Atharva gets a job with the Clues Team, where he uses his excellent investigative skills to solve many clues. After reaching the crime scene, Atharva runs into his college sweetheart Nithya (Simran). Gradually Nithya grows closer to Atharva.

Nithya introduces her friend Joshni Hooparikar (Aira Jain) Atharva, an actress known for her Tollywood films. But then one day Joshni is found dead in her room with her boyfriend Shiv. Police believe Shiv shot Joshni and then committed suicide.

Overall, Atharva is a down-to-earth thriller that emphasizes the importance of the clue research department. Though it has its flaws, the first half of the film was entertaining and had some interesting and entertaining moments.

However, things get messy and problematic early in the second half. Too much emphasis is placed on portraying the main character as a hero, which detracts from the suspense. The music is negative. And the entire second half of the film feels much weaker compared to the promising first half.

So while Atharva started out interesting by the unveiling of an experienced clue team doing the murder case of an actress, it got down to the latter parts Superhero angles, bad music, second half of bad are major flaws that drag down what could have been a solid thriller thriller.
