The film is about a group of people who are trying to find an ancient treasure hidden in the temple. They have forces from all over India against them, but it’s not going down without one last effort!
“There are two types of people in this world,” begins Maayon, “those who see life as a series of chance events and those who believe everything happens for reasons beyond our understanding.” This statement sets up an interesting premise that will be explored throughout the film. From here on out we’re thrown into several different storylines where each character has their unique journey to tell us about how they’ve arrived at where we meet them – but more importantly what makes them tick!

The film gets the basics right by intriguingly combining mystery and mythology. On one end we have Arjun (Sibi Sathyaraj), a talented smuggler who works for Devarajan, putting up this team to steal a treasure hidden within an ancient temple; while on another he’s just your average Joe Everyman named “John”.
The temple is said to house a host of wonders and dangers. Local legend tells us that Lord Krishna came here after the war, resting on his armlet until it could be time for his return home; this place called ‘Gandharva Sthan’ plays music every night so you can hear them play if ever visit! A temple is a place of worship for Hindus, but it also houses some dangerous musical instruments. Anyone who hears the sound from these sacred drums either loses their mind or even dies! Will Arjun be able to succeed in his mission?
The Amazing Kishore has a few impressive set pieces, like the song during which Arjun uses his drone inside of the temple and creates an otherworldly sound. He also does shadow puppetry to explain the legend behind place as well! The final twist is very convincing too- it’s not what you think at all!
The staging in this film is so minimalist it borders on the abstract. Even when characters are talking, there’s little detail and no sense of place – just an endless road stretching into infinity with their voiceover narration playing overtop as if to say “you’re here.” The casting and characterization, too don’t work. Sibi Sathyaraj strains to pull off the layers in his complicated role while Tanya’s Anjana is mainly just there for tokenism of females’ presence on screen- she doesn’t have any real talk or substance at all!
The film’s score, though largely unmemorable in terms of melody and rhythm alike is emblematic of its bombastic nature. This may be because they were trying to make up by giving us something grandiose instead; unfortunately, it doesn’t work as well although we do get our own “desi version” (in more ways than one) of The Da Vinci Code!
