Kaarni Kaarni Movie Story

Psychological thrillers are quite the favourite among storytellers on the big screen. This film tries to use the oft-employed trope of a single girl in a big house in the middle of nowhere trying to save herself from a psychotic killer. While the idea seems interesting and novel, the implementation is inconsistent. Yet, the film has a few tense moments that keep you on the edge of your seat, which is worth lauding. The story of the film progresses on two parallel tracks. On one side, there is a novelist who is speech-impaired and is trying to save her life from a killer who doesn't seem to be ready to give up until he gets her. The other side is an astute police officer, who is on the trail to solve the same case and nab this killer before he finds his bait. The film picks up steam when the killer lands up at the house of the protagonist. There are some good scenes there that hold the attention. The other track involving the police investigation seems rather pale and is a dampener in a thriller that otherwise showed a lot of potential. The protagonist and antagonist, played by Rashmi and Niranth, respectively, do a good job. This is an interesting premise and has its moments. If you like thrillers that employ some of the regular tropes then this might just pique your interest. But be warned that there are some parts that might not be on par with the genre and can be a let down in terms of consistency.
