Karthikeya 2 Telugu Movie 2022 Cast, Story


During his visit to a library in Greece, Ranganath Rao, an archaeologist, and professor stumbles upon a book written by Ptolemy that reveals Shri Krishna had entrusted his friend Uddhava with an anklet that contains solutions to all the deadly problems humans will face in the Kali Yuga that followed the end of Dvapara Yuga.

Meanwhile, in Hyderabad, Karthikeya “Karthik”, a doctor who values science and logic, is suspended from his job for slapping a mayor who attempted to perform a Yagna in the ICU for his son. Karthik’s father fractures his leg, and a plant of Tulasi in front of their house is hit by an ox, leading his mother to believe that her family is being punished for not fulfilling a vow made to Shri Krishna years ago.

To appease his mother’s beliefs, Karthik takes her to Dwarka, where his uncle Sadananda, an ardent devotee of Shri Krishna, resides. One night, Karthik encounters a mortally wounded Ranganath Rao, who tries to convey something to him. However, when Karthik goes to get an auto-rickshaw to take him to the hospital and returns, Rao is nowhere to be found.
