“The characters casually misrepresent facts for no apparent reason, are misinformed and take silly decisions even by horror film standards. The supernatural phenomenon is equally random, and gradually moves from creepy to unintentionally funny.” Pune Mirror

“It is neither very strong technically (although the sound department has done a good job). But Kanika makes a point; a strong one at that. For the effort, the team deserves kudos. Having said this, technical finesse and a crisper narrative would’ve worked wonders for Kanika.” Times of India


Kanika was released in India on 31st March 2017. It was released internationally via Netflix. The Dank version is available via Amazon Prime.
