Synopsis

A modern day’s look at India’s growing economy and fast cash culture that the modern Indian youth are enticed by.
Told through the actions of 6 people living different lives, the plot is interconnected through a single thread – easy money.

This film features world-class performances by Vinay Forrt, Shani Shaki, Jinu Joseph and every other cast involved in it. Karma Cartel is narrated in a Docu-fiction and realistic style and maintains the humour that makes it a great viewing.

Winner of three international film awards, and critically lauded for its production style similarities with Dogme 95 filmmaking, this Malayalam (Subtitled in English) indie explores the urban and fast-cash cultures of modern India, where feelings and promises are of less value.

Reviews

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

– Maneesh Narayanan

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.

കഥയിലല്ല, കഥ പറയുന്ന രീതിയിലാണ് കര്‍മ്മ കാര്‍ട്ടെലിന്‍റെ പുതുമയും ശക്തിയും.

This film demonstrates how realistic and interesting can acting be when a director allows such freedom with actors. If you have cinema in you, this movie will inspire you!!

This avant garde, dogme 95 film is a landmark in Malayalam cinema. Yes, Karma Cartel is something special.

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