Kanchana 2 Movie Review
– Endless Comedy and Horror in a Familiar Template
Raghava Lawrence is back with his 'Muni 3' after a long back and the phenomenal success of his earlier movie made it 'Kanchana-2' instead. The movie follows the same pattern of a scared hero yet it manages to keep audience glued to their seats with a lot of laughter and plenty of horror to scare them off the seats.

The story isn't something that would instantly impress you but it's how they have presented it matters. Raghava Lawrence is scared as usual and he goes with Tapsee for a television shoot where all the horror and comedy ensues.The Cast
Raghava Lawrence is too good in almost every sequence, be it the dance, fight or playing different roles when controlled by ghosts. The surprising entry is Tapsee Pannu who proves that she could act well and so does Nithya Menon in her role. Kovai Sarala is at ease and will bring tears to your eyes with laughter. Sreeman has a small but rib tickling portion.The Team
Cinematography is top notch with some amazing VFX towards the climax and music is a huge plus for Kanchana-2. The movie keeps you tied to it with both comedy and horror elements. The only area where it lacks is the flashback which isn't hard hitting as we say with Sarath Kumar in Kanchana.
While Lawrence has lost it a bit to his own work, this is definitely a great summer treat for everyone.
Bottom line – Prepare to laugh your hearts off and be scared to the core in this wholesome package.
