Rating: 3.25/5
ISM is a very honest attempt from Kalyan Ram and Puri. The Nandamuri hero’s stunning performance, first half, and a gripping pre-climax are major assets. If you ignore the lackluster climax and some hurried up scenes here and there, ISM will surely impress those who love hardcore commercial entertainers with a good message.
Rating: 3.25/5
Kalyan Ram’s ultimate performance can be witnessed and this could be a one time watch this weekend. If you like the commercial set of movies, then this will excite you!
Rating: 3.0/5
A better screenplay would have created a huge impact on audience. Ignoring some scenes, ISM is an entertaining film from Puri Jagan and Kalyan Ram. To summarise, ISM is message oriented commercial film.
Rating: 2.75/5
ISM offers no sensational'ism'.Puri could have worked on the screenplay, climax to make it more interesting. Dialogues are good in parts and overall masses will like it.
Rating: 2.5/5
Puri-Ism!This is the first time that Telugu film industry touched upon Wiki-Leaks kind of journalism. All in all, despite patriotic scenes, noble cause of journalism, the movie doesn’t hold interest due to bad packaging. Kalyan Ram and court scene in the end are good part of the movie.
Rating: 2.5/5
‘Ism’ is a formulaic Puri mark movie with one court room episode executed at peak. Kalyan Ram’s hard work was visible through out fitting into a Puri’s monotonous hero template. Journalism is the best point to excite us and Puri used it.
Rating: 2.5/5
What the duck! Keep your expectations in check if you are planning to watch it. Ism has the potential but in the end it turns out as just another Puri brand masala film with stereotype characters.

Ism finds its groove in the later portions and raises relevant questions. A better narrative and the stalking done away with, it would have made for an engaging watch.
Rating: 2.5/5
The plot was good, but the execution was pretty lame. In short, everything is spoiled due to lack of planning. ISM which could have been a better product faces lots of weakness due to Cliches and Lazy writing by Puri Jagannath.
Rating: 2.0/5
Ism is a great idea which was let down by Puri Jagannadh himself without a proper execution. Try Ism if you have the patience to watch the interesting Pre-Climax Sequence which is the best part of the film.
