  •  Bollywood Hungama Rating-4
Bollywood is a place which thrives on creativity and talent. Even though talent is irreplaceable, the creativity aspect sometimes gets 'translated' into many rehashes. A couple of weeks back, we saw the release of DESI KATTEY, which in English means country guns. This week again the

  •  Hindustan Times -Rohit Vats Rating-4
Dhaniya bo denge, deewar khod denge aur likh denge kranti – A dialogue from Tamanchey. There’re spoilers ahead, so you’re requested to come back to this review after watching the film. Thanks a lot if you’re still reading it. What happens when Bonnie and Clyde meets Maqbool? Tamanchey

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-3
In more adept hands, a thriller peopled by a two-timing gangster’s moll, a spiky small-time crook on the run from the law and a cranky Haryanvi muscleman might have been an enjoyably zany ride through the dark alleyways of the Delhi underworld. Tamanchey falls way short of the mark.
  •  Daily Bhaskar Rating-5
The unusual story of Tamanchey entertains in parts, and the film is watchable despite many loopholes. Imagine what will happen if two criminals fall in love with each other? Their date will be a bank robbery, the future planning would involve drugs supply, and the favorite pass time

  •  Times Of India -Meena Iyer Rating-5
In Tamanchey, instead of a self-righteous boy serenading a vestal virgin, you have a bad boy romancing a bad girl. No explanations are offered on why Munna (Nikhil Dwivedi), a petty thief, is infatuated with drug peddler Babu (Richa Chadha) or why either of them is so drawn

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-4
Bad boy Munna (Nikhil Dwivedi), whose ‘bijiness’ is making money by threatening people meets bad girl Babu (Richa Chadda) in a police van and before we say baa-boo they are getting 'phyjical' in a bad, oops, bed of tomatoes. From then on there is no stopping the couple

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-2
For a film relying on a retro number by not just going the whole hog promoting it but also having it in the tagline (read. Pyaar mein dil pe maar de goli), you know there's hardly much to boast of. A gangster rom-com, Tamanchey is about two small time thugs, Munna Mishra (Nikhil Dwivedi)

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-3
This is a film about a ruthless drug dealer who speaks in a Haryanvi accent with a name like Rana Tau, his girlfriend who turns out to be inconsequential in the scheme of things, and a new kid on the block who joins his gang. No prizes for guessing who falls in love with whom, under whose nose. Sigh.

  •  India Today -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-2
Tamanchey is a love story of small-time crooks Raja and Babu. They meet, they fight, they make love and then the inevitable happens. Or shall we say, the obvious happens. Babu disappears into thin air leaving Raja in a lurch. The dismayed lover boy sets out to find her and bumps into Rana.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-2
Richa Chaddha of GANGS OF WASSEYPUR and FUKREY is a pale shadow of her characters in TAMANCHEY. Faced with no plot or script, the girl is left to fend for herself. And what does she do? She goes into 'overacting mode'. Forcing out dialogues to sound mean and rough and 'making out'

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-0
For this dish, you need to assemble the following. Girl. Should be able to handle guns and talk tough. Also, should be able to carry off tight spaghetti straps and razor backs. Needs to be from Delhi, because that’s where all the tough girls are from, right? Guy. Who speaks some kind of weird mish-mash

  •  Book My Show -Teena Elizabeth Rating-3
Tamanchey (English: locally-made guns) is a romantic-action drama set in the world of crime. There are two outlaws, guns, goons, crime, romance. But everything goes haywire. Debutant director, Navneet Behal tries to offer a desi version of Bonnie and Clyde. But, Tamanchey proves to be a sketchy affair.

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-3
Quentin Tarantino and his trademark Spaghetti Western scores are perhaps the worst things to happen to contemporary Indian cinema. After the bizarre Revolver Rani, it's Tamanchey's turn to forcibly go retro on us. There's a total of less than three seconds of silence in all of Tamanchey

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-2
I wish I could say what script but the predictable narrative and the lack of novelty means a lack of good script but a script was surely in place for the film. It was predictable and not exactly unseen. Hero and heroine fall in love. She is the mistress of a menacing Gangster and the story kicks off.

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-4
A juvenile attempt to twine the Tarantino wine with desi Bonnie and Clyde whiskey, first timer producer director Suryaveer Singh Bhullar’s ‘Tamanchey’ shoots many blanks in this desi action, attitude ‘guy’ type exercise that aims to be ‘cool’ but turns cold. Its muggy for anyone to justify

  •  Bollywood Life -Subramanian Harikumar Rating-6
The film falters at the start but quickly recovers thanks to its charming leads. In an era where audience expects something hatke everytime it walks in to a theatre, it takes a lot of effort and brainstorming as a filmmaker to floor the audience. Tamanchey is one such film which almost manages
