Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 – Movie Review

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 review

Ruhan Randhawa (Kartik Aaryan) is a juvenile crook, yet the powerful Thakur family falls for his amateur black magic scams, especially Reet Thakur (Kiara Advani), the well-protected Heir. Despite being a sequel to a blockbuster success—although self-contained—Anees Bazmee’s ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ (BB2) resists outside influences. Instead, it stands alone… one voodoo doll at a time.

Remind us again, what is it that they say about women and discontent? “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” we all know. In the ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ camp, for writer Aakash Kaushik and director Anees Bazmee, that adage becomes a reality. Yes, we all have our opinions and impressions regarding this sequel, but allow the newest version to speak for itself by separating yourself from memories of Akshay Kumar’s debut film.

This tale begins with a photograph of a sand dune—a clue: Rajasthan—and goes all the way back to when Reet was a tiny girl holding on to her pyaari bhabi Anjulika.

Cut to scene two, the wealthy family leaves their enormous mansion for one of their own has rolled over to the other, darker side of metaphysical existence: Manjulika, the wench. The Thakurs are happy with Manjulika’s imprisonment and abandonment of their old home. But how did Ruhan, a lovely little punk, wind up in this muddle? Reet enters the stage now; she is beautiful and innocent. ‘Bhool Bhulaiyya 2′ has nothing in common with its origins narrative, and it is this secret power that keeps it fascinating.

Bazmee, who is no stranger to the comedy genre; some may even go so far as to call him a maestro, knows all too well that in India, two things dominate our viewers’ content consumption palette—sex and satire. Here, Bazmee dwells on the latter. Elaborating further on what was previously said (about tone and handling uniqueness), ‘BB2’ invests substantially in physical and situational comedies; add clever dialogue and expressionism to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a winner.

For this film, there are no preconceived notions to dispel: if you know you’ve seen it all before. Aaryan may remind Kumar of himself given the level of success that he enjoyed with it back in 2007, however, there’s a constant humming noise while you watch the film that sounds like a broken record: it’s the breadcrumbs of a star.

His signature nod-and-squishy-eyes move was copied (perhaps as a reference to Kumar’s nod; an ode to a senior) by Aaryan. It isn’t the same, but he tries. Let’s deconstruct Kartik Aaryan, the un-star in this film, using Ruhan Chowdhry as our guide. The actor imbibes an everyman candor that glides effortlessly well with his chill-easy demeanor. On set, Kartik Aaryan is there for this movie and gives a personable performance.

Kamran’s chemistry with Kiara Advani, who is a Rajasthani princess and dressed to the nines, fizzles. There’s flirtation and playing around, kissing and dancing, but it all adds up to a distasteful PowerPoint presentation. It feels like two individuals who have only just met before are pretending to be friends.

Others, on the other hand, bring their A-game: for example, Tabu. Tabu’s versatility should be her middle name. If she has it right now, then she’s done a good job with it. In “BB2,” she is at ease—those huge and curly tresses, gajras, overdrawn kohl, and an elegance that can’t be learned.

It’s difficult to comprehend her greatness without being a loudmouth about it at this point. So, we’ll hold our tongues. Hold on a second, stay with me: Tabu’s spirit is characterized by a certain human feeling that is rampant and screams fury.

In addition to that, in order to retain some of the high-selling features of its standalone predecessor, Bazmee reintroduces several old players including Rajpal Yadav as a chhote pandit is a cut above. Following are Bollywood veterans Sanjay Mishra and Rajesh Sharma. Potlu is also portrayed by Siddhant Ghegadmal, a young starlet.

‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2′ is a discombobulated mélange of sadness and grieving, a desi (more gleeful) reply to the old adage that life is, in fact, “the most tragic tragedy” of all—which explores black magic and pushes along with an even more dismal theme: human nature —and it stays for the most part, and the bits that don’t work out, they must be lost in the maze of existence.
