After the two (Bang Bang and Haider) big releases of last week, we are now seeing three low budget movies hitting the screens today. One among them is Navneet Behal’s crime-romantic entertainer ‘Tamanchey’ which has Nikhil Dwivedi and Richa Chadha playing the lead roles. The crime love story genre always has a lot to offer to keep their viewers hooked on to their seats and that is exactly what we expect out of Tamanchey. So, let's find out what Navneet Behal's Tamanchey has in store for us!
Tamanchey is about two criminals Munna Mishra, a kidnapper (played by Nikhil Dwivedi) and Babu, a drug peddler (played by Richa Chadda) who meet when they are put in the same police van. The van meets with an accident which helps them escape together. travel together to avoid the police who is on their look-out and as like in any other film, they end falling for each other during their escapades.
One day, Babu Suddenly disappears leaving Munna in Delhi and so Munna starts searching for his love in every nook and corner of the city. To his shock, he finds Babu at the place of a drug mafia don Rana (Damandeep Singh). What is the relation between Babu and Rana? Will Munna be able to get back his love and how it will happen is what the rest of ‘Tamanchey’ is all about.
The film’s main leads are the biggest plus of this quirky movie. Nikhil Dwivedi has performed to his best and his accent suits him perfectly while he has emoted well in most of the scenes. Richa Chadda is perfect in her role and performs in par with her male lead. Her acting as an intelligent criminal is very appealing and she carries it to perfection. The other big plus is the sizzling chemistry between the lead pair and their intensity in the love making scenes is an example of that.
Damandeep Singh as drug dealer has done justice with his unusual dialogues and a few action scenes in the second half are good.
Except for the main leads, there is nothing much for others to perform. The screenplay of the film is the main culprit as the pace of the film makes you yawn for the complete first half. The story picks up only minutes before the interval. There are many extended scenes in the film which leaves the audience scratching their heads. One has to keep their brain in a silent mood as there is no logics in most of the scenes.
Even though the second half is little better when compared to first half, it has been rushed. The plot is pretty much predictable and nothing new or interesting in it.
The music in the film is just about average and so is the background score. The cinematographer has done amateur work as he could not capture the scenes and especially the action sequences are not covered well. Though the editor has done a decent job in the second half, the entire first half falls flat.
Coming to the debutante director Navneet Behal, his script seems to be good on paper, but he failed in translating it to the big screen. He messed up with his screenplay and ended up losing grip on his script.
Tamanchey fires off when boy, Munna, a rustic kidnapper from Uttar Pradesh meets girl, Babu, a street smart drug peddler from Delhi. As criminals go, they meet in police custody while being escorted to jail.
