Rating: 2.25/5.0


Siddhu (Vasanth Sameer), who works in a mobile show room, falls in love with Mythri (Sahar Afsa) ,when he sees her at Hero Honda bike show room where his friend works.

From then on he tries to impress her and when he was about to express his love to her, he gets a shocking news.

To find out the shocking news and what is the mystery behind the mysterious death of three girls which include Mythri's sister Divya (Sandhya Peddada) and where the investigation by special officer Ravi (Ravi Varma) leads to, watch Karta Karma Kriya on screen.


Vasanth Sameer on debut is OK in his role. He carried himself well and he performed stunts with ease. However he should improve up on his dialogue delivery, expression and emotions.

Sehar Afsa, another new comer who got a good role on debut performed well with in her limits. She is OK looks wise and did well with her performance. Little bit of honing her skills will do her a world of good.

Ravi Varma performed well and stole the show in the second half dominating everyone with his dialogue delivery and body language.

Others like Sri Harsha, 'Jabardasth' Ram Prasad, Kadambari Kiran, Neelima, Jayaprakash, Sri Sudha, Kashi Vishwanath, Sandhya Peddada, Ramana Reddy, Krishna Teja and Mahendar performed according to their roles.


Shravan Bharadwaj's music and songs did not appeal at all. Couple of songs in fact acted as speed breakers. However he elevated the scenes with his background music.

Pravin Pudi failed with his editing. He left many drags in the film which affected the final outcome. Had he done away with them of which many of them appeared in the first half, result would have been different.

Cinematography is beautiful and natural and scenic beauty captured elevated the film to another level. Camera angles generated interest among movie lovers especially in the second half.

Director Nagu Gavara should have added few more twists and turns and few more emotions by doing away with the drags in the first half, for better impact.

Production values of Tirumala Tirupati Venkateswara films are good.

Plus Points

Second half

Few twists



Minus Points

Illogical scenes

Missing emotions

First half

Drags, Slow pace

Story, Screenplay, Direction



Director Nagu Gavara on debut tried to attract movie lovers with a romantic thriller. He starts off on an interesting note and when everyone expected the narration in a similar manner, he loses plot completely in the first half before coming back to the main point just before the interval bang.

In between many illogical scenes, listless narrations, love angle came testing the patience of the viewers. Second half however picks up pace and the entry of Ravi Varma changes the narration drastically.

The investigation scenes, except for the few loopholes ,here and there are shown in an interesting manner. Nagu Gavara exhibited two shades of his talent. He looked listless in the first half and spotless in the second half.

Had he maintained similar intensity right from the start to finish with his story, screenplay and direction, he would have made a powerful impact. Now it turned out to be a half baked effort from the makers.

Final Talk

Karta Karma Kriya fails to give powerful kick.
