Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 – No Spoiler Review

Posted on

Filmmaker Priyadarshan created the film ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa in 2007, there was a lot of doubt about whether he was taking a huge risk. In the end, it was just a remake of a film like ‘Manichitrathazhu’, which had been awarded and was well-received by both the public and critics alike. The Hindi film did succeed mainly due to its performances, its plot and its believable music. It’s been more than a decade since the sequel “Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2′ an incredible error the director Anees Bazmee shouldn’t have made.

The reason why I am saying this is that we can’t hold ourselves from comparing this movie with the original one.

While there’s not much common between this sequel and 2009 the original film, besides Manjulika, the background score and song Ami Je Tomar, and these will continually remind you of the original 2009 film, and you’ll find yourself making comparisons.


Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Plot

The Story of this movie has been written by Akash Kaushik and it’s quite unrelatable, the reason why I am saying you can understand clearly after reading the plot.

Reet who is a medical student, is able to meet a wealthy brat Ruhaan in Manali. Reet is heading back home to her family within Rajasthan and Ruhaan well is professionally an explorer who travels the states to sample the local cuisine (yeah Ruhaan has a lot of time and money unlike the majority of Indian people). Both of them travel on the same bus to Manali which is headed towards Chandigarh. At a stop-off, Ruhaan convinces Reet to go to a local festival with him prior to when she goes home to be married. They leave the bus, which ends up in an accident, and leaves no survivors.

Reet calls at home to inform the family that she’s fine, however, due to a poor network, nobody can listen to her message. In the meantime, she discovers it’s her cousin that is engaged to her fiance and Reet creates a plan to act like she’s dead until everyone has gotten past the trauma of her passing and her cousin is married. If you think the plot was a bit absurd, you’ll find more.

Reet decides to stay in the family’s ancestral home which was locked for years because it is thought to have been haunted by the ghost of Manjulika. The shrewd Ruhaan is part of the plan. When the gates to the old Haveli open and the entire building is illuminated Reet’s family calls and is met by Ruhaan who claims to be able to communicate with dead people and that it was Reet’s last wish to see the cousin she loves to marry. Although the family is happy with the presence of Reet’s spirit mysterious things continue to happen within the haveli, which they believe are related to Manjulikawho’s spirit has been kept in one area of the house. Could Ruhaan or Reet be able to find solutions to the strange things occurring inside the home? Then, does Reet’s family discover that she’s not actually dead is the main point of this bizarre tale?

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Cast and their Performance 

It’s not fair to make comparisons between Kartik Aaryan in comparison to Akshay Kumar, though the young actor has often been compared to the renowned actor. We’ve witnessed Aaryan performing great comedic roles mostly because the films he appeared in were well-written. In “Bhool Bhulaiya 2,” the pressure of making a sequel to success is a major concern throughout the film and Aaryan is not able to salvage a poorly written character. The charisma required for the role of Ruhan is not present in the screenplay, and Aaryan does not make a mark above the rest of the film.

Kiara Advani’s character might be the most unreal character to be in the Bollywood movies lately. The character is meant to be a medical doctor, but her bizarre plan to have their sister marry the man who is her love is so ridiculous that one has to wonder what kind of modern Indian woman is she.

Tabu is a key character in the film and revealing too much information about her character could reveal plot details (if you want to see the movie). The actress does her role well- in actual fact, she is the only one that is strong in a film that is crumbling.

Actors such as Rajpal Yadav, Sanjay Mishra and Ashwini Kalsekar have no place in roles designed to bring laughter, but instead, they have created more cringe moments.


Final Verdict

After seeing this movie I am completely sure that this movie was meant to be an average commercial movie. This movie is only in the mainstream media because of part one.

So, ya if you are planning to watch this movie you can go with no hopes. The movie has some comedy scenes which will make you laugh and also have some scenes that completely make no sense. You can go to watch it or you can watch Dhakkad.
