Sunflower Season 2, the sequel to the ZEE5 original series, promises to deliver a quirky murder mystery with a dash of comedy. However, the show falls short of its expectations and ends up being a dull and disjointed affair.

   

The plot revolves around the Sunflower Housing Society, where a new murder takes place, implicating the innocent but eccentric Sonu Singh (Sunil Grover) as the prime suspect. Sonu, who is already under investigation for the previous murder of Mr. Kapoor, tries to prove his innocence while dealing with the chaos and confusion of his neighbours. He also crosses paths with Rosie (Adah Sharma), a seductive and mysterious woman who has a hidden agenda of her own.

The show tries to balance the genres of crime and comedy, but fails to do either well. The crime aspect is weak and predictable, with no real suspense or twists. The comedy aspect is forced and unfunny, relying on cheap jokes and clichés. The characters are caricatures, with no depth or development. The dialogues are bland and repetitive, with no wit or charm.

The only saving grace of the show is the performance of Sunil Grover, who manages to infuse some life and humour into his role of Sonu. He is the only one who seems to enjoy his part and makes the audience root for him. Adah Sharma also does a decent job of playing Rosie, but her character is underwritten and underutilized. The rest of the cast, including Ranvir Shorey and Girish Kulkarni as the cops, are wasted in their roles and look bored and disinterested.

Sunflower Season 2 is a disappointing sequel that fails to live up to the potential of its premise. It is neither thrilling nor hilarious, but rather a tedious and forgettable watch. It is a show that withers away before it can bloom.
