Director: Varun V. Sharma

‘Old wine in a new bottle’ is how one can sum up ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ in one phrase. The second a part of the immensely fashionable 2005 movie, ‘Bunty Aur Babli’, starring Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji, is a frothy comedy with its share of light-hearted moments, however it’s basically a rehash of the sooner movie and doesn’t rating excessive on both originality or novelty.

Except for the introduction of the new Bunty (Siddhant Chaturvedi) and Babli (Sharvari Wagh), there may be not a lot newness that this movie gives.

The new duo, who’re engineering college students, are jaded and let down by the system. They are on the prowl and succeed in their form of con video games with ease. Sometimes, sending sex-starved males in a non-public constitution to a non-existing nation named Virgin Republic and at different occasions, giving out the River Ganga on lease to the mayor of the town, the modus operandi stays the identical, solely the conditions change.

Rakesh Trivedi (Saif Ali Khan) and Vimmi Trivedi (Rani Mukherji) are actually settled in home bliss at Fursatganj, UP, the place he works as a ticket collector in the Railways, and she or he is a housewife and mom to Pappi, their son. How the unique twosome chip in to lure the new Bunty and Babli by delving into their minds kinds the crux of this movie.

Some of the conditions provide components of humour, however are principally oft-seen and repetitive. The dialogues are considerably humorous with a compelled try at humour.

The weak writing is what does the movie in, because the characters seem cardboard-thin and unidimensional. The situational comedy too seems trite and fails to evoke laughter. With no thrilling twists or turns in the plot, and even an engrossing climax, the movie fails to ship pleasure in any type.

Saif Ali Khan makes a honest effort. however doesn’t match into Abhishek Bachchan’s sneakers. He lends the character a mode of his personal, however doesn’t match as much as the unique Bunty. He appears extra in place in the Abu Dhabi scenes, the place he poses as Bhullar, a hawala king, reasonably than because the ticket collector in UP.

Rani Mukerji tries onerous along with her inconsistent Punjabi accent, however doesn’t go away half the impression she did in the unique movie and seems excessive.

Siddhant Chaturvedi has a robust display presence and provides chutzpah to his character together with his suave manner. He is a delight to look at. Sharvari Wagh too contributes ably and essays her character confidently and with conviction.

Pankaj Tripathi sleepwalks via his function as there’s a sense of déjà vu seeing him in a UP set-up and in uniform.

Prem Chopra, Brijendra Kale and Asrani, all competent actors, are wasted in small and insignificant roles. The youngster artiste taking part in Rakesh and Vimmi`s son reveals numerous promise and is assured, approach past his age.

The cinematography by Gavemic U Ary is value a point out, and the scenes, are stylishly captured, particularly those in Abu Dhabi. The music, although, lacks lustre. The numbers are disappointing, and regardless of ‘Tatoowaliye’ and Arijit Singh’s ‘Love Ju’ being catchy, they aren’t lyrical and price buzzing.

Overall, ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ falls wanting one`s expectations and looks like a feeble try at recreating the primary movie.
