Claps for: Mithun Chakraborty's acting.
Slaps for: The lengthy mess and Mishti's acting.
Popcorn Refill: Many
The Story: Kaanchi(Mishti) is a sweet mischievous girl enjoying life in her hilly village with her childhood sweetheart(Kartik Tiwari). A greedy businessman and his corrupt politician brother are trying to grab the land at throwaway prices. The story revolves around Kaanchi set on a mission to avenge her lover's death and punish the corrupt family.
Performance: Mishti as Kaanchi is annoying. The strange squinting, pouting and talking in a childish voice to appear endearing is too much throughout. Bizzare dialogue delivery combined with shrill squeaky screeching is ear grating. Kartik Tiwari is fairly average. Mithun as the corrupt evil politician and Rishi Kapoor as a lustful businessman are good. The rest of the cast is average to fairly decent.
On a musical note: The soundtrack is average and at times garishly loud. The songs are loud and spring at you time and again. The cacophonous Mushtanda should have been avoided. Overall Kaanchi is a forgettable album.
Combo on offer: Kaanchi talks about fighting for justice, against corruption and doing right. The plot is predictably simple yet unoriginal. There are too many loopholes and questionable incidents. The excessive attempts at describing Kaanchi's character seem unwarranted. The sudden rambling of corny lines is overdone. Mishti's bad acting adds to the misery. Overall it's a painful experience leaving you exasperated.
Our Verdict: We give Kaanchi Slaps for being a drawn-out screechy affair.
Here is the public review of Kaanchi:
