Kaashmora has opened to positive reviews. The Tamil movie is appreciated for Karthi's brilliant performance and the eye-pleasing visuals backed by a good story.
Karthi's Kaashmora, also spelled Kashmora, is a multi-genre film directed by Gokul. The SR Prabhu-produced movie has Nayanthara and Sri Divya playing the female leads. Vivek, Sharath Lohitashwa, Madhusudhan Rao and many others are also in the cast.
Om Prakash is the cinematographer, while VJ Sabu Joseph has handled the editing department. Santhosh Narayanan is the music director of Kaashmora. He has churned out a few hit tracks like 'Thakida Thakida,' 'Jagadhamma' and 'Oyaa Oyaa.'
Karthi plays a dual role in the movie of a self-obsessed warlord named Raj Nayak and a black magician Kaashmora. Nayanthara has enacted the role of princess Nayanthara and Sri Divya will be seen as a PhD student, who is doing a research on sorcery.
Kaashmora promises to entertain viewers with its fantasy and horror elements. The movie travels 500 years back and gets connected to the present-day happenings. Interestingly, the flick does not have romance despite two female leads. The film is set to give a new experience to the Tamil cine goers with its 30-minute period portion. A particular sequence has been shot using 360-degree omnidirectional camera rig and this is the first Indian movie to use this technology.
Going by the trailer and other promotional materials, people may compare this movie with Baahubali – The Conclusion. But the makers of Karthi's film have clarified that there is no match between two films as Kaashmora is made with much-lesser budget than SS Rajamouli's flick. The latest flick promises to be a highly-entertaining film.
Kaashmora (Karthi) with his father (Vivekh) cheats people in the name of black magic and accidentally they become popular, drawing the attention of a politician (Sharath Lohitashwa). Now, they get a bigger opportunity to loot the money of the corrupt politician and in the process they land in a haunted house. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
The movie has turned out to be a good entertainer. Karthi and Nayanthara's acting get full marks. The technical departments too contribute a lot to the success of the film. Below, we bring you the viewers' response to the movie, which has been simultaneously released in Tamil and Telugu with the same name:
Muhammed Arif: #kashmora mixed of Mass movie and Jackson Durai.. but well executed!!!
#kashmora paisa vasool guarantee!!! Kids will surely enjoy!!! Perfect treat for Diwali!!! Go with your family!!!
#kashmora very good first half and average second half!!! Liked comedy portions!!!Second half and CG works could have been better!!!
#kashmora over all one time watchable.. clean family entertainer!!! Watch it for comedy tracks especially for vivek sir performance!!!
#kashmora finished!!! Second half very average..expected lot for the flash back portion & climax but ends with usual commercial horror flick
What Mass movie missed #kashmora fall in the correct place with good comedy and neat screenplay..expect nayan entry post interval.
#kashmora biggest plus is the comedy tracks are moving with logics!!! Clean and neat screenplay!!! Kudos to dir gokul!!!
Sidhu: #Kaashmora: Nevertheless, the horror-comedy genre which is a crowd favorite now is a given, and that should do the job. Let's wait and see.
#Kaashmora: Karthi is a performer and that's proven here, along with Vivek and Nayan - the main cast is the plus point of film.
#Kaashmora: Gokul's ideas are appreciable, but he lacks conviction to hold attention. Few laughs and grand visuals add up - some respite.
#Kaashmora: Borderline enjoyable package which is a mix of horror, comedy, fantasy and period elements. Liked it in parts.
#Kaashmora Interval: On the slower side, but the occasional jokes are keeping it alive. Story picks up pace from the pre-interval scene.
Teejay S: #Kaashmora review (3.5/5) - On overall a great movie for Diwali, that entertains throughout.
#Kaashmora review (3.5/5) kudos to this man @prabhu_sr for making such a good film. Takes guts after #Bahubali
#Kaashmora review (3.5/5) @Music_Santhosh although the music was a speedbreaker. His BGM was a killer!
#Kaashmora review (3.5/5) @Actor_Vivek along with @Karthi_Offl is what kept us so entertained. He is back in style!
#Kaashmora review (3.5/5) #SriDivya does the city girl role well. Though it seemed a bit forced into the script.
#Kaashmora review (3.5/5) Although #Nayanthara was there briefly. The impact she made was huge!! Looked majestic!
#Kaashmora review (3.5/5) @Karthi_Offl as #Rajanayak is menacing & completely different acting style frm Kaashmora!
#Kaashmora review (3.5/5) @Karthi_Offl lives the role as the Kaashmora with his gimmicks &brings laughter throughout
Thamarai Kannan: #Kaashmora - comedy works, Horror, mythology,war sequences fail terribly in kaashmora. #Nayanthara a terrible casting choice
Sasi: #kashmora #Kashmora comedy worked out really well. Karthi is back with his core strength.. Finally going to be well deserved hit for karthi
Vasanthan: Those less known yet terrific actors of #iDhaBa make an appearance and bring the roof down here too. #Kaashmora
#Karthi's hardwork in all roles s evident and if at all anythin the movie does work in parts jus because of him #Kaashmora
New film in the horror comedy season of tamil cinema albeit a magnanimous one, works in moments, the historical portions & Nayan #Kashmora
Amar Chithra Katha pola oru kathai aana konjam illa heavy aavae golti hangover, cud hav given somethin diff, sry boss #Kaashmora
Loved d pre intrvl 15 min seg alone,wish the remainin portion was as good as dat,bit underwhelmin,waitin 4 #Rajnayak #Halftime #Kaashmora
ChristopherKanagaraj: #kashmora | 1st hlf - Except few comedy portion & interval block, nothing is interesting. No Nayan yet, Sridivya for 3 scenes.Vivek gud.Avg!
#kashmora | 2nd hlf - Lengthy, not so interesting screenplay. Karthi & Nayan performace gud. Bgm gud. CGI work okay.A different attempt!!!
VJ Abishek: You might find it lengthy! But best film made in this genre' till date! Every little doubt falls in place n all effort turn worthy #Kashmora
There is still logic in d imaginary world @DirectorGokul has created 4 #Kashmora Solid writing backed by super performances! Pace issues :(
One weird thing abt #Kashmora @Music_Santhosh and the sound designer has given some blank places.
There might be pace issues, bt lovn d way @DirectorGokul has workd on setting d premise of d story by committing it in d dialogs #Kashmora
Entire film is carried by @Karthi_Offl Be it d body language or d enhancements during dubbing, he is outperformed himself! @prabhu_sr rocks
Production value is bludy inspiring! Writing cud've been titer bt comdy 2wards d middle works big time! 1st half settles on a high #Kashmora
Mithunrain: #kashmora complete comedy in first half and the period segment coming in the second half. waiting for grand opening #Diwali
#Kashmora is the david with 50cr budget seems to be ready to challenge the giat goaliath #bahubali with its war sequence n period segment.
Sattish Viswanath: #Kaashmora interval boring here and there, decent humour and few logic missing. CG WORK DONE WELL
Aravind Ramesh: #Kaashmora s a new take on black magic and has wonderful performances and sooper set designs and production value.. Wholesome Entertainer :)
