Kismath means destiny, and the movie Kismath is a take by director Shanavas K Bavakutty on the destiny of a Muslim boy and a Dalit girl who fell in love. The movie is a cinematic version of many events that took place in Malappuram district in Kerala.


A 23-year-old Muslim boy Irfan and his love life Anitha, a 28-year-old Dalit girl, seek the help of police to unite and live happily. Kismath is real and intense to the core and is not a normal love story. It paints the true picture of a police station and also is a silent call for the society to introspect itself.


The director has done a good job in giving the movie the realist touch it required. He has successfully incorporated humour and kept the raw nature of the movie intact. Such serious work from a debutant director needs real appreciation and it was the reason quoted by director Lal Jose for him to take up the challenging task of releasing this low budget movie that did not have a celebrated star cast.


Shane Nigam delivers a very natural performance and one could say that he has lived the character to perfection. Shruty Menon handles her role as the lead lady in a decent way and actor Alancier once again proves that he is a highly talented actor. The show stealer is Vinay Forrt who gives a mind blowing performance as the Sub-Inspector of Police.


The duration of the movie is 103 minutes only and thus it will breeze through, leaving an impact in the audience's heart.The credit goes to the editors B Ajith Kumar and Jithin Manohar. It is unfair to demand top quality cinematic experience from a low budget movie like this, but the cinematographer has handled the camera smoothly and has not compromised on the quality of frames. 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.


Verdict: Kismath is a raw, non-commercial movie that leaves an impact
