Karthi, Nayantara, Sri Divya, Vivek
Dream Warrior Pictures
A fantasy adventure film with 'black magic' and some eerie moments. Lace it with an epic drama that involves warlords and chieftains crossing swords.
Karthi makes a daring experiment. He appears in two different roles that includes - a black magician and an obsessed warlord Raj Nayak.Directed by Gokul and produced by Dream Warriors, Kashmora features Nayanthara and Sri Divya in female leads.
Vivekh, Sharath Lohitashwa, Madhusudhan Rao and many others are in the cast. Om Prakash is the cinematographer, while VJ Sabu Joseph has handled the editing department. Santhosh Narayanan is the music director of Kashmora.Kashmora (Karthi) is a fraud who feeds on people’s fear and ignorance in the name of ghosts and dark powers.
He makes people believe that he has supernatural powers and plays with their superstitions. He plans the problems and solves them.One fine day a local politician Dhanakoti sends all the documents and money along with gold and diamonds to his house to put them away from the sight of Income Tax officials.
Knowing this Kashmora’s family runs away with them and are trapped in an old palace of Rathna Mahadevi (Nayanthara). Why are they trapped there? How they escape from the palace? Who is Rathna Mahadevi and what is her story forms the rest.Karthi steals the show as Kashmora as well as Raj Nayak.
His performance and body language deserve special mention and his hardwork is visible in every frame.Sri Divya plays an urban girl in Western outfits. Vivekh is good as Karthi’s father.
Nayanthara who comes in flashback has a very limited screen space but manages to leave an impact.The strength of the movie is its technical team. Those behind has ensured that everything looks grand and rich on screen.
The VFX shots are planned and executed well. OM Prakash uses different tones to capture the Kashmora and Raj Nayak portions. The extraordinary visuals especially towards the second half is the movie's strength.
Kaashmora - Super and special
