Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, directed by Anees Bazmee, is a spiritual successor to the superhit film Bhool Bhulaiyaa starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. Unlike its predecessor, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 does not turn into a psychological thriller in the end. The director was stern about his stance that he wanted the film to keep an entertaining and exciting horror-comedy approach throughout the movie.
Guess What? Aneez Bazmee was fantastic with his decision as the movie is a complete mass entertainer with great comedic timings and dialogues. It won’t be wrong to call this film the best ever horror-comedy made in India. Many people were sceptical of Kartik Aryan, Kiara Advani and Tabu replacing the original cast of the first part.
Kartik received unnecessary hate on Twitter and other social media platforms, but after his magnificent performance in the film, it is totally clear why he was chosen to play the lead of the film. Kiara Advani is, as usual, fantastic and does complete justice to her role. However, the one who reigns supreme above all others and brings joy and refreshment on the screen is none other than the veteran actress Tabu.
Tabu has stolen the show with her impeccable and flawless comedic timing, a role in which she has not yet been seen since the start of her career in Bollywood. She grabs the opportunity presented to her with both hands and once again proves why she is one of the best actresses in the B-town.
The story of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 follows a crook named Ruhan Randhawa (Kartik Aryan), who cons people by posing as a Tantrik with godly powers. He meets Reet Thakur (Kiara Advani), who is a scion of the wealthy Thakur family. Reet is soon captured into the trap laid by Ruhan, but things get complicated when he gets to know about the presence of Manjulika in Thakur’s mansion.
Tabu portrays Reet’s aunt with excellence, and Rajpal Yadav reprises his role from the first film as Chote Pandit. Rajpal is again flawless with his comedic expressions, self-deprecating humour and physical comedy. The veteran genius Sanjay Mishra is equally as good as Rajpal Yadav in the film. The two bring that flavour of relief and calmness into the pace of the movie.
Kartik Aryan does not disappoint his fans as his witty remarks take the film one notch higher. Reet Thakur is not something which we have not seen as a character in a film, but Kiara has managed to give that personality her own flavour in the film. Overall it’s worth getting a workday off to visit the theatres for the movie.
