Ankahi Kahaniya Review: Abhishek Chaubey’s Story is Only Saviour For This Exceptionally Boring and Unrealistic Anthology

Ankahi Kahaniya Review

Ankahi Kahaniya Review Netflix: After the super successful Ludo and Lust stories it looks like Netflix is not going to stop making anthology series even after Disaster of Lust Stores and Ajeeb Dastaan. Netflix and Indian Anthology series are a never-ending love story, In the last few years we had already seen various anthology series like Ghost Stories, Ludo, Lust Stories, and Ajeeb Dataans, And now Netflix original Anthology film Ankahi Kahaniya released today on Netflix, I Just finished the series and here is the detailed review of the Netflix original film.

The movie stars some really talented actors like Abhishek Banerjee, Rinku Rajguru, Delzad Hiwale, Zoya Hussain, Kunal Kapoor, and Nikhil Dwivedi in main lead roles, the films are directed by Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, Abhishek Chaubey, and Saket Chaudhary. The film is approx 100 minutes long and all stories are approx 30-40 minutes long. Please note each story is different so you can start with any one of them. The first are last story is not family-friendly while the second story of the film is suitable to watch with family and Kids.

First Story

The first story of the film created by Ashwini Iyer Tiwari is about a small-town guy Pradeep who works at a Cloth shop in Mumbai. He is surrounded by busy friends with girlfriends and relationships and he is all alone. In the busy city, he falls for a female mannequin which was present in the shop, and here starts the Crazy story.

For the first time ever, I feel that Abhishek Banerjee is overacting in the film, this one is his weakest performance to date and I wish it would be the last one. He looks unrealistic, his expression, dialogue delivery everything looks fake and it makes everything looks awkward and all the credit goes to Silly writing and the direction. It was so shocking and hard to digest that a director like Ashwini Iyer Tiwari who had made Bareli Ki Barfi a few years has made this below-average story with zero realistic feelings.

Second Story

The second story of the film revolves around a Poor girl Manjari and a guy who works as a ticket checker and vendor at a Single Screen cinema hall in Mumbai. They both meet and fall for each other. What happened next to the rest story of the film.

The best story from the film and the only savior of this film. Rinku Rajguru and Delzad Hiwale were too good in their respective roles. Rinku Rahguru looks very much similar to Sairat’s character still she created magic again with her powerful performance. I liked the story and the execution most. The screenplay was good, the acting was good and the climax was amazing. Abhishek Chaubey the man behind Ishqeya and Udta Punjab prove it again.

Third Story

The third story starts in Mumbai too but the locations are the personalities are changed now. The story begins in the big Hotel room where Tanu and Manav meet as their partner was cheating on them, what happened after that? to know this you have to watch the full movie on Netflix.

The most boring, Brizzarie and the unrealistic story of the film, it story of very poor, it looks like B Grade film story where two people intimate while consoling each other, that scene was awkward and bullshit. Zoya Hussain who was last seen in Mukkebaaz Kunal Kapoor who was last seen in Hotstar’s The Empire were wasted in the series. I am still confused about how can someone writing that silly plot.


I am going with 2 out of 5 stars for the film and that 2 stars are only for the second story by Abhishek Chaubey, If you want to see something good, Go and watch the second story from Netflix Original Ankahi Kahaniya and skip the rest.
