Kanchana 2 - Laughter saves the day

The entire first half of Kanchana 2 has the crowd at their vociferous best. The plot does toe a similar template to the earlier two films but the laughs are consistent. Yes the comedy is loud as well as crude at times. But it works and that is what matters in a film like this.(more)

Movie Review

Muni films are like the Fast & Furious franchise, initially dismissed as something appealing only to a particular group of people but starting to gain increased acceptance among the paying audiences and even critics.

Some laughs in a dated horror template

Kanchana-2, despite being promoted as a sequel, has nothing to do with Muni 2: Kanchana. It's another episode in Raghava�'s (Raghava Lawrence) life.(more)
