Kaashmora Movie ReviewOct 31, 2016 04:11 AM IST
Karthi enjoys a good fan following in the Telugu states and his straight Telugu movie, 'Oopiri', garnered him accolades. Now 'Kaashmora', the Telugu dubbed version of a Tamil movie with the same name has hit the theaters. The film, directed by Gokul, sees Karthi in two different roles and his looks have grabbed the attention of everyone before the release. Nayanthara and Sri Divya paired opposite him in the movie. Let's see if this movie lives up to the hype.
Kaashmora (Karthi) dupes people by pretending to be possessing some powers and encashes fears of people, who believe that he can talk with ghost. Yamini (Sri Divya) is a researcher, who tries to expose Kashmora's true colours. Eventually, Kaashmora ends up in a 7 centuries old bungalow, where the spirit of Raj Naik (also Karthi) resides. Kaashmora gets trapped in the bungalow and Raj Naik decides to use him for his selfish gains. The rest of the story is all about who Raj Naik is and why is locked up in that bungalow, what is Nayanthara's character etc.
Technically, the film is excellent. The visuals are stunning. The art is superb. Background score is apt. The story and screenplay are well-written. The VFX work in Raj Naik's episodes is done brilliantly.
As Raj Naik, a lecherous king, and Kaashmora, who cons people by pretending to be dealing with ghosts, Karthi gives an outstanding performance. Nayanthara is ok. Sri Divya gets to play a small role, but she is good. The performances of other actors are also good in the movie.
Art work, Cinematography and VFX
'Kaashmora' is a well made movie with good story. It has comedy in the first half and the fantasy element in the second half is also good. Karthi's superb performance in both the roles is a treat to watch. The art work and visuals are very good and so is the VFX. The excessive run-time is a minus to the film. But all in all, the film is a good entertainer.
Kashmora - An enjoyable horror comedy
