Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Review – Story
Ruhan Randhawa (Kartik Aaryan) is a baby-faced thief, but the mighty Thakur clan, notably the well-sheltered scion Reet Thakur, falls for his novice black-magic tricks (Kiara Advani). ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ (BB2), while being the sequel to a blockbuster hit—and despite being independent—does not cave to external constraints. It instead stands alone… one voodoo doll at a time.
Director: Anees Bazmee
What’s Good: It makes you laugh at stuff you never would have expected to laugh at!
What’s Bad: It also tries to forcefully scare you as well, which needed some more polish
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Review: Script Analysis
Bhool Bhulaiyaa, which was released almost a decade ago, has a special place in many people’s hearts. Everything about it is memorable: the terror element, the music, the comic relief. So, ever since the sequel was revealed, Bollywood fans have been buzzing. However, a significant portion of the audience believed that replacing Akshay Kumar in the lead role with Kartik Aaryan will destroy the picture and lead to it becoming yet another troll film.
It follows the standard cliches of ‘pulling your legs when sleeping,’ ‘backward feet,’ and so on, but they’re cleverly balanced with ridiculous one-liners and wacky humour. The comedy is as ridiculous as they are in many other Bazmee films, but they work here because of the characters’ eccentricities. Manu Anand uses a hazy approach to horror moments, which works to his advantage to some extent.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Movie Review: Star Performance
Wow, Kartik Aaryan! He walks such a tightrope that he manages to make us forget about Akshay Kumar’s great performance and start over. Despite the fact that his Ruhan is an entirely different character, there are shades of ‘Adi’ in him, and that’s where he shines the greatest. No, not because his touch on the character is any less personal, but because he thrives under the burden of comparison, providing pure entertainment.
Tabu enters with her customary grace * 100 formula, which the script cleverly exploits, almost hitting the spell generated by Vidya Balan in the original. There’s no comparison because we all know the original is untouchable, but it’s also dishonest to discount the storyboard’s genuine efforts. Kiara Advani is the poorest of the bunch, not because of her acting, but because her character doesn’t enable her to do much exploring. She gets more than her fair share of ‘Manjulika,’ but it’s too late.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Box Office Review: Impact
BB 2 has started off well, with morning shows averaging 30-35 percent average occupancy around the country, as expected. There were roughly 35-40 people in the theatre where I saw the movie around 8.30 a.m. The situation is similar across India’s major circuits, and the film is about to receive a lift from positive word-of-mouth, as it is an engaging package that provides clean entertainment for the entire family.
It’s the type of movie that will improve over the weekend and not sag after a strong start. The content is ideal for A and B centers, and the youth+family audience mix will be quite successful. Despite having outstanding material, Runway 34 failed due to its highly specialized urban atmosphere. BB 2 isn’t like that, yet it won’t appeal to many people in the interiors.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Movie Review: Direction, Music
By making this sequel as enjoyable as the first, Anees Bazmee has managed to get the chicken out of a tiger’s mouth. It promised to be a nightmare, and it includes both elements with only a few misses. It manages to keep you entertained while still accomplishing its goal.
