There is a deep-rooted problem with sequels. In more cases than not, they are nothing more than shabbier replicas of the original, made solely to mint money. Who would have thought the second installment of Fukrey would be this mediocre fare! It’s mediocre and painful to sit through, besides being largely unfunny and unconvincing. Let’s call it a bore! So Bore kicks off a year after the first part ends. The badass Bholi Punjaban is back and prison has made her feistier if possible. The boys are whiling their time except one (played by Ali Fazal) who is getting married. Bholi gets to work on getting her 10 crores, for reasons best left to the screen.

The pluses are few and let’s begin by saying Bholi is a charismatic character. She is sturdily written and though there are cliches but Richa Chadha evens it out with her acting chops. She fits Bholi to the tee and the Film rides on her. You suck her out and the plot falls flat. What’s disturbing is that the boys miss the spunk. While the girl packs in the sass, the camaraderie and bromance which was so crucial to the first part are missing. Varun Sharma is repetitive and Manjot is wasted. Together they could have added some genuine magic to the narrative but the director invests on the dull boy instead. Pulkit Samrat is just about passable falling short of the energy that other cast members bring to the table.

Mrigdeep Singh Lamba keeps the comic punches in places for the entire first half, which is why post interval it’s a snooze fest. The climax is contrived and conveniently done. The Gyaan Of the scam of Commonwealth Games is misplaced in the script as the meanders to make a commentary on the wobbly political scenario of the country. He shoots it beautifully though, across the lanes and bylanes Of Delhi, bringing out the real flavour of the city.

It’s Pankaj Tripathi who really shines in the story. He picks up the tempo every time he is onscreen and Man, he is such a delight to watch. Effortlessness is the key to humour and that’s a point to learn for most actors in this country. Some of these guys are just naturals, Varun, Manjot and Richa but Lamba barely uses their potential to the fullest. There are same old jokes, some old expressions and a real lack of novelty in terms of concept.

I have no doubts that there’ll be a third part but let’s take a step back and see if it’s needed at all. If this film is the standard, then a sequel must be avoided. Why would an actor like Ali Fazal be practically left mostly unused? Sequels are unnecessary and when it’s made like this one was, there is real lack of soul.

It wouldn’t matter if you haven’t watched the first part but we recommend you do. It’s a much better film in comparison to this watered-down version that lacks the edginess that made Fukrey cult.

We rate it a 35% on the movie meter.
