The daughter of a wealthy businessman is kidnapped, but this act has more than what meets the eye. On the other side, there's a haunted old bungalow, which gives people terrors and a team tries to unravel its mystery. What's the connection between these two?
Debutant director Navaneeth's first venture is a thrilling roller coaster ride. The film, which came with a lot of expectations because it comes from the stable of the 6-5=2 makers, doesn't disappoint. There are enough moments of fright, terror, thrill and comedy, to keep the audience entertained almost throughout the film, for there are many twists in the plot that ensure the mind has something to chew on right till the end.
The film follows two plots, there's a kidnapping plot being hatched by a group of youngsters on one side and the other sees a delapitated old bungalow on the outskirts of Bengaluru, which is believed to be haunted. How do these two plots get interlinked? Is there a ghost? Who is the real villain in the film? These are what constitute the plot.
The film is technically sound. Ravi Basrur's background score and Mohan's cinematography are real assets to the film, making Karvva technically rich. The screenplay is clever. The first half might seem a little lagging, only because the second half is packed with a lot more thrills and twists, bettering the first. The locations add to the story.
The casting is good, with no character seeming out of place. Each person fits the bill. Tilak as the rich brat, Rohith as the smart conman and Vijay Chandour as the entertaining dubbing artiste ensure they keep the audience hooked with their performances, not letting down the engaging storyline that Karvva has.
The makers had mentioned how this film has the thrill and entertainment factor that an Abbas-Mastan film in Bollywood has, and they don't fail those words. How? Go find out yourself.
