Chandramukhi 2 Movie Review 2023

 

Chandramukhi 2 is an engaging sequel to Manichitrathazhu and features comedy, horror, and music all within one film. Fans have given the movie rave reviews across social media platforms.

Raghava Lawrence gives an outstanding performance as Vettaiyan in this film, while Kangana Ranaut shines in her role of Chandramukhi. However, certain issues prevent this masterpiece from becoming an unforgettable classic.

 

Story line

 

Chandramukhi 2, directed by P Vasu and released in 2005, is an unsuccessful follow up. Though she attempts to recapture some of its magic from 2005’s hit Chandramukhi, P Vasu is unsuccessful; as there is no compelling plot and difficulty keeping viewers’ attention throughout its runtime.

Story of the Film : Ranganayaki (Radhika Sarathkumar), who heads a wealthy family going through hard times. To provide support to their religious deity but they were warned it may resurrect Vettaiyan Raja who once opposed Chandramukhi for centuries ago.

Flashbacks make it hard to follow the main storyline, while most of the rest is about the family’s struggle in an abandoned palace. Unfortunately, there are some unpleasant and often sexist scenes as well; also, director did not try to give fresh insight on this tale.

Even with talented actors on board, the film falls short of expectations. Although MM Keeravani’s background score is impressive, it lacks suspense and thrill as seen in its predecessor film Chandramukhi. Kangana Ranaut does an admirable job as Chandramukhi; her character may not be quite as captivating though her other cast members Lakshmi Menon, Mahima Nambiar, Vadivelu and Srushti Dange all make notable appearances.

 

Acting

 

There are certain films in Tamil cinema that have become part of our cultural fabric; Chandramukhi by Rajinikanth, Jyotika and Nayanthara is an iconic classic that was celebrated around the world when released back in 2005. When news came of a sequel being made available for screenings, fans eagerly anticipated seeing whether its creators could capture that same magic.

P Vasu’s remake tries to capture some of the same elements found in his original film. Unfortunately, however, results vary – those seeking a quick distraction may find it entertaining; but those expecting something substantial might feel disappointed by what they see here.

Radhika Sarathkumar’s daughter enters into an unconventional marriage against their family’s wishes, only for her husband to die shortly thereafter in a tragic car accident, leaving two young children behind. After being told by a guruji that they must conduct a ritual at an ancestral temple that it’s haunted by Chandramukhi’s spirit, she reluctantly agrees. The rest of Radhika’s family learn that Chandramukhi herself haunts it.

Lakshmi Menon and Mahima Nambiar stand out, while Vadivelu attempts to be funny but his attempts often fall flat. Additionally, songs performed by MM Keeravani are captivating.

 

Music

 

This film’s soundtrack will include 10 songs composed by MM Keeravani and is scheduled for theatrical release on September 15. Additionally, there will be a special audio launch event with several top stars present.

P Vasu’s Chandramukhi 2 is the sequel to 2005 hit Tamil film Chandramukhi, one of the highest-grossing movies ever in Indian cinema and an inspiration for numerous remakes. Like its predecessor, this sequel features similar elements including slapstick humor and ghost action sequences; however it fails to capture the magic of its predecessor.

An impoverished family struggling with misfortune are advised by their guruji to seek recourse from their clan deity, Vettaiyapuram Palace. Their gathering accidentally awakens Chandramukhi (Kangana Ranaut), who seeks revenge against Vettaiyan Raja for killing her long ago.

Raghava Lawrence and Kangana Ranaut play the lead roles, with supporting actors including Vadivelu, Mahima Nambiar, Lakshmi Menon, Raadhika Sarathkumar, Srushti Dange and Rao Ramesh all making appearances. Produced by Subaskaran Allirajah under Lyca Productions banner and shot in various locations across India and the US; its release date on September 28 is expected to set new box office records!

 

Special appearances

 

Chandramukhi, featuring Rajinikanth and Jyotika as its stars, remains a classic that many Tamil fans fondly remember. Rajinikanth’s unforgettable performance as King Thalaiva with its unforgettable catch phrase “Laka Laka” had an immense impact on audiences while Jyothika’s charismatic screen presence and powerful songs contributed to its success; so it only seems natural that its sequel would attempt to recreate that magic.

This film chronicles a wealthy family led by Ranganayaki (Radhika Sarathkumar) as they attempt to reconnect with estranged relatives at Vettaiyapuram Palace for their clan’s puja ceremony, only for that reunion to become supernatural as their ancestral house is haunted by Chandramukhi – an evil spirit who haunts its ancestors and leads them astray.

Raghava Lawrence is an avid follower of Rajinikanth and delivers an excellent performance as Pandian the caretaker and Sengottaiyan the villain, tickling audiences’ funny bones with his slapstick comedy. Lakshmi Menon impresses audiences with her impeccable dance moves while Mahima Nambiar adds some sensuality for dramatic effect.

Vadivelu reprises his role from the original movie and adds significantly to the entertainment value with his humorous dialogue and body language. Other cast members include Srushti Dange, Radhika Sarathkumar, Mahima Nambiar, Rao Ramesh, Subiksha Krishnan and Vignesh – directed by P Vasu and produced under Lyca Productions by Subaskaran Allirajah; music composed by MM Keeravani.
