Who can forget the 2005 Tamil language film Chandramukhi, starring prominent actors Rajinikanth, Jyothika, and Prabhu? The answer is no one. It was loosely based on the 1993 Malayalam movie Manichitrathazhu. The 2007 Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa was also a remake of the same Malayalam film. Nearly twenty years later, the second film in the series, Chandramukhi 2, was released theatrically on September 28, 2023. It is the standalone sequel to the earlier-released movie. A well-established entertainment streamer has already bagged the film’s digital rights. Keep reading to learn more details.

Chandramukhi 2 Reviews and IMDb Rating
Chandramukhi 2 received mixed reviews. Times of India gave it 2.5 out of 5 stars. They feel that “The film somehow manages to be not bad! Credit for this has to go to the smart manner in which P Vasu expands the backstory of Vettaiyan and Chandramukhi… And while Kangana Ranaut and Raghava Lawrence may not match up to Rajinikanth, being stars in their own right, they manage to hold our attention with their screen presence. In the end, it turns out to be the kind of film that will mirror the mood the viewer is in. Those who just want a momentary diversion might find it passable while those looking for something more will feel underwhelmed.” Indian Express gave it one star out of 5. Reviewing the film, they wrote, “Kangana Ranaut, Raghava Lawrence’s mind-numbing sequel taints the legacy of the original.” They also said melodramatic sequel that at times comes across as a high-budgeted parody. On IMDb, Chandramukhi 2 has a rating of 3.6/10, as voted by 1,312 users.
