Nikhil’s Karthikeya 2 Review & Ratings | Hit or Flop?

Karthikeya 2 Movie Review: Nikhil is a bankable star in Telugu movies. He showed his talent by choosing original plots and making back the money that was put into his movies. The Tamil remake Arjun Suravaram, which came out in 2019, was his most recent full-length movie. After the first movie was a huge hit, they got back together to make Karthikeya 2. Karthikeya 2 finally came out in theatres on August 13, 2022, after many delays. Let’s look at what people have said about the movie to see if it’s worth seeing.

Karthikeya 2 Movie Review


Karthikeya is a doctor by trade, and he has always been interested in solving old puzzles. Karthikeya looks into the strange things that are happening in Dwaraka, just like he did in Subramaniapuram in the first part. Some of these old beliefs and Lord Krishna’s influence can be found in Dwaraka.

The story and pace of the movie may remind you of other movies in the series. On the other hand, the idea behind the movie is interesting, and the mix of mystery and fantasy keeps us watching until the end credits. The movie’s intermission has a lot of twists, and the second half keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. The ending of the movie was satisfying and clear.

According to the performances, Nikhil’s role as Karthikeya, a character who is always looking for answers to questions that don’t have answers, once again holds the audience’s attention. Anupama Parameswaran delivered a magnificent performance. Even though Anupam Kher is a good actor, the voice used to dub him does not sound like him. Both Srinivasa Reddy’s comedic timing and Aditya Menon’s amazing performance as a horrible person will make you laugh. Everyone else did what was expected of them given the circumstances.

Aside from a few shots with visual effects, Karthikeya 2 looks great from a technical point of view. The music in Kaala Bhairava is just okay, but the background music is great. If you want to see a movie that will leave you speechless, you don’t have to look any further than Karthik Gattamneni’s latest. The places in Kashmir are especially beautiful. It was easy to make the changes.

Even though his last movie, Savyasachi, didn’t do well, Chandoo Mondeti seems to have gotten his filmmaking mojo back.

Karthikeya 2 is a movie that should only be seen in a theatre to get the most out of its beautiful sights and production values.

Rating: 3.75/5
