There have been other crime thrillers, but Atharva stands out because it emphasizes the role that the Clues Team plays in solving crimes. After starting the job, the protagonist solves a few cases, and the first hour of these scenes is intense.

In the movie, Karthik Raju had a passable performance. Simran Choudhary performs admirably in a small part. Ayraa Jain performed a good job. The movie moves along quickly in the first half. Despite a brief lull in the action, Joshni’s character’s murder sets the movie back on course.

The second half has problems, even though the first half is passable. The primary issue is that everything is settled swiftly, which eliminates the element of interest. Given the nature of its subject, the film is intended to be subtle, but after a while it gets loud and ostentatious with superfluous heroism.

The speech is terrible, with the long monologue in the first half feeling particularly out of place. Additionally, the speech makes the warning moments seem ordinary. Atharva serves as an illustration of how unneeded music can negatively impact a movie. The movie would have been much better without those songs because the lyrics are awful.


Overall, Atharva is a mediocre suspense thriller that emphasizes the value of the hints section. The first half was engaging and had some suspenseful moments despite its shortcomings, but as the second half begins, everything goes crazy. Atharva’s shortcomings include terrible music, an overemphasis on heroics, and a mediocre second half.
