Krishna Talkies: Ajay Rao's performances elevates this interesting thriller

Part horror, part whodunnit would be the perfect description of director Vijay Anand's Krishna Talkies. The film's story revolves around a single-screen theatre and the number 13. The dreaded number poses a threat with a series of deaths and accidents occurring on this particular date, and especially to the ones with ticket number 13 on the balcony of the theatre. 

Are these murders? If so, who is the killer? Or is it because of paranormal activity? Ajay, a journalist, visiting his hometown Mudigere, sets out to find the culprit. His motive behind the investigation is to find the truth behind the death of his best friend Suri (Chikkanna), and the disappearance of Parimala (Sindhu Loknath). He seeks all possible help from the local police. The strange deaths and the mystery around the number 13 make the investigation tougher. How Ajay digs out the truth forms the rest of the story. 

Cast: Ajay Rao, Apurva, Sindhu Loknath, Chikkanna, and Pramod Shetty

Director : Vijay Anand

Krishna Talkies is an interesting suspense thriller with an ample dose of horror. Director Vijay Anand, who has also written the story, screenplay, dialogues and lyrics, delivers an intriguing film. 

The story that begins at a slow pace brilliantly sets up the mood for horror while making us think along with the investigator onscreen.  

While the film is not without its flaws, the protagonist, played by Ajay Rao, makes this plot consistently interesting. He takes us through some case studies and the climax with supernatural elements feels believable because of this. Though the investigation is not deeply explored, the way it is conveyed visually keeps us on the edge of the seat, curious to know the lead's next move.

The film, which moves with mostly dialogue-driven scenes, gets ample support from its actors. Apurva, who plays the lady love of Ajay, becomes the starting point of the whole investigation. 

Despite having multiple factors that draw attention, Ajay Rao's performance is undoubtedly the USP of Krishna Talkies, which is worthwhile entry in the genre.
