  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-5
Subhash Ghai is back on the director's chair after a hiatus. After YUVVRAAJ [2008]. It's indeed a long sabbatical, considering the Showman has continuously churned out movies in varied genres. Mostly entertainers. With KAANCHI, Ghai decides to entertain in his own way,

  •  Times of India -Meena Iyer Rating-5
Kaanchi (Mishti Mukherjee) is a virginal beauty from Koshampa in Uttaranchal who gets into brawls with the local bullies. And yet, there is an innocence about her that is alluring. We're told that her late father, an army man, is whom she has got her spirited nature from.

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-3
As I sat through Subhash Ghai’s latest offering, an impassive vendetta movie masquerading as meaningful propaganda in an empty suburban theatre of Mumbai for nearly two and half hours, I looked at my watch, empty notepad (I like to scribble notes while reviewing a film) and recalled

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-4
Well the movie has an interesting plot line attached to it, but ends up being an another disappointment from Mr. Ghai due to his outdated style of direction and overdose of everything attached to the film. We should love and cherish this director for his wonderful films from the 70's,

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5
The world has moved on, but Subhash Ghai continues to cling to the essential values of his storytelling style: glitz, glamour, visual sweep and loads of melodrama.And that, in the context of Kaanchi, the veteran director’s first film in five years, isn’t such a bad thing.

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-2
A fiery young girl from the hills takes up cudgels on behalf of her people and fights off the bad guys. This is the burden of Subhash Ghai’s new film, and he tells it in the same manner that made his films so watchable in the ’80s, and so outdated in 2014.Kaanchi (Mishti) is headstrong,

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-5
This is one of those films where the topic is more interesting than the film itself. The story explores the possibility of an ordinary person taking on the Goliaths of the world. In this case, the protagonist is rebellious mountain girl Kaanchi (Mishti) and the antagonist is a spurned lover,

  •  Mid Day -Shakti Shetty Rating-4
Fifteen years ago, Subhash Ghai came up with Taal, undoubtedly one of the most memorable Hindi films till date. Just like in that blockbuster, the acclaimed filmmaker once again sets his story against the picturesque backdrop of the hilly regions in Northern India.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-3
The Showman of film industry Subhai Ghai hasn't really been in the business of filmmaking since a while. Despite having tremendous blockbusters to his credit like Hero, Karz, Taal among many others, the filmmaker saw some dampeners like Kisna and Yuvraj in his last attempts.

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-2
Subhash Ghai's latest heroine is yet another innocent, virginal girl from a hilly, misty small town. She is feisty, free-spirited, foulmouthed and shares with Rowdy Rathore the motto of "Don't Angry Me". If the first half is about her being an annoying, attention-seeking, tantrum-throwing beauty

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-1
It is difficult not to be harsh with a film like this, no matter who the filmmaker in question is. Close your eyes and imagine a Subhash Ghai film made in the last decade. What do you see? I see Uttaranchal/Nainital. I see a pretty (new) girl prancing across the hills and children following her,
