Director Puri Jagannadh's Telugu movie ISM, featuring Nandamuri Kalyan Ram and Aditi Arya in the lead roles, has received positive reviews from the audience.
Written by Puri Jagannadh, ISM is an action entertainer, which revolves around the story of a sincere journalist, who fights against corruption. The movie has a routine storyline, but Puri's narration makes it an interesting watch. The first half is entertaining and the second half also manages to impress the audience.
Nandamuri Kalyan Ram has worked a lot for his physical transformation and has given a brilliant performance, which is the main highlight of the movie. Aditi Arya got a good scope for performance and she has done justice to her role, which is another attraction of the movie. Their chemistry is good to watch on screen, say viewers
Master Shourya, son of Kalyan Ram, has made his debut as an actor and his portions are also the high points of ISM. Jagapati Babu, Posani Krishna Murali, Jaya Prakash Reddy, Tanikella Bharani, Easwari Rao, Ajay Ghosh and Vennela Kishore are also assets of the film, add viewers.
Besides acting in the film, Kalyan Ram has also produced ISM under his banner NTR Arts. The film stands out for its superb production values. Anup Rubens's soundtracks and background score, G Mukesh's picturisation at beautiful locales, choreography of stunts, and punchy dialogues are the attractions on other fronts.
We bring you some viewers' verdict that has been shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of ISM movie review by audience:
