Kanchana was the film which changed the horror genre in Tamil Cinema forever. It was the film which showed us that horror- comedy will always work. It started with Muni. Vedhika was Lawrence’s pair in the film. Raj Kiran played an important role as the man possessed by ghost. Lawrence as the timid man and Kovai Sarala as the humourous mother were an absolute riot on screen. It was a small film but it paved the way for the blockbuster sequels Kanchana and Kanchana 2. No one expected the Kanchana franchise to be such a big hit but it changed Tamil Cinema forever.
Kanchana was a blockbuster and lakshmi Rai was the heroine. But the major highlight of the film was the comedy by Kovai Sarala and Devadarshini. The film’s humour along with the songs made sure that the film became one of the biggest blockbusters of all time in Tamil cinema and paved the way for so many imitations along similar lines. The Kanchana template was repeated in so many films. In fact the pei template was so popular that one pei film released every week. Kanchana was a mass superhit. It was only natural that a sequel followed to cash in on the success of the mass superhit.
Now it is time for Kanchana 3. This time Vedhika returns as Lawrence’s pair after Muni. Technically Kanchana 3 is nothing but Muni 4. The film also has big boss fame Oviya along with Nikitha. Kovai Sarala returns along with Sreeman for Kanchana 3. The film also has Soori, Manobala, Sathyaraj, Kishore and so on. This is a huge ensemble cast. With Kovai Sarala returning the humour might once again work wonders at the box office. The film is all set to release on April 19th and is produced by Sun Pictures. Thaman is the music director.
