So, the film begins with three guys who swear by the literal understanding of bachelorhood; they’d run here and there in a messy, absolutely messy flat and desire women, just women. Apparently they’re love-thirsty and eventually meet women they fall in love with. But well, they all discover their girls to be cynical, panicky and/or dishonest (thanks to the super stereotypical portrayal of women) and finally split. Need a one-liner? Read it as the repetition of Pyaar ka Punchnama Part-I you watched 4 years ago.
Despite the unbaked and incomplete ideation, the first part of the film was fresh and enjoyable. We believe a lot of you could relate (if you know what we mean), and we liked how the affectionate bond of friendship between three men flowed smoothly, unaffected by outer factors. But well, if it’s a new film, you expect at least a little new. This is where the sequel fails us completely.
The film follows the same “oh-god-such-a-poor-boy’ storyline where women are the greatest trouble makers in all relationships; & this time it’s not even funny. We don’t know what’s up with all the beeped slangs; they’re so irritating that at times you yourself feel like supplying them with the words. Moreover, they sound absolutely forced this time. All the girls are shopaholics and crazy clubbers; to more of our irritation, on their boyfriends’ pockets. The pain doesn’t end there. You bear up with three more-or-less hypocrite, possessive, unfairly stubborn girlfriends for over two hours; typecast at its best. We wonder what Jadoo from Koi Mil Gaya would think of women of this planet if he was made to watch this film!
There’s nothing great about the technical aspects. Songs are mostly unimpressive. We don’t know what were Sonnalli Seygall and Ishita Raj doing in the name of acting. Omkar Kapoor and Sunny Singh are just OK, you can still call Kartik Aaryan fair enough.
We could rate it only because of few effectively used punch lines and the nice Thailand-Bangkok locations. Here’s our opinion. If you’ve watched the previous part, watching this can cause you severe boredom and don’t blame us if you regret spending your money on it. Apart from that, once more, it’s flat and unfunny. However, if there’s nothing to do this weekend and you never run short of funds, go check out.
