TAMANCHEY - Why we keep on making films on the same old plots repeatedly? (Review by Bobby Sing)

10 Oct, 2014 | Movie Reviews / 2014 Releases

Beginning with the only name to talk about in the film i.e. Richa Chadda, I always wished to see her in a solo heroine role making a fresh breakthrough as she has repeatedly done in her chosen films in the past. But TAMANCHEY was not the kind of film I expected from the talented girl and was quite surprised to see her doing all ‘forceful acting’ in a routine kind of role having nothing in it at all post the initial 10 minutes of the film to be precise.
TAMANCHEY starts off promisingly with the energetic version of R.D. Burman’s “Pyar Mein Dil Pe Maar De Goli” played with the titles and then falls back to the same storyline of two strangers meeting in a mishap, falling in love and then being the rebels marching towards a typical end already seen in several other films. Nikhil Dwivedi tries hard to impress with the local UP lingo and Damandeep Sidhu makes many visible efforts to gain some kind of attention with his intense act. But neither the romance or action works right from the word go nor the direction of debutant Navneet Behal shows any signs of freshness throughout its stale narration.
Both the camerawork and background score fail to deliver mainly due to the poor writing making no impression on the viewer whatsoever. And further all predictable sequences bring the film down pretty badly. For instance, can you believe a romance being enjoyed by the robber couple during a bank robbery in the locker room itself? And moreover is it necessary to have a Jagaran sequence in every film based in Delhi since the earlier ‘Hits’ had it in them too?
In short though a few songs in the film sound much better than many current soundtracks, still they are not able to contribute anything special in the movie unfortunately. And the only two good things in TAMANCHEY remain the use of opening notes of song "Pyar Mein Dil Pe Maar De Goli" at few places making you tap your feet and the beautiful Richa Chadda dressed in an Indian attire and going for the skin show in few of her bold scenes. On the other hand, I frankly couldn’t understand why the first time director Navneet readily chose such a rotten subject for his directorial venture and didn’t opt for something fresh and interesting which at least could have got him some marginal praises for the effort made.
However as an ending note I would particularly like to ask Richa Chadda, the one question which is probably put to every single artist promoting his or her film in their promotional interviews that “What really made you sign this film and say yes?”
And to make it specific, the question here is not being asked in a positive tone at all.
Rating : 1 / 5 (including 0.5 just for its opening 10 minutes and for the use of that cult RDB track)
