Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Renuka Vyavahare Site:TOI

For a satire, subtlety is what you miss. You can’t possibly harp on potty jokes, describe women’s breast sizes and crack jokes on rape to sound smart and socially responsible. Sadly, this social satire, which could have been an eye-opener on false cases and fraud witnesses, literally has more shit (pun intended) than substance.

On the whole, Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho is, by and large, an entertaining film which will be liked by the class audience but its box-office prospects are dull because its promotion has been extremely low-key and satiri­cal films, as it is, have a very limited market in India.

This could have been a sharp black comedy with a strong sense of place , mining its superb absurdist premise : at one point, you are actually gifted the real meaning of that hoary expression ‘gayi bhains paani mein’. That is laugh-out-loud funny. You wish the rest of it was the same.

Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho comes across as a strained attempt at replicating Jolly LLB-esque storytelling.Sanjay Mishra brings some comedic heft to the film’s handful of funny moments.Like many of its peers, Miss Tanakpur takes off with a great premise but fails to realise its full potential.

While the first half of the film sets up the mood and the tempo of the film, the second half starts lagging and dragging at many places. The film’s direction also starts going astray at places. On the whole, MISS TANAKPUR HAZIR HO can be skipped with any regret.

Vinod Kapri’s debut into Bollywood on the back of his ‘Miss Tanakpur’ buffalo is a bumpy ride. Heaps of squandered potential make one sigh at Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho. Added to that is the speed of the narrative. While the story is somewhat neatly paced till the interval, it is post the midpoint that it starts faltering.In all, Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho is an okay-ish one-time watch. It has as its core a real story, but in the process of dramatisation, the sting is left blunt. Watch it for a somewhat askew view of the bizarre-fest called Rural India.

For those looking for a break from the Bollywood staple of star-studded, buffed up, feel-good entertainers, this film might be two hours and a bit well spent. But be warned: its blend of the unabashedly scatological and the wildly absurd may not be for overly touchy palates. For all its obvious flaws, television journalist-turned-filmmaker Vinod Kapri’s debut is a meaningful and bruising satire on a pliable judicial system that cannot protect the weak and the meek. Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho is out to employ humour to make a point and it does not shy away from adopting means that border on the unabashedly unrefined, take it or lump it.

Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho not only goofs up the metaphors everywhere, it even mocks rape survivors and the trauma of innocent people being framed in false cases. Not a single thing in Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho makes it worth a watch. Skip this and save yourself from this eminently avoidable overdose of misogyny and torture.

The dialogues’ are clunky, the plot points are convenient and characters’ motivations, well, who are we kidding? The biggest disappointment in Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho is that unlike other mediocre Bollywood films, it held a lot of promise; it could have said so much and so easily about the kind of people we are slowly becoming, about us being buffoons living gratuitously serious lives. But then Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho is not the first film to have got lost in the haze between intent and execution.

    The Great Indian ‘Tamasha’! Silly, Impractical but Satirical! [2.5/5]

    A rape victim has been identified. The accused is a young man and a promising prospect for his family. The victim belongs to the most influential and dominating man in the community. The police are forced to register an FIR and act responsibly in the case. The victim has to go through all the extensive grilling sessions e.g. medical examination and physical appearance in the crowded premise [in exact sense] of the court. Sounds regular and routine newspaper headline? It was before a Television Journalist decides to bring it on big screen in form of a motion picture; only twist in the tale is the rape victim here doesn’t belong to the human race and is a ‘not so helpless’ buffalo. You will learn the ‘not so helpless’ part later while watching it at your own.

    MISS TANAKPUR HAAZIR HO is a dramatized version of some true but bizarre events in the outskirts of a Haryanvi speaking region. Outlined as a social satire, film marks the début of Vinod Kapri once a media professional. No wonder, he chooses the weirdest and the strangest news material to bring out the darkest side of today’s illogically insensitive society; but in a quite entertaining way. It’s silly, impractical, rarest of the rare but satirical to the core. Yes, the bland and colorless toilet humor and the coldness towards rape victims do record a serious damage to its promised picture-frame of a meaningful cinema still, it is a good effort.

    The powerful ‘Pradhan’ of Tanakpur [Annu Kapoor] has a young wife [Hrishita Bhatt] half his age at home seeking love, care and compassion in a young man from the neighborhood [Rahul Bagga of MASTRAM]. Soon, his findings about the relationship turn into an ugly game of power to eliminate the man in question. The cops [Om Puri] and the law-enforcement professionals also start acting and sounding illogical within the given parameters of their job-profile. At stake is the worth of our incompetent system that hardly shows any signs of empathy and understanding. India is an ideal and a perfect setting for such ‘Tamasha’. This is a world where dresses are held responsible for rapes and not the men behind it.

    Vinod Kapri scores marks at various levels. His grit and guts to weave humor possibly in every frame don’t stick to only the sharp and piercing dialogues Haryanvi is famous for or in the crude characters but also with a prominent usage of quirky sign-boards and quotes painted on walls. Film if falters intentionally or involuntarily, in handling of rape-victims. Some of the remarks made on the victim by various sections of the society are as painful as the inhuman two-finger test. The film severely and frequently tints itself as a bizarre entertainer, mostly because of the ridiculousness in the plot. After all, how often we hear, learn or read about such unimaginable cases? So, when the lead female character expresses her inactiveness and helplessness against the influential powers to the buffalo towards the climax; you too feel the intensity and relate to the proposed end.

    Of the performances, Kamlesh Gill as a rough and ready vocal-tank Bua is spot-on. Veteran Sanjai Mishra looks over-enthusiastically powering in every scene even though the script has less to offer him. Restricting Ravi Kishan to what script demands from him and not throwing his weight all around is another milestone achieved [Pun intended]. Rest all including big names like Annu Kapoor and Om Puri do it in a measured mode. Hrishita and Rahul hardly impress.

    MISS TANAKPUR HAAZIR HO comes from a brutal reality of a world which most would not find relatable and realistic enough, yet it manages to hit the bull’s eye with just an affirmation that all of it is based on real events. Watch it, because that’s what we do most of the times whenever something like this happens around us! [2.5/5]
