After a long time, JustInReviews is back with a Bollywood movie review. The Fukrey team is back again. This time they come with the sequel of Fukrey i.e. Fukrey Returns. But, does it spin the magic of the first part? Let’s check out…
To see ‘Fukrey Returns’, there is no need as such to have seen the first part, on the grounds that the director unmistakably clarifies the whole story in the starting credits. In any case, it’s a fun film. So is this one. Indeed, some may find it to be more funny than the initial part. That recognizable insanity you’ve found in the characters isn’t simply back; it has multiplied, according to some.
The strength of the film lies in the performances. What’s more, by and by, the stealer as far as acting goes is Varun Sharma as Choocha, the friendly weirdo having superpowers to see bizarre dreams which award him a lottery. In this one, his powers have advanced, however, tragically his brain hasn’t and despite everything, he spells Goa as Goya and still can’t get over the fact that Lali does not love him. The surprise package is the comic act by Pankaj Tripathi as Panditji, the conspiring college watchman. With his tremendous comic timing, he has you in splits in most of the scenes which he is in. Whatever is left of the cast, as well, have portrayed their parts upto the mark . The second half is plot-substantial and gets somewhat extended. In any case, the jokes continue to flow which make it endurable.
With the various characters underwritten and this incorporates the other three companions, the second part misses the mark to cast the magic of the first. In this squeezed ensemble, script writer Vipul Vig alongside Lamba battles to give sufficient screen time and a decent graph to the key cast. Outcome is just Sharma and Pankaj Tripathi, get parts commendable for a showreel. Since the gang heads underground, Fukrey Returns crashes on the story front, totally winding up as unconvincing.
Fukrey Returns ends with a determination of sorts and a blend of song and dance that is similar to another Excel film – Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. It offers one hope that the producers might have got their peace with this world.
So, we leave it to you as to whether you want to watch it or not.
