Kaanchi is a romantic story of, well, “the unbreakable” girl called Kaanchi, who represents the inner strength of a woman. The story represents the many suppressed youth, especially women, against power and injustice in the country.

The film’s lead actors are the new Mishti and the cute and frustrated Pyar Ka Punchnama boy Kartik Tiwari. The film also has Rishi Kapoor and Mithin Chakraborty, two strong roots of Bollywood. The Subhash Ghai film is to be released on 25th April 2014.

Kaanchi Re Kaanchi

The title track which starts of just as any song turns out to be a folk song by Sukhwinder Singh. The song completely depicts the story and the powerful character of Kaanchi. Not very interesting.  

Tu Sab Kuch Re

A romantic track by Sonu Nigam, Anweshaa Ismail Darbar, which sounds almost like a threat to each other, and the video is as unromantic as the track. However, somehow this track goes well with the whole rural love story, as it’s raw and natural (as opposed to a typical peppy or dramatically composed romantic Bollywood song).

Main Mushtanda

This song though at first does not seem to fit in the movie or its very genre, its lyrics are quite intriguing and somehow are intertwined with the story of the film. Sung by Mika with a little bit of help by Aishwarya Majmudar, this song symbolizes the rich and corrupted ones who hold power, booze and chicks.


The name of the song is actually the name of the place where Kaanchi lives. Starting of with the tune of “Sare Jahan Se Accha”, this song goes on to describe the village. It’s so unbelievably boring and out of tune, that I couldn’t bare to hear the full track. Oh, and it is sung by Sanchita Bhattacharya, Aman Trikha, and Anweshaa Subhash Ghai.

Kaisa Hai Dard Mera

Ankit Tiwari sings this intense tragedy song, and he has sung it so beautifully. Though yet this song sounds very familiar in terms of tune and some of the lyrics are overused in Bollywood tragedy songs. The song is too slow though, and would probably be best heard as a part/background score of the movie.

Kambal Ke Neeche

Starting of with the “Nagin” tune, this song portrays about all the things that happen, kambal ke neeche! Random songs have been put together, like “Nayak nahi, khalnayak hoon main”, along with, or rather in reference to kambal ke neeche. Strangely, it’s quite interesting, innovative and funny! The song is sung by Sanchita Bhattacharya, Neeti Mohan and Aishwarya Majmudar.


 A party song that is a horrible attempt of partying. Sonu Nigam, who is clearly losing his edge, and Suzanne D Mello, who is rapping away in a rural film, are the vocals. The music is quite techno for the film as well.

Hindustan Kahan Hai

This interesting song by Sukhwinder Singh, Mohit Chauhan and Raj Pandit, is a patriotic song, or not?  It asks the very question almost every Indian asks: Where is that “sare jahan se accha Hindustan?” It probes the very meaning of the song, and what we have been taught all our lives to think/sing about our nation. Absolutely love it!

Adiye Adiye

This nasal song and its strange lyrics ensure that no one understands a thing about this song. Sung by Sanchita Bhattacharya, with some Spanish addition by Avril Quadros.

The music album is very intriguing and power-packed. Though you will probably not hear it on your day out to the beach, or picnic, or whatever, this album makes a very strong background score for the film, and gives a hint of what the film really will be like. Different.
