Cast includes, apart from Indrajith, Thalaivasal Vijay,Padmini Kolhapuri, Nithya Menon etc. Music is scored by the veteran music director of Malayalam, Ouseppachan and cinematography is by R D Rajashekhar. Lets read on now and see how Karmayogi movie review goes.

After finding his first hundred day movie in ‘Beautiful’, it was mandatory for the lovers of good cinema to muse on V K Prakash’s next ‘Karmayogi’. Widely publicised as a desi version of ‘Hamlet’, that too in the scripts of Balram Mattanur, another national award winner, expectations were high on the movie, as it was also screened in the last year’s IFFI at Goa. But once into the movie, it is sorry to say that it fails to live up to the prospects.

The movie features Indrajith as Rudran (Indrajith), who is seeking truth and vengeance for his father’s death amid the sultry landscapes of Kerala. Following the tradition of the yogi community, his mother (played by Padminee Kolhapurie, debuting in Malayalam) has already married his father’s younger brother (Thalaivaasl Vijay). But Rudran who is a scholar and exponent of martial arts develop paranoia as he starts to see his father trying to communicate something to him. Rudran now starts to behave in uncharacteristic manners and tries to stay away from his childhood sweetheart (Nithya Menon) with whom his marriage is already set. He is currently into the ritualistic ‘bhikshadanam’ which also raise suspicion about his sanity and inevitable collapse into doom. With heart-wrenching emotions of the loss and turmoil in a man’s life, the movie follows Rudran’s effort to find the ultimate truth behind his father’s unexpected death.
