Jyothika’s remarkable performance in the 2005 horror comedy “Chandramukhi” has endured over the last 18 years.
However, when Kangana Ranaut took on the role of Chandramukhi in “Chandramukhi 2,” there were doubts about whether she could live up to Jyothika’s legacy.The film was released recently, and unfortunately, Kangana Ranaut’s performance has not been well-received.
In “Chandramukhi 2,” Kangana Ranaut’s portrayal of the iconic Chandramukhi character is nothing short of a masterclass in overacting. It’s a true marvel how, even in moments of stillness, she manages to exude an aura of over-the-top theatrics. It’s almost as if the director’s vision was to turn Chandramukhi into a walking, talking caricature.
And Kangana Ranaut seems to be living in a parallel universe, where her performance is met with unanimous acclaim. She’s sharing fan posts on socail media that shower her with praise, leaving us wondering if these fans are perhaps on her payroll.
Kangana Ranaut’s attempt to step into Jyothika’s shoes as Chandramukhi in “Chandramukhi 2” has been nothing short of a disaster. But Kangana’s unwavering optimism and penchant for retweeting praise-worthy comments truly deserve a standing ovation.
