Analysis

From the posters and trailers, Kaashmora has managed to create a curiosity among movie buffs with its period characters. While Karthi’s ancient role is called Raj Nayak, Nayanthara is playing Ratna Mahadevi . When it comes to movie Kaashmora starts with an interesting Fantasy flashback that happened 700 years ago.

The main plot of the film is the connection between a 700-year-old curse and the present Karthi’s family . The visual effects are good, Music and BGM are ok and the cinematography is excellent.

In the first half, Kathi and his family cheating public on the name of spirits/souls. Fooling people with remote control instrument bring entertainment. The actual story begins when this family lands in a Bungalow. The pre-interval scene started getting into the story. Overall the first half was average. The comedy portions kept the film going. The combinations of comedy star Vivek and Karthi is the biggest plus of the movie.

In the second half, The 700 years old Kindom sets and the VFX match Baahubali standards .The war episodes are really appealing and look soo good. However, it lacks comedy that was in first half. But the excitements exists till the very end. Nayanthara portions require special mention, her presence makes the film one-step ahead . The second half was unexpected after an average first half , especially the war scenes. The artwork is too good and requires a special mention.
