'Miss Tanakpur Hazir Ho' is a story of a village youngster Arjun (Rahul Bhagga) and his secret relationship with Maya (Hrishita Bhatt). Maya's husband Sualaal Gandaas (Annu Kapoor) is highly suspicious about his wife and one fine day, catches Arjun with Maya red handed. Sualaal's henchmen beat Arjun badly and later files a case against him for raping Sualaal's prize winning buffalo - Miss. Tanakpur. Sualaal also goes to the khap panchayat to pass a verdict that arjun must marry the buffalo. This leads to police investigation, followed by a court case and what happens next is what the entire film is all about.
Positive points :-
Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho is based on true events that happened in a village in India. Vinod Kapri, a journalist-turned-filmmaker selects a subject no one dared to pit their hands on. The concept being this unique, the movie was in news since its trailer was out.
The movie also very well describes the essence of true India and basically targets false police cases and hypocrisy that are still considered rituals in our society.
Negative points :-
The saddest part about the film is that Kapri tries to make fun of the rape victims and rapists in the weirdest ways possible, which may also offend some. Despite having actors like Om Puri, Sanjay Mishra and Ravi Kishan in it, the movie and its bad screenplay makes even the best of actors look worse.
Hrishitaa Bhatt and Rahul Bagga seem to be least interested in acting in such a film. The two look disinterested and do not even delivery dialogues properly. From the court scenes to examining the victims, almost all of the sequences of the film are absurdly shot and explained.
Even though the trailer of the film attracted eyes, the first 15 minutes in the film, and you will know that only the trailer was worth a watch.
Technical points :-
Even after choosing a concept so different, Kapri fails to tell the story properly. The screenplay is confusing, induced of bad metaphors and extremely boring. The 135 minute run time is too much to handle and you may see people walking out in between. The film is over-dramatized to huge extents. The dialogues are absurd and even the funniest ones are not even remotely funny.
This is a fairly enjoyable film, but a tad too lengthy. Although it tackles a universal truth about India, it has a very local and regional flavour which may not appeal to everyone.
