhil once more dazzles the audience with his portrayal of Karthikeya, a character who is constantly looking for solutions to unanswered problems. Anupama Parameswaran performed admirably in the part. Despite Anupam Kher’s talent, the dubbing voice doesn’t seem to fit the actor. Aditya Menon is impressive in a bad part, while Srinivasa Reddy’s comic timing in a couple situations will make you smile. Every other actor performed their duties in accordance with the situation.
Other than a few VFX images, Karthikeya 2 looks fantastic technically. Although the music by Kaala Bhairava is passable, the movie’s background score is superb. In terms of his aesthetics, Karthik Gattamneni never fails to wow, and this film is no exception, boasting some breath-taking sights, particularly in the Kashmir-set portions. The editing was clear.
Chandoo Mondeti, whose previous film Savyasachi failed to make an impression, appears to have found his directing mojo again.
Karthikeya 2 is a fantastic sequel that should only be seen in theatres because of its outstanding production and graphics.
