MOVIE REVIEW: Viswasam Also, popular opinion is that the film will lure in people to the theatres because of positive word of mouth.

Packed evening & night shows in Bangalore city Expecting good week 1 overall as WOM is very good Raghu Nandan Reddy (@Ragsblr) January 10, 2019 India Today reviewer Janani K rated the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote, "It is probably the first time that a leading actor like Ajith and director Siruthai Siva have collaborated for four consecutive films. By now, they have worked together for nearly 6 years, which is enough to analyse one's strength and weakness in their craft. Even after working together for half a decade, Ajith and Siva don't seem to have understood each other's work style or the audience's pulse." Viswasam is an emotional family entertainer starring Ajith, Nayanthara, Baby Anikha and Jagapati Babu in the lead roles. Produced by Sathya Jyothi Films, the movie is said to have released in over 1000 screens across the globe.
