Kismat is an official remake of Malayalam thriller Neram, and to be honest, Kismat looks much better and explained film.
The story is very simple which talks about Vijay (Vijay Raghavendra) who has a loan to pay at a given time-frame. Another track includes of Anu (Sangeetha Bhat) who is in love with Vijay and they both are planning to elope to live happily ever after.
When the couple thinks, all their problems have an end, suddenly there are other plans by their destiny waiting for the couple in the store!
There are amazingly commendable performances from every actor in the film. Be it Vijay Raghavendra and Sangeetha Bhat. Or Chikkanna in his new avatar. Or Naveen Krishna, once again in his master act. And you have to trust me over this.
The film does drop down it’s pace at few points and goes over explanatory in the process. But the wonderful direction by Vijay Raghavendra manages to make it up. The Production Values, Camera Work and Music goes very good with the film.
But on the whole, do watch Kismat as it gives you an edge-of-the-seat thrill ride which entertains you to the core!
