Kanchana 2 Movie Review
As we all know Kanchana 2 is the third installment of the much liked Muni series and hence the plot is pretty predictable. What is really important here is how the film is narrated. Raghava Lawrence works as a camera man in a TV channel with an interesting bunch of colleagues played by Taapsee, Mayilsamy, Manobala and ‘Jangiri’ Madhumitha. As they go about their business, one day they are forced to enter a haunted house(unintentionally) as a part of their work schedule and return after witnessing a horror unfold in front of their eyes. Needless to say, after a few days they discover that both Raghava Lawrence and Taapsee are possessed by different spirits seeking vengeance. Who are those ghosts and what do they want forms the crux of the story.
Lead actors have shone in the movie with Raghava Lawrence literally stealing the show all the way. Kovai Sarala, as usual is at her comical best and Taapsee too has done a fair job. Nithya Menon has played a special character and has delivered, so much so that one might think about her character while exiting the cinema hall. She surely creates an impact even though her character is short lived. Comedy plays an important part in the film and hence all the comedians have been given enough screen space which has been utilized well.
One can say, amidst all that rib-tickling comedies and heart-stopping horror moments, Kanchana 2 is also a technically sound movie(better than its prequels), for the visual effects are convincing. Raghava Lawrence, has come a long way as a director and sure knows how to fabricate an interesting screenplay. However, the second half is tiring in parts and the flashback sequences are over-dramatized. Climax looks a tad blunt and incomplete. Music by Leon James, C. Sathya, S. Thaman and Ashwamithra has delivered the goods as the background score helps to up the fear factor, though it gets too loud at times. Cinematography by Rajavel Olhiveeran is precise and has done justice to the horror genre. Editing is crisp especially in the first half but given the length of the movie, one might feel a few more portions could’ve faced the virtual scissors.
Kanchana 2 is definitely an entertaining movie but could’ve easily been much better with a better second half. Perhaps Lawrence should let go of his flashback formula in ‘Muni 4’.
