In a small North Indian village, Legend has it that a 100 years-old witch lives in an abandoned mansion on the village outskirts, and any person who goes inside is turned into an animal. In the same village a clever, naughty girl named Chunni (Shweta Prasad) lives with her widowed father, grandmother and her identical twin Munni, who is just the exact opposite of Chunni in mannerisms. But one day, Chunni's prank causes Munni enters the witch's mansion and the witch turns her into a hen. Chunni strikes a deal with Makdee (Shabana Azmi) that she will present Makdee with 100 hens in exchange for Munni in human form. How she manages this task forms the crux of the rest of this fun-filled children's movie.Written by
Horror films are never adviced to children. But, Vishal Bhardwaj in his debut venture tried to fuse the two and does it successfully. Not a proper horror film, but scary enough for Kids. It's a colourful film, it has to be. Not a complete fairytale, but a joyride. Songs, to my surprise, have some meaning but still suitable for everyone.The butcher man's character brings a smile on your face every time. But it's Shweta Basu, as Chunni and Munni who steals the show. Even in emotional scenes, she was so convincing at her age. Adults can also enjoy this kind of film but it wouldn't be scary for them. But don't expect a Maqbool or and Omkara here.
