Well looks like many newborn Varun Dhawan fans have not bothered to watch the movie or atleast not bothered to write about it, let me do the honours, now obviously i wasn't going to watch it but yesterday was 1st October and i had to spend my time somewhere along with my friends so i decided to give it a go..!!
Now 2 things, first, Judwaa 2 is a silly movie, it has silly characters doing silly things coupled with total lack of logic and sense, and 2nd thing - it's not as bad as i thought, atleast it's better then varun's earlier cringe fest BKD, infact much better..!!
Judwaa 2 can be called as comedy movie as it's makers claim it to be, and the comedy part of it is based on silliness of situations and goofiness of characters, and also that first movie's situations were funny enough that a scene to scene remake was bound to work, had David Dhawan tried to do anything other then scene to scene remake then it might have faltered, so sometimes cut, copy, paste technique works, but the problem with this sillyness is that while some of it works as it's a staple of comedy movies, some of it goes overboard and makes you ask..........Really..??
Performance wise Varun is noway near to Salman (surprise, surprise) but again better then BKD (no surprise) but as i said, more then acting, dialogues, it's the scenes & situations that makes people laugh, in fact only actor whose dialogues managed to make people laugh in theatre was Rajpal Yadav who i must say was good choice to replace shakti kapoor's character, atleast from what choices were available, but you can say that cast from main lead to supporting were mostly much lower then original which isn't really a surprise..!!
While songs are nothing to say about much, best of lot is Oonchi hai building, because it was original version and i wish they should've used original version of Tan Tan Tara too
Salman's cameo was out of place and was wierd seeing him in his TZH look, should've been bit closer to original but i guess timing issues
So Judwaa 2 is a passable comedy movie which doesn't goes to touch it's original in terms of Content, performances & comedy but still was good enough to convince 2 girls walking after the show that it was better then original (no seriously, they said that), but it is decent way to pass 2.5 hours in theatre if you have nothing to do in time of holiday, and while it is doing excellent in holidays, i doubt it'll do much after holiday period is over but it has already done enough in 4 days period..!!
Rating - 5/10
(Temporary - might increase or decrease after some while)
Verdict - How the hell was there no outrage over ganpati song, imagine a Khan movie having that song..??
