“Not the best in the franchise,but entertaining and spooky enough to win you over.”
To me, the Muni series is not horror. It is just very cleverly crafted comedy that masquerades as the scariest thing to hit Kollywood. It has everything; humour, gags, ghosts, exorcists, and even homophobia (in the case of this film). I love Raghava Lawrence for his sheer shameless balls to make a Tamil horror movie series, and actually get away with it.
Raghav, played by Raghava Lawrence (so original), is the cameraman of a television crew shooting a documentary about a haunted house, lead by the overly confident journalist Nandini, played quite brilliantly by Taapsee Pannu. The story of this film is exactly the same as the ones before; Raghava is a pussy who is afraid of the unknown, spoofy paranormal activities lead up to the actual paranormal beings, and Kovai Sarala plays Raghava's mother. There are a few differences in this one though. Taapsee is the one to get possessed by the ghosts before Raghava, you see two ghosts doing coochie-coo through other people's bodies, and the real kicker: Raghava resembles one of the ghosts of the undead congregation.
The base story of the ghosts revolves around Ganga (Nithya Menen, who plays a role completely opposite to that in her recent release OK Kanmani), a cripple whose main goal in life is to prove that she can get married. When her fiance embarrasses her by leaving her at the altar, she gets 'saved' by Shiva (the man who resembles Raghava), a local goon who has always harboured a weird but undying and deep love for Ganga. But surprise surprise, another local goonda wants Ganga desperately married off to his mentally challenged son Shankar, and when she refuses, he murders all the people close to her, including Shiva.
Calling Kanchana 2 scary is like calling Scary Movie scary. It's hilarious to the max. I recommend watching this for the laughs, the adorable romance between Nithya and Raghava, and most importantly Raghava's portrayal of the ghosts, which is always an entertaining thing to watch.
