User Reviews

a well crafted movie with realism added to its making and wonderful songs
18 January 2017 | by (uae) – See all my reviews

my rating- 4.3/5


1.)Shane nigam , Shruty menon , Vinay fort - they acted brilliantly with realistic no lag dialogue delivery. i thought Shane nigam would not be able to handle this role but he handled it maturely as a 23 year old boy in this film. (we got a good actor). Vinay fort as usual he does his role nicely and this time as police officer was marvelous. sometimes his strict dialogues and mannerisms also frightened me in theater. Shruty menon was apt for this movie and her acting was also good.

2.)direction,script- Shanavas is one of the new good director who entered film industry this year with this brilliant movie. i was amazed by his making style and he never showed any lags as debut directors does. well done!!. realistic direction as well as script was totally good for this movie. this is not first time in our industry and many films have done this genre (tragedy love story) and most resemblance is from annayum rasoolam. maybe this film will not be able to stand with annayum rasoolam as that film is always in top position in term of everything. i think Shanavas has seen that movie many times to make this one as this movie shows lots of similarities. if this movie dint come with "based on true incident" tag then every one would have blamed it for copying it. well i am not saying as a complaint and i was just expressing my views. Kismat is a good film and its only because of director's effort this movie became a delightful watch.

3.) songs,bgscore cinematography,edits - music director using "kisa paathiyil" as a background score was a totally a good idea. and songs were top and matching this film. cinematography which we usually see in many realistic films was good. edits was also good.

4.) length of this film- this is less than 2 hrs movie and it will not bore you. you may even feel that this movie ended fast. and because of this there is no lags in this film.


1.)if they could have added a little varieties to this flick maybe it could have got international recognition. its not a big negative point but just a suggestion. 2.) its a romantic story but i felt romance was pretty less in this flick. 3.) even though its a tragedy it may not wet your eyes like usual tragedy movies does.

is it a must watch? if you are a fan of realistic romantic tragedy movies then yes or if you are masala movies fan then it will be a little confusing decision i guess. since this movie is based on true incident it has to be watched by everyone to know about this incident.

overall- a real life tragedy romantic flick which i would like to recommend to everyone. may not be everyone's cup of tea but try to watch this flick and that's all i can say. (but don't go with high expectations)

note- special thanks to LJ films for distributing this small budget films even in overseas as well.

My rating 4.3/5
