Kaashmora is a decent one time watch for its entertaining comedy but its second half and lengthy duration irritates.
28 October 2016 | by shobanchittuproluSee all my reviews

Kaashmora (2016): Karthi entered into Tollywood with his fantasy movie Aayirathil Oruvan and developed a good fan following here.His latest movie Kaashmora is a fantasy horror with periodical touch.This year,Karthi already scored a big hit by Oopiri and aiming for another one.Since its first look Kaashmora has generated good buzz and its trailer looked promising.So how is this Kaashmora?

Plot: Kashmora(Karthi) is a small time crook who pretends to possess some special powers of taking to the ghosts. He cheats a huge politician and runs away with his money.The twist in the tale arises when he gets stuck in a huge forbidden bungalow which has a past of over seven centuries and also some real ghosts and the one named Raj Nayak (Karthi).How does Kashmora gets stuck there ? What is his connection with the bungalow and ghosts ? and where do Ratna Mahadevi(Nayanthara) and Yamini (Sri Divya) feature in this entire set up? That forms the rest of the story.

Plus Points:

1)First half: First half of Kaashmora is so entertaining with a lot of hilarious moments.Karthi and his family's con scenes are so funny.Karthi and Vivek are brilliant with their comic timing.Pre Interval scene is the most hilarious part of the movie.

2)Performances: Karthi is the major highlight of Kaashmora.He is brilliant in both roles he played.He provided great humor as Kaashmora and as Raj Naik he excelled.His look is well made and we cant even believe that he is Karthi.Vivek as Karthi's father gave good laughs.Nayanthara looked stunning.Sri Divya is bad in her role.

3)BGM: Santhosh Narayan gave good BGM for this movie.It syncs with the mood most of the time.

Minus Points:

1)Plot: Plot is ages old where a vengeful spirit seeks revenge.The plot is mostly similar to Arundathi.

2)Second half: After such an entertaining first half,second half is huge let down.It is so dragging with predictable scenes.Flashback episode has good sets and performances but pace is so slow.Climax is silly.

3)Duration: 2hr32 min duration is entirely unnecessary for this movie.Several scenes can be chopped off.

So,Kaashmora is a decent one time watch for its entertaining comedy but its second half and lengthy duration irritates.

My rating 6/10
