Critic Reviews Kismath

  • Times Of India | Review By -Deepa Soman Rating-6/10
Kismath is decently engaging and thought-provoking. It also urges you to ponder over what matters most to the families in our society. Right at the beginning of the film, the movie establishes how deeply the caste sentiments run even within our law enforcement systems. On the flip side, the movie is quite sloth-paced, especially the first half. While the songs are extremely melodious, their insertion into the dragging narrative only stretches it further.

  • Manorama | Review By -Arathi Kannan Rating-6/10
A simple story told with no props and without marketable elements, Kismath makes for an honest film; one that doesn't just pass a sideways glance at the unforgiving social constructs, but zooms them for us to take a good look. The conflicts laden on lovers' turf, barrenness of the hearts that are suffused with theories of caste and the helplessness of the non-affluent sneer at us from the frames of the film, almost hinting that if we peer a tad too much, we might see our own reflections in them.

  • Now Running | Review By -Veeyen Rating-6/10
Flawlessly acted, remarkably scripted and skilfully executed, 'Kismat' is a striking cinematic accomplishment that needs to be seen and appreciated. It brandishes the emotional tumult that lies within, with immense ferocity and passion, and emerges exultantly as one of the best films that have made it to the screens this year.

  • Filmi Beat | Review By -Akhila Menon Rating-6/10
Kismath might not be everyone's cup of tea. The film is for all those who love to watch realistic and meaningful movies.  A simple but impactful movie that would hunt your mind even after leaving the theatres. The director has made it a point to stay away from unwanted commercial elements and thus the realistic approach stays intact throughout the film. More importantly, he has tried to convey a message to the society, without going preachy.

  • Behindwoods | Review By -BW Review Rating-5/10
The duration of the movie is 103 minutes only and thus it will breeze through, leaving an impact in the audience's heart. The music and the background score blend in with the mood of the film. There are lots of areas that need to be improved, but the movie will be a great watch for film lovers. If such movies get promoted, Malayalam Film Industry will deliver great cinemas in the future. Kismath is a raw, non-commercial movie that leaves an impact.
