"Karma Cartel is a highly interesting film, made by an articulate and developing student of the game and it has a virulent strain of Tarantino (among many others) in its bloodstream."
"Karma Code is notable for its style and overall energy. Certain sequences just explode with visual power, and even the opening credits have a unique and wonderful aesthetic to them."
"Bharathan coolly wraps his film in gorgeous color photography by Shyju Khalid and an evocative music score by Michael Kristensen. “Karma Code” is an appealing, reflective short film."
"It’s (LIMBO) a sense that the person behind the camera has skill even if the equipment has severe limitations. "
