Kanchana 3 Tamil Movie Reviews
Kanchana 3: Actor-filmmaker Raghava Lawrencce is back with the fourth installment to the highly popular and successful Kanchana franchise which kicked off with the 2007 film Muni. which has been in the making for quite some time, comes at a time when there’s very little scope for freshness left in the horror genre, given the number of films that have come out in the last few years.
Therefore, Lawrencce borrows elements–that worked thrice with the masses–from his own Kanchana films to deliver a horror flick that’s both unfunny and preposterous.
Director: Raghava Lawrencce
Cast: Raghava Lawrencce, Vedhika, Oviya, Nikki Tamboli, Kovai Sarla and Soori
If you’ve seen the previous parts in the franchise, you already know the drill. The story is dated. When Kaali and Rosy are brutally killed, they return as ghosts and use Raghava to avenge their death. Like the previous parts, Kanchana 3 is set in a haunted house and it features three heroines who look glamorous but add no value to the plot. Kovai Sarla and Divyadarshini, as a tag team, return to essay the same roles that made them popular in the last two parts. Unfortunately, they make a mockery of themselves with extremely annoying antics and unfunny comedy sequences.
Kanchana 1 and Kanchana 2 had very strong performances from Sarath Kumar and Nithya Menen. As a transgender seeking revenge, Sarath Kumar was phenomenal. In Kanchana 2, Nithya Menen as a differently abled character yearning for revenge after being brutally killed, immediately struck a chord with the masses.
The flashback portions worked big time with family audiences and even with general public alike. The flashback episode in Kanchana 3 lacks the emotional heft that the previous parts brought to the story.
Kanchana 3, which is loud, annoying and barely entertaining, should ideally be the last film of the franchise. But Lawrencce has other plans as he announces the next part towards the end of this film. That thought is scarier than this film.
