The film begins with Bhavanigarh’s haveli in Rajasthan, where the spirit of Manjulika creates turmoil. But Baba, with the help of mantra-tantra, locks it in a room in the mansion itself and instructs the whole Thakur family never to open it. Then the whole family left the mansion and left. But after 18 years in the same haunted mansion, there is a return of Reet Thakur, who is the daughter of this house. Ritt believes there are no ghosts and Manjulika’s stories are lies. She wants to stay there for a few days, hiding from family members for some reason. Ruhaan helps him with that. But as soon as the Thakur family receives the news that someone has entered the haveles, the whole family returns. When it becomes difficult for Rit to hide from her family members … she decides to hide in the same room that was locked 18 years ago with mantra-tantra. Manjulika’s spirit is released as soon as the door to the room opens. And the ghostly events begin again. In such a situation, how will Rit and Ruhan manage to save themselves and the whole family from Manjulika … That makes the whole story.
The audience placed heavy responsibility on Kartik Aryan, making constant comparisons with Akshay Kumar. But the actor put all comparisons aside and played the protagonist in his own style and did justice. A comedy scene or horror … Kartik won hearts with his expressions. Kiara is good in character. But they didn’t give him anything different from his other films. At the same time, Taboo’s character can be a surprise package for fans. There is a twist in his character that he plays with great ease. Rajpal Yadav, Amar Upadhyay, Sanjay Mishra, Milind Gunnaji, Rajesh Sharma and others. have done a good job in supporting roles. Children’s artist Siddhant Gegdamal also left his mark as Potlu.
Anees Bazmee is known for his unique approach to comedy films. So even in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 the comedy part seems to be slightly increased compared to the horror. What is special about the director is that he gave him his own adaptation, unlike the original film (Bhool Bhulaiyaa). But then why two songs were borrowed from this movie … is incomprehensible. The way “Aami Je Tomar” was included in Bhool Bhulaiyaa, the song became a hallmark of the film. But here it is in vain. However, the film begins in a very strong way, but until it reaches its climax, the story begins to deviate from the track. There is no doubt that there are many shortcomings in history, but the star cast compensates for them.
The dialogues of the film were written by Farhad Samji and Akash Kaushik, who are good. However, in the name of comedy, I don’t know when the mockery of childhood obesity in movies will stop. Manu Anand’s cinematography is good and sets the tone for the story. He captures the beauty and magic of havels best in his camera. At the same time, the installation of Bunty Nagy is praised.
The music of the film is given by Pritam, which is average. There are a total of four songs in the film, two of which are taken from old films. Not only the composition, but also the way the song was embedded in the story was also distracting. It can be said that the songs work to increase the length of the film.
I see or I don’t see
This film, which came as a sequel to the 2007 film ‘Bhool Bhalaiya’, is trying to capture the same episode in a new way … and that’s probably the best thing about the film. If you are a fan of Karthik Aryan, then definitely watch this movie in the theater. 3 stars for “Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2” from Filmibeat.
