Krishna (Balu Nagendra), an auto driver, is carefree and in love with Rukmini (Sangeetha Bhat). One day, the police question him about three missing men. Krishna proceeds to tell a story that has romance, comedy and horror elements, all featuring his auto. What’s the truth?
The actors in Kapata Nataka Paatradhaari are exceptional, and they elevate the tale written by first-time director Krish.
Stars: Sangeetha Bhat, Jai Dev, Balu Nagendra
The story confines itself to a few locations and characters, yet still manages to be intriguing with some unexpected plot twists. Horror elements are present but not overdone, which is a relief. A couple of songs interrupt the flow of the film and could have been left out. Since the story is shorter than two hours, it seems concise and meaningful. Mentioning the story will take away from the experience of watching the movie.
Kapata Nataka Paatradhaari is definitely worth a visit to the movies if you’re looking for something different.
