Recommended, go for it!
Not for Family viewing…..:(
Luv Ranjan also needs to be applauded for having written funny dialogues. The lingo that has been used in the film is straight out of real life, laced with some crackling and witty one-liners.
There is a saying that the first time, a new joke would work fine, but the second time around, it can only elicit forced chuckles if you don’t bring anything new. PKP2 is not a terrible sequel per se, in fact, it is enjoyable especially if you haven’t seen the first film. But if you have, you can easily guess where it’s all going. Nonetheless, you can still have a few laughs. Just a warning for the guys, don’t take your wife or girlfriend to the movie. If you laugh at any of the jokes, rest assured you will be sleeping on the couch tonight!
The film’s music (Hitesh Sonik, Sharib Sabri, Toshi Sabri) is strictly average. None of the songs stay with you. The film’s background music (Hitesh Sonik) keeps the audiences hooked to the film. The film’s cinematography (Sudhir K. Chaudhary) is decent, the film’s editing (Akiv Ali, Ajay Sharma) is crisp.
On the whole PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA 2 packs a solid punch with its unusual, yet relevant storyline. It is a film for youngsters who may patronize it in a big way.
As far as the performances in the film are concerned, the lead actors and actresses seem extremely confident and are camera friendly which is one of the strong assets of the film. But, it is the child-actor-turned-hero Omkar Kapoor who comes across as a winner. He is a charmer on screen and quite a decent actor. The strip tease scene between him and Ishita will surely grab eyeballs. On the other hand, Sunny Singh is a natural actor and is thoroughly entertaining. While the film’s director wanted him to have a Divyendu hangover (a la PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA), yet Sunny brings his own unique charm to the film. Kartik Aaryan is decent. His 8 minute insightful outburst [monologue] is clap worthy and will be greeted with seetis and taalis. Amongst the girls, it is the lovely Ishita Raj, who put forth genuine performance. Sonalli Sehgall looks bold and beautiful and will charm the audiences. Nushrat Bharucha has worked hard on her funny character but many a times, especially in the second half, she ends up hamming a lot. The rest of the actors help in the film moving forward.
