Vinod Kapri, is one of those journalist-turned-filmmakers, who promises to tickle your funny bone with a social satire based on true events. Starring Om Puri, Sanjay Mishra, Ravi Kishan, Hrishitaa Bhatt and Rahul Bagga, Miss Tanakpur Haazir ho releases today. Lets see what it has in store for us…

Story :

Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho is a story of a man (Rahul Bagga) who is accused by the village head (Om Puri) of apparently raping his buffalo, Miss Tanakpur. The village head also goes to the khap panchayat to pass a verdict that he must marry the buffalo. What happens next forms rest of the movie.

Positive points :

Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho is based on true events that happened in a village in India. Vinod Kapri, a journalist-turned-filmmaker selects a subject no one dared to pit their hands on. The concept being this unique, the movie was in news since its trailer was out.

The movie also very well describes the essence of true India and basically targets false police cases and hypocrisy that are still considered rituals in our society.

Negative points :

The saddest part about the film is that Kapri tries to make fun of the rape victims and rapists in the weirdest ways possible, which may also offend some. Despite having actors like Om Puri, Sanjay Mishra and Ravi Kishan in it, the movie and its bad screenplay makes even the best of actors look worse.

Hrishitaa Bhatt and Rahul Bagga seem to be least interested in acting in such a film. The two look disinterested and do not even delivery dialogues properly. From the court scenes to examining the victims, almost all of the sequences of the film are absurdly shot and explained.

Even though the trailer of the film attracted eyes, the first 15 minutes in the film, and you will know that only the trailer was worth a watch.

Technical aspects :

Even after choosing a concept so different, Kapri fails to tell the story properly. The screenplay is confusing, induced of bad metaphors and extremely boring. The 135 minute run time is too much to handle and you may see people walking out in between. The film is over-dramatized to huge extents. The dialogues are absurd and even the funniest ones are not even remotely funny.

Verdict :

On a whole, this film may have looked good from the outside, but do not even try to enter this long overdoes of weird drama. Ignore it this weekend. Rating : 1.5/5
