David Dhawan directed 'Judwaa 2' serves justice when it comes to entertaining the audience. Comparing the previous 1997 'Judwaa' would be unfair as it can only bring nostalgic memories from the past. This analogy finally becomes real as Salman Khan walks down the climax along with his double role and grooves on 'Chalti Hai Kya 9 Se 12' track with modern Judwaa twins Prem and Raj. Varun Dhawan acted the two different characters supremely with a mettle of whistleblowing moments through his entry in a local lad style. Yes, we are talking about Raj, the fearless 'tapori' guy born and brought up in Mumbai. However, Raj is extremely opposite. A shy introvert geek who is a gentle speaking music student residing along with his parents in London. Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu are surely the two queens of the film. Adding gracefulness, glamour and pretty eye catchy elements to the film. Both the actresses were a joy to watch on-screen. The film delivers loud laughing moments with the presence of comic characters Rajpal Yadav (a guy who fumbles while speaking), Johnny Lever (funny passport agent), Anupam Kher (Alishka's father) and Ali Azgar (Prem's Psychiatrist named Dr. Lulla).
Well, if you seriously looking forward for some pure comedy than this film is surely for you. Watching it with family would be a great idea this weekend, but just a warning don't stress your mind on what's happening as its thin unconvincing plot is not at all a topic to discuss. It's the same old cliche 'Judwaa' story with brand new set of funny moments. The first half is way funnier but the second half actually looks like David Dhawan is in a hurry to wrap things up.
The songs are again the plus point of the film recreating the two magical soundtracks 'Chalti Hai Kya 9 Se 12' and 'Oonchi Hai Building 2.0.' crooned by Dev Negi and Neha Kakkar with the composition of Sandeep Shirodkar. 'Chalti Hai Kya 9 Se 12' features the notorious Varun Dhawan dancing along with the beauties Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez. Taapsee is seen dancing along with Varun in an unreal set of prison. Whereas Jacqueline is grooving with her hero on a stage mesmerized with a lot of spectators. While 'Oonchi Hai Building 2.0.' is a reprise version of the song sung by Anu Malik and Neha Kakkar featuring the Judwaas with their respective partners swinging in a sexy and playful avatar that leaves you fascinated. Whereas, 'Suno Ganpati Bappa Morya' is right there at the beginning of the film introducing the character of Raj who is dancing alongside a sculpture of its dearest lord Ganesha. Sung with the magical voice of Amit Mishra, this soundtrack will make your feet move to its tune raising a spirit of joy. Last but not the least is the glamorous beach song 'Aa Toh Sahi' performed by Roach Killa, Neha Kakkar and Meet Bros starring Judwaas dancing with each other's bride on a fresh beach.
The screenplay from Yunus Sajawal is quite fresh but declining at the end as the audience wonders what's happening at the end. Director of Photography by Ayananka Bose deserves applauds for filming the slow-motion entry moments that just had whistleblowing moments to cheer for. The rest of the scenes from the film exploring the exotic locations of London are captured splendidly well. Overall, this David Dhavan film is a worth watch if you aren't finding loopholes as what's happening.
