Mohalla Assi is the comedy film directed by Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi. The film is based on Kashi Ka Assi, a book written by Dr Kashinath Singh. Sunny Deol, Sakshi Tanwar, Ravi Kishan, Mukesh Tiwari, Saurabh Shukla, Mithilesh Chaturvedi, Rajendra Gupta, Seema Azmi, Davinder Singh, Faisal Rashid, Mohit Sinha, Davinder Singh, Naresh Jang, Shrichand Makhija, Vaibhav Mishra and MD Rahman Jony. Vinay Tiwari produced the film. Amod Bhatt composed the music and the cinematography is by Vijay Kumar Arora. Aseem Sinha edited the film.


Kashi is a Sanskrit scholar. He is an Orthodox priest too. He lives in Assi Ghat in Varanasi and doesn’t like the commercialization of the holy city. When he raises his voice against the fake priests, what are the consequences he had to face forms the crux of the story!

Star Performance

Sunny Deol did a decent job. Ravi Kishan didn’t have much to perform. Sakshi had done an excellent job than the rest of the cast.


Although the film has a different concept, it has nothing much offensive and the reason why the film had a delayed release is unknown. The characterization is not much impressive. Ravi Kishan should have been given a better role with more performance tasks. Yet, Sakshi’s role is okayish and she had done what is needed for her role. In fact, she had to emote to various situations and had an excellent time to prove her worth.

What’s There?

  • Sakshi’s performance is good

What’s Not There?

  • The screenplay is not much impressive
  • Characterization should have been better
  • The film focuses only on the negativities of touring the pilgrim city


With the talented stars, one expects that the film might have got a gripped screenplay with good performance. Although there are a couple of good performances, especially, Sakshi, the film doesn’t have any attractive element. If you want to know what is in the film and why it was delayed, you could watch it!
