What is it about: The movie revolves around 3 friends Gogo (Kartik Aaryan), Chauka (Sunny Singh) & Thakur (Omkar Kapoor). These 3 young eligible bachelors, fall for the obvious like everyone else which is “LOVE”. Which marks the entry of 3 hot and happening women Chiku (Nushrat Bharucha), Supriya (Sonali Sehgall) & Kusum (Ishita Raj) in their peaceful life. The struggle which these 3 men go in their love life to keep it going smooth forms the crux of the film directed by Luv Ranjan.
Why it’s disappointing: The movie was total fun so there is no room for disappointment.
What to watch out for: This film scores big time on the dialogues which are perfectly timed and written with impeccable delivery by the characters in the movie. It deals with the day to day issues of men who are in jeopardy with their love life. Well can’t just blame the men, but these things happen mostly with men so the argument still continues.
The 6 main characters which the film revolves around have done a great job. Among the men Kartik Aaryan did a fine job, he dished out a great deal which makes everyone applaud, especially a scene where he has a dialogue which goes for minutes and he did it again with great dedication, at the end of the dialogue the cinema hall goes crazy with applause and hoots. His performance is closely followed by Sunny Singh who I can say is the “Liquid” of this sequel, he did a great job and is downright funny. Omkar Kapoor plays the alpha male, and he did a commendable job.
Among the ladies Nushrat scores well, as she had more scope for performance than the other two, and she was seen in the previous movie as well, she is very convincing as her character demands you to hate her. Sonali and Ishita make a good ensemble to the well picked cast.
There were not many songs which were forced down your throat, and the ones featured were perfectly timed and visually appealing. Cinematography was perfect by Sudhir, even though most of the shots were indoor, he had given them a rich outlook. Akiv Ali edited this one short and sweet keeping it engaging throughout.
I can’t pick a favourite scene as there are many, you will find relating yourself to many situations in the movie, as the facts will be laid right in front of you on the silver screen. Director Luv Ranjan, does seem like the one who have a great deal of experience in the field of relationships and that shows in both his movies. The first one was a runaway hit, hopefully even this one gets the same response, as it did not compromise on the content.
Verdict: Luv Ranjan keeps you laughing throughout with no mercy until your stomach hurts. A perfect weekend getaway with your friends at the cinemas, as you’ll love it. Be cautious in taking your girl to this flick, chances are there you might return single, just kidding. A rollicking romantic comedy which happens in almost everyone’s life. Definitely worth a watch.
