Story: Anshul a.k.a Gogo, Tarun a.k.a Thakur and Siddharth a.k.a Chauka live together in an apartment, and all they seek is true love. But when they finally get a girl, their world turns upside down! What follows throughout the movie is how they tolerate their girlfriends and their melodrama, while trying to concentrate on their professional life.
Performances: Kartik Aryan is back in form! From charming his lady and mouthing heroic dialogues to acting frustrated and delivering yet another hilarious monologue, he does it all once again. He comes across as an even more confident actor this time.
Sunny Singh and Omkar Kapoor are undoubtedly the surprise package of the movie! Both of them deliver natural and matured performances, making them the best debutantes of the year.
Even though Omkar has faced the camera before in his childhood days, it’s amazing to see him act with such confidence and brilliant screen presence.
On the other hand, Sunny Singh is a complete delight to watch! He is funny, charming and will leave you in splits with his expressions and dialogue delivery.
They do not let you miss the irreplaceable Liquid and Chaudhary from the first installment!
The gorgeous ladies, Nushrat Bharucha, Ishita Raj and Sonalli Seygall, once again play the ones who cause all the problems. All the three of them have been given roles completely different from what they played in the first installment, and prove their mettle once again! You'd fall in love with them, laugh with them and by the end of the movie, you would hate them...once again!
Sharat Saxena has done a wonderful job.
Luv Ranjan surely knows how to make his audience laugh. He follows the same pattern and sequence which was used in the first installment to make sure that this one too strikes a chord amongst the men who are frustrated with relationships!
He maintains a balance between all the three story lines. Kudos to him for making it a rather matured one than the previous one.
However, the only place where he fails is showing the bromance between the boys (which was a major USP of ‘PKP’), as there are very few scenes of the three of them hanging out together and having the genuine boy-to-boy talks.
Also, the first installment was made with a very limited budget, and that is what made that movie a simple one. With ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2’, that charm of simplicity gets lost amidst colorful and lavish sets, songs and costumes.
Nevertheless, the movie does not fail to entertain and tickle your funny bones, and Luv makes it worth watching and enjoying with your friends.
Combo-On-Offer: Comedy + Drama
Verdict: We give the movie CLAPS for being a matured yet hilarious one, and for letting the magic continue.
