a 70s romantic comedy
9 April 2014 | by SumanShakyaSee all my reviews

"Manchali" is basically a comedy where the hero brings an arrogant heroine into track. In between we have all the ingredients familiar from 70s romantic comedies like trains, goons, fights, songs. But all the things have a bit faded look which won't hold you much. Besides the dated and faded look, there is much of co incidences and overacting from Sanjeev Kumar. The heroine, Leena Chandrawarkar, doesn't look impressive and others also don't leave their mark. As a whole, the film doesn't raise above average but isn't even that bad. If you're a fan of 70s movies, there is a bit of fun and story for you which makes it watchable.
