Kamina, which is remake of critically-acclaimed Bollywood film Johnny Gaddaar - a neo-noir thriller film written and directed by Sriram Raghavan. But he has failed to make it an interesting watch due to his poor directorial work.
Taking the basic story from Johnny Gadar, Lakshmikanth has re-rewritten the script in a different way. He has made several changes in the story to suit the taste of Telugu audience, but the result is that he has failed to execute his ideas on screen. A little more homework by him should have made the film an interesting fare.
The movie revolves around a police officers recounting a story of missing money, which results in lies, deceit, betrayal and death. Unlike the original, Kameena is very boring and predictable in the second half. Barring a few scenes, the movie has a slow and dragging narration, which kills the interest of the viewers.
