Kaanchi  Hindi Movie Reviews

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama

KAANCHI starts off very well, with Ghai capturing certain moments that stay with you. The first hour has several engaging and interesting episodes, while the twist in the tale that leaves Kaanchi shattered is the highpoint of the movie… one expects the post-interval portions to only go forward from this point. Sadly, KAANCHI hits a rough patch in the second hour. On the whole, KAANCHI could’ve been a riveting fare, but doesn’t rise beyond the ordinary in the final tally.

Subhash Ghai has penned a tried and tested story of a wronged girl out to seek revenge against the rich and mighty. His screenplay, like the story, may not offer much novelty but he scores with his characterisations. On the whole, Kaanchi is an entertaining fare but its terribly dull start is a dampener because a major pick-up is ruled out for three reasons – absence of star faces in the romantic lead, absence of any novelty in the script, and absence of superhit songs in a film introducing a new girl. It will, therefore, entail heavy losses.

From effortlessly epic to unintentionally campy, Ghai’s school of entertainment has taken quite a beating. I walk out hastily from the screening, having witnessed a particularly ridiculous final combat, hoping to erase Kaanchi’s absurd imagery and phoney politics with the thumping nostalgia of dhina dhin dha. Now that loyalty, that’s unbreakable, Mr Ghai.

Patriotic intentions apart, a lame love story with limp kisses follow. Before Kaanchi and Binda embark on their journey of bliss, the antagonist Sanjeev Kakda (TV hottie, Rishab Sinha), who desperately needs a haircut and acting lessons, comes into the picture. Coming back to the plot, Kakda is infatuated with Kaanchi and when she resists, he recoils. From here the film descends into a mishmash In what is the most childish plot ever. And by the time she’s done with her Mother India act, you’re too tired to seek reason.

Subhash Ghai seeks to connect into the rising tide of anger among today’s youth with narrative devices that have seen better days. Kaanchi is essentially the doomed love story of a simple girl from an Uttarakhand village of retired soldiers. It works only till a point. The revenge motive that rides on the heroine’s rage fails to acquire any kind of urgency. The bid to link her personal mission to a people’s movement on the streets of Mumbai is also rather laboured. Kaanchi is strictly for old time’s sake.

A fiery young girl from the hills takes up cudgels on behalf of her people and fights off the bad guys. This is the burden of Subhash Ghai’s new film, and he tells it in the same manner that made his films so watchable in the ’80s, and so out-dated in 2014. This may have had power 40 years back. Now it is just tired, and jaded.

The plot is so naïve that most of the audience was laughing at Kaanchi`s antics rather than supporting her in her movement. All in all, `Kaanchi` does not work on any front. Watch the movie at your own risk. But spare a thought for Ghai – it breaks your heart to see a showman fail to produce a good show.

Kaanchi is a film that may entertain you if you are a fan of Subhash Ghai films. The script is not strong enough to make this film a riveting one. There are no stellar performances to look forward to. Also the music or the background score do not really help to pick up the film at any point. The film has typical Ghai film elements with a small town feel and yet the extravagance of the elite. The film could also serve as an inspiration to girls who want to bring a change in society but only in a cinematic manner. Watch it if you have ample of free time!

    Average mash-up of uninspiring Events! The old Ghai is missed! [2/5]

    It is said that once Charlie Chaplin entered a Chaplin look-alike contest and came second in impersonating himself, now that’s an excellent example of compliment for the artist. But if the showman Subhash Ghai wants to make a Subhash Ghai film and ends up making it look like some hardcore fanmade job, it doesn’t leave much scope for any admiration. His latest KAANCHI is a strictly average mash-up of uninspiring events lifted and borrowed mostly from his own works in the past.

    KAANCHI tells us about a simple, straightforward and bold girl from some remote village in Uttarakhand [Ghai’s new discovery Mishty], who doesn’t think twice before standing up against the injustice. When a corrupt politician [Mithun Chakraborty] and a rich businessman [Rishi Kapoor in a Malya inspired character], the brothers-cum-partners in crime join hands to grab an illegal land-deal, Kaanchi’s love-interest Binda [PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA fame Kartik Tiwari] takes the torch to bring them out in the light. Meanwhile, the infatuated son and worthy successor of the evil forces has lusty intentions towards Kaanchi. The fate has worst for her in its kitty but it’s the undying determination that makes her constantly move forward in this fight against injustice.

    With a strong likeness of TAAL and PARDES in visual representation and the happening of the events in the film, there is hardly any scene that is not seen before on screen. It is clearly evident that Ghai still lives and breathes in the same world he was in 10-15 years back. No signs of evolution registered! The sights of villagers singing and dancing in chorus on a big community ground having tricolors in their hands are so so done to death. There is no escape for you from watching our leading lady seducing the villain to acquire some important information kept in a micro SD card and if that doesn’t prove to be the cause of death of your interest in the film, you will have to witness another baddie kidnapping family members of the other side. Am I in 2014 or transported in 70’s Bollywood??

    On the performances, the new find Mishti looks fresh and a stunning treat for camera lenses and viewer’s eyes. About acting, all I can say is she’s confident but a long way to gain other’s in her. Kartik impresses in his comparatively shorter role. Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Da do it with ease, since that come with the experience they have but their roles will not be much of an unforgettable experience. If anyone who really gets into the skin of the character, it is Chandan Roy Sanyal as a corrupt cop-turned-good helping soul to Kaanchi. He brings life to every frame he’s in.

    Talking about a Subhash Ghai Film and not mentioning its music? Now, that’s another shame. Ridiculous lyrics [one goes like, “Tu mushtanda tu sexy
    Tu chalti phirti taxi”], lackluster tunes and a totally average album!! I wish you could watch the weirdest medley of the year titled as ‘Kambal ke neeche’ where Mahima Chaudhary makes a special appearance! It’s hard to sit through such idiocy in times where we intent to talk about changing times and still go back to old formulas for safe way of entertainment.

    To put this in short, KAANCHI is a 2 hour 30 min long missing report where we see all our hopes to find glimpse of the Subhash Ghai style of filmmaking die sooner or later! Disappointing!! [2/5]
