Kanchana 2 (2015)
Kanchana 2 is a comedy horror film written and directed Raghavendra Lawrence, who also plays the lead actor. It is the third part in the Muni franchise, following Muni and Muni 2: Kanchana. Kanchana 2 is among the most expected films this summer particularly after the release of the terrific first look stills.
Produced by Thenandal Films, the movie is presented by Sun Pictures starring Taapsee, Kovai Sarala, Sriman, Devadarshini and Nithya Menen. Manobala, Mayilsamy, Nan Kadavul Rajendran are casted too.
Haunted house, dead woman’s spirit carrying the vengeance of betrayal is what you would usually expect of a horror movie. But ‘Kanchana 2’ chooses to be different.
Lawrence is as usual afraid of ghosts and his mother Kovai Sarala is tired of the things he does due to his fear. The endeavour begins as a TV channel sets out to capture ghosts, as marketing tactic. He works as a camera man in TV Channel and the crew accidentally end up in a haunted house and see horror unfolding in front of their eyes. Few days later, their friends discover Lawrence and Taapsee are haunted.
While they choose a dark, spooky house and set ghosts artificially, the crew is in for a rude shock when they are chased and eventually haunted by real spirits. This time, it is not one woman, but quite many that come in turns, seeking revenge. The only thread to connect the present day Lawrence with the mystery of spirits, is people relating him to a ‘motta’ Shiva.
Who has haunted them? How they died? What they want is the rest of the story that unfolds layers after layers.
