Here are the reviews of "Ithihasa" by various reviewers
"The director Binu S wins over audience heart with an 'unexpected' story covered with golden dust of some fresh comedies and an untold fantasy. The screenplay by Aneesh Lee Ashok and dialogues by Anil Narayanan shows us the brilliance in scripting a film conveying an untold story. Its difficult to believe that the lead roles of Alvy and Vikku done by Shine Tom Chacko and Balu Vargheese is debutant's work as they robbed the minds of audience with their stunning performance. Janaki by Anusree Nair once again proved that she is much talented actress whose skill still remains to explore more Janaki by Anusree Nair once again proved that she is much talented actress whose skill still remains to explore more." – Muyals.com
"The script of the film had managed to fill in all elements like comedy and songs to entertain the audience. Both the script writer and the director have managed to bring out a film that can be watched without getting bored. The placement of the character played by Balu Varghese has been perfect as he lifts the film with his dialogues and wits. This will be Shine Tom Chacko's best performance after 'Annayum Rasoolum'. He had managed to perform in action sequences and the scenes where he becomes a female. The most important aspect of the film would be Anushree. He had excelled in each aspect of her role including stunts and dialogues."- Redcarpetonline
"Since the director is debutant, you may feel that some elements are missing. But he was able to make it so appealing because of how it was narrated. Overall director Binu has did a good job. The action scenes were also notable. Technical wise, camera work by cinematographer Sinoj P Ayyappan was great. As a debutant, he did an excellent work. Music by Deepak Dev was also good." – Ente City.com
