Yaariyan 2: Plot
Yaariyan 2 which revolves around the bond between three cousins who move to Mumbai from Shimla and face various challenges in their personal and professional lives. Laadli (Divya Khosla Kumar) is a bubbly and cheerful girl who marries Abhay (Yash Dasgupta), a stern and aloof businessman, to please her parents. Shikhar (Meezaan Jafri) is a bike racer who has a troubled relationship with his father and gets banned from racing after an accident. Bajju (Pearl V Puri) is a software engineer who hates his job and falls in love with Shona (Warina Hussain), a model and actress. The film also introduces Ikrooh (Anaswara Rajan), a paraplegic girl who becomes Shikhar’s friend and motivator, and Devi (Priya Prakash Varrier), Abhay’s ex-girlfriend who re-enters his life.
Yaariyan 2: Performances
The film boasts of a star-studded cast, but not all of them deliver convincing performances. Divya Khosla Kumar tries hard to be the lively and lovable Laadli, but her acting skills are not up to the mark. Yash Dasgupta does a decent job as the brooding Abhay, but his chemistry with Divya is lacking. Meezaan Jafri is impressive as the rebellious and passionate Shikhar, and he shares a good rapport with Anaswara Rajan, who plays the role of Ikrooh with grace and dignity. Pearl V Puri is charming as the fun-loving Bajju, but his romance with Warina Hussain is superficial and clichéd. Priya Prakash Varrier has a small role as Devi, but she does not have much scope to showcase her talent.
Yaariyan 2: Analysis
The film is directed by Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru, who have previously made films like Lucky: No Time for Love and Sanam Teri Kasam. They try to recreate the magic of the original film, but fail to capture its essence and spirit. The film suffers from a weak screenplay, which deviates from the main plot and introduces too many subplots that are either predictable or irrelevant. The film also lacks the emotional depth and humor that made the original film so engaging and relatable. The film has some catchy and melodious songs composed by various artists such as Manan Bhardwaj, Khaalif, Rahim Shah and Yo Yo Honey Singh. The film has some beautiful and scenic shots of Mumbai and Shimla, captured by the camera of Ravi Yadav.
However, film relies heavily on songs and montages to show the bond between the cousins, but they do not create enough impact. The film also drags on for too long, with a runtime of 148 minutes.
Yaariyan 2: Verdict
Yaariyan 2 is a disappointing remake of a brilliant film that had a lot of potential. The film fails to do justice to the original story, characters, and themes. The film may appeal to fans of romance and drama, but it does not offer anything new or memorable. The film is a wasted opportunity that could have been much better with a tighter script, better direction, and more authentic performances. However the songs and performances save the film.
