Sequels are made to break expectations. They are either forcefully stressed-out versions of their originals or unlikely and untimely falsifications of a new idea that doesn’t necessarily entertain. Bheja Fry 2, the sequel to Bheja Fry doesn’t oppose the point; rather it makes it more rational that ‘sequel’ and ‘disappointment’ are friends made for each other. To put it otherwise, old was always gold. It is and it will be so.
The whole story matures around two relative cousins - confusion and mis-understanding. Our cool, outgoing, outthinking and deshi nerd Bharat Bhushan (Vinay Pathak) lands on a cruise after winning a TV game show. The producer of the game show Kapoor (Rahul Vohra) also invites his close friend and a rich businessman, Ajit Talwar (Kay Kay Menon) to the cruise. Coming there, Ajit comes to know about a looming income-tax raid on his premises. He mistakes Bhushan as the officer who’s in charge of the tax raid when the actual officer is M.T. Shekharan (Suresh Menon).
Since Talwar opines Bhushan is the officer, he installs secret cameras in Bhushan’s room so that he can get minute by minute real time update of Bhusan’s activities. Soon it turns out Bhushan has feelings for Ranjini (Minissha Lamba). On the other hand, Talwar, who’s married, also for the same lady.
Following some shocks and surprises, Ajit Talwar makes it sure his ways should be separated from Bhushan. He plots to throw Bhushan into the sea, with a life jacket of course. But sadly, before Bhushan, he himself falls into the trouble water. Both wake up on an island. They come to know each other better. The rest of the story proceeds with their adventures and misadventures.
The screenplay fails to make a fair impact. The dialogues are mis-fitted in many scenes. There are good laughs, but very often, the laughs are forcefully included. The second part is comparatively more boring than the first part with relatively more boring dialogues and sequences. Coming to performances, this is perhaps the only good thing Bheja Fry 2 has come up with. Vinay Pathak is excellent with his usual witty but thoughtful image. Menon does a natural role. Minissha Lamba has less space to share, but she justifies her short presence. Others are okay. The direction could have been far better, editing and music are on the ‘not bad’ note. On the whole, Bheja Fry 2 is tasteless compared to its original.
