Kismat, starring Naresh Agastya, Abhinav Gomatam, and Viswadev Rachakonda, was released in theaters today. Read our review to find out what we think about the film.


Karthik (Naresh Agastya), Abhi (Abhinav Gomatam), and Kiran (Viswadev Rachakonda), three unemployed engineers from Manchiryal, relocated to Hyderabad in search of employment. Their paths cross with Soori (Temper Vamsi), who is looking for missing money from his boss Janardhan (Ajay Gosh), an aspiring MLA. The trio unintentionally ends up with the money, which raises a series of questions: Where is it? What role does Vivek (Srinivas Avasarala) play in this financial twist? What will happen next? The movie contains the answers.

Plus Points:

Naresh Agastya, Abhinav Gomatam, and Viswadev Rachakonda deliver excellent performances.

Abhinav Gomatam stands out with his impeccable comedic timing and witty one-liners. Ajay Ghosh and Temper Vamsi deliver memorable performances.

Minus points:

The challenge is not the story itself, but how it is presented. Kismat lacks the crisp storytelling that is commonly associated with crime comedies, and a more engaging screenplay could have significantly improved the film.

The abundance of characters proves to be a disadvantage, and some scenes lack cohesion. For example, the improbable scenario of an HR representative falling in love with an interview candidate over coffee and then joining him in a crime undermines the film’s credibility. Furthermore, Riya Suman’s screen time is unfortunately limited.

The slow pace of the first half continues into the second, adding unnecessary drama for comedic and suspenseful effects. Despite its short runtime, the film becomes tedious.

Srinivas Avasarala’s role, like Riya Suman’s, adds little to the overall story.

Technical aspects:

The writer and director squandered an opportunity to create a compelling screenplay that could have turned Kismat into an entertaining cinematic experience.

Mark K Robin’s music and cinematography, while making subtle contributions, fall short of making a lasting impression. Editing could have been more refined, and while production values meet expectations, there is still room for improvement.


Overall, Kismat is a routine crime drama with a mediocre screenplay, despite the lead cast’s commendable performances. The persistent sluggishness may put the audience’s patience to the test. This week is a better time to consider alternative entertainment options.
