The con is back!
If you are looking for something that does not make any sense- go for Bunty Aur Babli 2. Completely directionless, and without any purpose- the FILAM is an absolute disaster.
The movie fails to give you any goosebumps, laughter attacks, and emotional catastrophe- even though it tries a lot. The script, the plot, music, acting, not even Rani’s costumes- nothing will go out of the theater with you. You watch it and dump it- then and there. I absolutely disliked the way the children are portrayed in the FILAM.
The most annoying part of Bunty Aur Babli 2 comes in the very beginning itself, with the song Dhikchik Dhikchik! And you know it- the movie is going to be a pain in the back side. Even if we do not remember Bunty Aur Babli (original), at least the song Kajra re has stayed with us till now. Part two has nothing to offer. Not even a good song!
Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Sharvari Wagh (I found her promising), Pankaj Tripathi– none could uplift the screenplay. There are many loopholes in the storyline. The FILAM does not convey anything worthwhile. Yash Raj has just put it together, because the house must have had a lot of money to waste.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 could have made an OTT release only. Yash Raj Films also needs to come out of their obsession of Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan. Breaking the monotony might help them coming up with something fresh.
It’s a one time watch, especially for those who believe Yash Raj is a factory of amazing Cinema. For me this conception came to an end after Dil Toh Pagal Hai. I absolutely disagree with big production houses for making everything into a LARGER than life experience. Audience does not want it anymore.
