Chandramukhi was a groundbreaking sensation in its time, paving the way for modern thrillers. It inspired numerous films, though few truly captivated the audience. Years later, the same director returned with a sequel, starring Lawrence and Kangana Ranaut.
However, Chandramukhi 2 failed to impress viewers with its trailer and songs, resulting in a barrage of social media trolls and memes. During promotional events, the lead actors inadvertently revealed a significant plot twist.
While criticism suggested that P Vasu merely remade the original, Lawrence and Kangana aimed to emphasize the differences but ended up disclosing a crucial aspect. The original had Chandramukhi’s soul possessing Jyothika, focusing on her revenge against the king. The true form of Chandramukhi was never shown as a person, except in a painting.
Chandramukhi 2 takes a different route, with Kangana Ranaut portraying the actual Chandramukhi and exploring the story when she enters the bungalow. Lawrence steps into the role Rajinikanth previously played, and details about his character have remained under wraps. As the release date approaches in just five days, Chandramukhi 2 struggles to generate significant buzz, facing competition from other films like Skanda and Pedda Kapu 1. Its ability to draw audiences to theaters remains uncertain.
