KARVVA MOVIE REVIEW
Karvva is engaging the audience attention every minute. The film has a strong story and screenplay and has been shot in picturesque locales and that is enough reason why audiences would love it. Director Navaneeth has stated that the film is about the souls that do not attain salvation and are always roaming. The director has managed to justify the idea.
Karvva is a thriller. The film starts with a kidnap episode and becomes a horror-cum-thriller subject. If the audience think that the director has two stories to tell he gives a twist towards the interval that becomes the highlight of the film.
The film has been mostly shot in an old and a dilapidated bungalow. There are souls in the house and a game plan on the other side. If you are curious to know the reason for the incidences that happen in the house the movie is worth watching. The plus point of the film is the twists that the narrative gets every minute. You can expect the unexpected. The film also attracts attention for its production values.
Director Navaneeth has succeeded in maintaining a good tempo in the film’s narration without introducing unwanted characters or tracks. Tilak, Rohit, Anu, Anisha, Devaraj and all the artistes have done justice to their roles. By the way, the director has hinted that Karvva 2 is on the cards.
