Tamanchey Hindi Movie Review

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Meena Iyer Site:Times Of India (TOI)

In Tamanchey, instead of a self-righteous boy serenading a vestal virgin, you have a bad boy romancing a bad girl. But does this alone qualify as a coming-of-age pulp fiction romantic thriller? By the end of the film, your answer is that only the intention should be applauded, not necessarily the execution.One star in the rating is reserved solely for the livewire, Richa Chadha. Like in Fukrey, in Tamanchey too, she gets her bindaas, badass girl act pat.

This is director Navneet Behal’s debut film, but he shows little spark. There are quite a few shaky moments in the film, which could have been tackled better by Navneet in order for the film to look glossier. The dubbing seems to have gone off at quite a few places whereas the camera angles look and behave very amateurish at places, especially during the climax fight scenes. Navneet should have adopted fresh ideas in the film’s plot to make it more believable. All in all, TAMANCHEY is an average fare.

Check for seasoning : is Richa Chaddha, the girl who gave off such promise in ‘Oye Lucky’, and was so striking in ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ well and truly buried, only able to show us weak glimpses of what she can do?

Tamanchey is funny, fast paced and fierce but begins to fizzle out just when you’re starting to like it. Behal introduces both the story and the characters beautifully but in his quest of making Tamanchey the next big thing, he loses sight of what really matters.On paper, Tamanchey must have seemed like a great idea but it’s transition to celluloid, perhaps, needed a stronger, more experienced director. The end, along with a good twenty minutes that precede it, seem entirely forced.

Tamanchey falls way short of the mark. A stodgy and aimless noir drama, it is a rusty gun that fires noisy blanks without making any impact at all. The reason is obvious: the film’s makers are like a bunch of over-ambitious swimmers who’ve never been in a pool before but have ill-advisedly set out to cross the Strait of Gibraltar. The result is inevitable disaster: they do not get very far. Tamanchey makes terribly rough weather of a wafer-thin plot that plumbs the depths of outright inanity.In the end, Tamanchey is about as edifying as a mud wrestling bout with a drugged gorilla.

Tamanchey has a scene in which the lead pair starts making out during a bank dacoity. The ideas behind this sequence might be grand but how it looks on the screen is nothing more than a juvenile effort. Unfortunately, there are many such scenes in the film. Talking of pace, the editor has done a good job by keeping a fast tempo and it saves the film from falling apart in the climax, which is highly predictable.Overall, Tamanchey lacks novelty but can be watched once for its tongue in cheek dialogues.

The film has many loopholes, and some parts are hard to digest. But Tamanchey still qualifies for a one time watch. If you are expecting glamour of Bang Bang or class of Haider, then please plan something else for the week. But if you are a fan of crime capers, which are strange yet entertaining, then book the tickets for Tamanchey.

    Miss it, as it misses the target for the most! [1.5/5]

    A foul-mouthed girl minding her own business of leading a drug-racket in Delhi-NCR! An abductor with a heart ever ready to sing love-songs! And they bond over fascinating crime-stories during their break away from the cops. We don’t see an odd couple like them very often in Bollywood, especially with the character Richa Chaddha plays in the film but that’s that and no meat to seize your teeth in, in its paper-thin plot.

    Visually directed by Navneet Behal [Yeah, that’s how he chooses to put his name in the credits; probably because of the row over creative differences with the other Creative Director Suryaveer Singh Bhullar], TAMANCHEY has all the ingredients of a masala-entertainer but miserably wrong in their proposed measures. Result? A tasteless comedy, cold as corpse drama, rough & bumpy action sequences and absolutely watery performances!

    Munna with an eastern UP dialect [Nikhil Dwivedi] meets Babu [Richa Chaddha] from Delhi. The guy is in the business of kidnapping capitalists and the girl is an independent drug-dealer from the ‘Capitol’. On the run, they fall in love and that is the least thing Rana- a Haryanvi don who owns the girl [Played by Debutante Damandeep Sidhu] would approve. What follows next is hardly inventive or original unless you meet the climax. Hear this out because I know many would give this film a miss. The murderous couple in love is surrounded by cops in an abandoned building and in cloudy moments of despair, they decide to play ‘husbands-wives’ game everyone must have in their childhood. Trying hard to make you cry, to make you feel for the characters but it’s too late. The bullets have gone backfire and there is just a plain smoke left for you to succumb in suffocation and depression.

    Leave the characterization alone as that’s the only part I think the makers had worked on, and everything else is so flat as burst tyres. The screenplay barely induces any spark of excitement in you. You are left with some funny dialogues, to be précised one or two sequences to rely your urge of watching something substantial and Richa Chaddha who’s directed more to show off her physical curves and cleavages than her confident in the role. She’s been perfectly cast as a blunt, sharp and gutsy girl who can land herself comfortably in any panicky situation. Though this would not be considered amongst her best of works, she’s the only flicker of relief. Nikhil Dwivedi doesn’t hesitate to put his best efforts but sadly that never turns into a visible result. Damandeep Sidhu is an identified name in theater-world in Delhi and no doubt this role has lots in terms of the length and the time spent on screen but I wish he could use more flares of his acting skills to his one-dimensional villainous act.

    Overall, TAMANCHEY as it sounds is a gunshot loaded full of smoke and big bang but misses its target by large margin. And who would want that? Especially when we have the all flashy and stylized firearms in muscular hands of Greek God ruling over box-office [read: BANG BANG] and the brother-turns rival-to another with Kalashnikov shooting off fire of hatred and revenge to win critical acclaim from allover [read: HAIDER] still running in theatres. Don’t make this an option! [1.5/5]
