Reviews

കര്‍മ്മാ കാര്‍ട്ടെല്‍ കയ്യടിക്കേണ്ട പരീക്ഷണമാണ്. ആസ്വാദകരെ മണ്ടന്‍മാരാക്കുന്ന ആവര്‍ത്തനപ്പതിപ്പുകളും, മെഗാസീരിയലുകളെ ചുരുക്കിയെടുത്ത കണ്ണീര്‍പ്പടങ്ങളും പതിവാക്കിയ വെള്ളിയാഴ്ചകളില്‍ കര്‍മ്മാ കാര്‍ട്ടേല്‍ ചെറുതല്ലാത്ത അമ്പരപ്പാണ്.

This film is a well crafted one. But this does not mean that Karma Cartel will only attract world film / art house movie lovers. This is a creation for all kind of film lovers.

അടുത്തകാലത്ത് നന്നായി രസിച്ച, നന്നായി ചിരിച്ച, വ്യത്യസ്ഥത ആസ്വദിച്ച മറ്റൊരു സിനിമയില്ല.

A movie that you should experience yourself if you love an experimental film and that too a first of a kind for Malayalam audience.
