Shane Nigam and Shruthy Menon's Malayalam movie "Kismath" was released in 41 screens in Kerala by Lal Jose's LJ Films Pvt. Ltd on Friday, July 29. The movie has locked horns with megastar Mammootty's romantic entertainer "White" at the Kerala box office.

Despite being a small-budget movie with newcomers in lead roles, Shanavas K Bavakutty's debut directorial venture "Kismath" has become one of the most awaited movies of the year. The trailer and the songs of the romantic entertainer, which is based on a real life incident that happened at Ponnani in Malappuram in 2011, have already impressed the audience. Many celebrities have also been promoting the movie.

Vishnu Udayan

Kismath is a beautiful tale with a very lovely tale end. Technically, it looked near to perfect with very cute mirror-frames and sound designing. Shane Nigam is such a promising youngster to our industry. He can deliver more astonishing performances within his limits. Sruthy Menon's career best and Vinay Forrt's best after Premam. I think after Vimal sir, this character is going to fetch a lot for Vinay.

While I give full credits to the director for sticking to realistic film making, the dramatic dialogues towards the end could have trimmed. But never mind, the story is deep enough! Sushin Shyam's background score is a cherry on top.

Salute to Rajeev Ravi and LJ Films Pvt Ltd. for taking up such a strong project. Shanavas K Bavakutty, we will look forward to you for more strong films like this. Do not miss it in theaters.

kismath is a good movie intensely performed by our new boy shane nigam and arrogantly enacted by dear vinay fort,picturised simply and perfectly by suresh rajan,musically lifted by sushin shyam ...good debut mr.shanawas. if you can please cut down that tail end song ,which distracts the film well and fine

Kismath a movie inspired from true events happened in ponnani has shown justice in every aspect. It is the story of a Irfan a Muslim boy who is in love with Anitha a dalit girl who is elder than him by 5 years. Its more than enough to know what the story will be about and as it is based on true events nothing filmy is gonna happen in it. Irfan is a engineer who is immature and easygoing but in the matter of love he is very serious and when he understands caste and society wont allow their marriage he takes things into his hands and goes to police station with his love seeking help for them to live together. Movie then shows how the society, law and caste tries to defend this.
Special mention to cast director, not many roles but just perfect and everyone were spot on. Vinayfort needs a special mention. Shine Nigam and Shruty Menon doid all justice to their roles.

The movie was so realistic that you wont see any actors but only the characters throughout the movie. Director Shanavas with Rajeev Ravi production has done all justice to the movie. No gimmicks, stunts, mass dialogues movie is very simple and real. So all those who like realism in movies go for it. Also who are in love this is a must watch :)

My Rating:4/5

Kismath - tries to be another 'Annayum Rasoolum', and have succeeded to some extend. But there is nothing new brewing here. Shane Nigam has given a powerful performance & Vinay fort is also worth mentioning.Kismath ends as yet another realistic popcorn bite which we are tired trying of.
