‘Student Of The Year 2’ Movie Review: A huge blunder that will make you bang your head against a wall
Directed By: Punit Malhotra
Produced By: Dharma Productions, Fox Star Studios
Cast: Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria,
Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
Bollywood Bubble Rating: 2/5
With cardboard characters and a convoluted screenplay, ‘Student Of The Year 2′ fails to make any sense at all. Yes, it’s supposed to be a larger than life movie and one isn’t supposed to look for logic. But when lack of logic is accompanied by terrible acting (barring Ananya Panday, everyone is bad), the result is disastrous.
A love triangle, ‘Student Of The Year 2’ starts with Rohan (Tiger Shroff) getting a sports scholarship to study in one of Dehradun’s best colleges St. Teresa. In this college, he jumps, fights, dances and delivers dialogues with a uniform expression. The love of his life, Mia (Tara Sutaria)’s character is as confusing as a Mathematics problem in an RD Sharma book. Love is a loose word according to the makers of this movie and people fall in and out of love like it’s nobody’s business. Unlike its predecessor (where Varun, Sidharth and Alia gelled extremely well), the chemistry between the lead characters lacks spark.
There are more than a few scenes that make you cringe – one of them being the one where Rohan’s friends gatecrash a nightclub party. Even the climax is extremely unfathomable and unfortunately, the whole ‘Student Of The Year’ competition is silly. It’s a sports based tournament with no girls (can you imagine how big a blunder that is?).
As far as the music is concerned (this is India’s tepid answer to ‘High School Musical’ after all), no song fails to make a mark. In fact, there’s a scene where a bunch of boys train for a kabaddi tournament. What is the background music to this scene? ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani‘ . God knows what the makers were thinking and why nobody pointed it out that the song was inappropriate.
If you care about your brain cells, stay away.
