'Kismath' has already become one of the best movies of 2016 in Malayalam. It increased the number of theatres by double within one week of release. And everyone is applauding the director of the movie, Shanavas K Bavakutty, for a film that is so connected to the reality of Kerala society. In a recent interview, Shanavas opens up about the hardship behind bringing the movie to the theatres. He said that 'Kismath' became a reality because of Rajeev Ravi and Lal Jose. He added that after hearing the story Rajeev Ravi agreed to produce the film but the real trouble was to find a distributor. Due to no big names in the cast, they weren't able to find a distributor for almost an year. Later, Rajeev only asked Lal Jose to watch the movie. Shanavas says that though Lal Jose said that the distribution calendar for his LJ Films was full for this year, he agreed to release the movie, as early as possible, after watching it. 'Kismath' is produced under Phase One creations banner and distributed by LJ Films.
