Much-hyped Mammootty starrer "Kasaba" was released as an Eid treat in Kerala and Tamil Nadu on Thursday, July 7. The action thriller, which is the second release of the megastar in 2016, has been released in 101screens in Kerala at a time when three other Malayalam films have also hit the theatres.
With "Kasaba," which is the debut directorial venture of Nithin Renji Panicker, the megastar, who plays the role of Circle Inspector Rajan Zachariah, dons the police uniform again after a gap of five years. The film is expected to make tremendous opening day collection at the Kerala box office owing to the huge fan following of the star apart from the film's pre-release hype.
Unlike other cop movies that the Kerala audience is familiar with, "Kasaba" is expected to be different as the character played by Mammootty has both serious and comic elements that is evident from the official teaser of the flick. The style and attitude of the megastar looks different and has already raised the expectations of the audience from the movie.
"Kasaba" stars Neha Saxena, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Jagadish, Sampath Raj, Maqbool Salmaan, Shaheen Siddique and Siddique in significant roles. The fans of Mammootty have been celebrating the movie even before its release and have been posting their expectations from the film on various social media platforms. According to several posts on social media, the opening show of the mass entertainer is witnessing housefull status in theatres across the state.
Check out what audience have to say about Mammootty's "Kasaba":
Kasaba - an energetic investigative entertainer .. Mammookka steals the show as C I Rajan Zachariah .. It was a real pleasure watching him on screen in a different cop avatar after long time.. Heavy background score too #Rahulraj..congrats to RNithin Renji Panicker and team kasaba..
#Kasaba. Nithin Renji Panicker has broke all the existing yesteryear police characters in mollywood. #RajanSacharia is different version than from others, he will definitely steal our hearts with a giggling walk!!! Rahul Raj's electrifying bgm at its peak.Rest of the cast (including two beautiful heroines, Neha Saxena &Varu Sarathkumar ) are neatly managed their screen space with MammoottyGo for it!!!!
Kasaba has got a thumbs down from my side. Poor story; usual predicable investigation tale. No twist No suspense; amazeball as hell. What impresses me most about Kasaba is Mamooka. He is just amazing in his role. A Wacky cop. Not an absolved police officer too. So it wont disappoint the fans.
#Kasaba ☺ The entertainer of the season in all means. Mammookka show all the way. CI രാജൻ സകരിയ ..ഇതു വേറെ ലെവൽ A complete entertainer to be watched with family & friends
1st half is good with some new genrtn and punch dialogues . Bgm is good mammoty in a new engaging role #Kasaba. One time watchble. lack of gud stry Not suitable 4 family audiences becos of its dialogs

Kasaba is a movie that aims at audience of mass movies and Mammoka fans.
For them Kasaba will be a satisfying movie but for me Kasaba is an average flick.
Screen space of Mammokka and Performance of Siddiqikka was terrifc. ♥
BGM of Rahul Raj was superb..
Nithin Ranjipaniker shows glimpses of his father is few scenes.
Double meaning dialogues sometimes was very much over the par and that dialogues may sometimes make Kasaba avoidable for familes in coming days.
All together Kasaba is a tailor made movie for fans. Watch it if you Loves Mammokka and his mass appeal.
KASABA- mass filled first half and an average second half...mass scenes were superb but climax is utter disappointment..mamooty stealed the show...movie for fans..but climax..:(
Kasaba the Ultimate Entertainer !!! Mass Marana Mass Kola Mass ..!! With the spectacular dialogue delivery and Terra Mass walkkk Mammookka won all the hearts of the audience !! Worst part is I lost my voice screaming. Mammookka ki Jayyy. Sure blockbuster Ellam und makkale.. polichadukkiiii
Interesting First Half Mass Masala Entertainer MegaStar. 2nd Half Fight Sequence . 2nd Half & Climax Not Upto the Mark Overall Average Mass Masala Entertainer Watch It For MegaStar's Superb Performance 2.5/5
