#Kanchana2 1st half done. #SURESHOT is the word. Horror-Comedy blend is working big time. Decent VFX work too. pre-Interval segment mirattal
#Kanchana2 1st half - All the male actors' comedy timing big plus. #Lawrence sema enjoyment. Pachak Pachak nu kudhichi ukandhukararu ;)
#Kanchana2 1st half - The 1st summer BB is ready. All center audiences gonna lap this big time. Horror-comedy charm. 2nd half a podunga pa
#Kanchana2 - 1st half is definitely better than the 2nd. But overall technically solid, grt comedy, horror thrills & #Lawrence in control
#Kanchana2 - #Lawrence stands tall as a performer putting on so many makeovers and difficult costumes. Remarkable versatility.
#Kanchana2 - The 2nd half flashback is a letdown as it is typical and melodramatic. But watch out for #NithyaMenon in a marked role.
#Kanchana2 done- 2nd half has the expected flashback, the typical 'saami padam' elements, Kovai Sarala's super comedy timing&the loud climax

#Kanchana2 –3/5. A big thumbs up 2 #Taapsee her best after #Baby. #NithyaMenen fab.After a racy1st half, 2nd flashback full of melodrama.
#Kanchana2 3/5. Kovai Sarala & rest of comedy brigade Sriman, Manobala, Mayilsamy r terrific when they combine with Lawrence it is terrific.
#Kanchana2 – 3/5. Story is nothing but an excuse 2 make people laugh & create some scare in them. Same HC template followed, sequel soon
#Kanchana2 3/5. Jeepers creepers, horror comedy (HC), jolly good fun ride. Works largely due 2 #RaghavaLawrence comic timing & packaging.

Overall #Kanchana2 is a fitting film from the muni franchise. Cud have named the film Ganga actually. Definitely a MUST WATCH. 3.5/5 rating
#Kanchana2 2nd half. NithyaMenen, Tapsee and Lawrence rocked with their performances. Music was good and loud. Kovai Sarala was hilarious.
Done with #Kanchana2. 2nd half was a bit lengthy. But climax was racy. The flashback scenes cud have been trimmed a bit. Less thrills too.
#Kanchana2 1st half. I think 2nd half will be more of a flashback and revenge. Might have some sequential humor but expecting more thrills.
#Kanchana2 1st half. I liked the screenplay. The way Lawrence is taking the movie. Perfect interval block. Waiting to see who is the ghost.
#Kanchana2 1st half. Its a mix of comedy and horror. Entertaining also. Can hear some women screaming here :-) . BGM is too good.
#Kanchana 1st half. Lot of thrills and chills. The ghost just made an appearance. Lawrence is awesome. Some scenes are predictable. But good
