Fukrey Returns - Movie Review

Verdict - "A Disappointing Sequel!"

Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani from Excel Entertainment, Fukrey Returns is the sequel to the 2013 sleeper-hit Fukrey and the storyline continues one year after the events of the prequel. 

After getting released from the prison after a year under a clause, Bholi (Richa Chadda) teams up again with the Fukrey gang for another burglary that later propels to further confusions for the whole crew.

Now, there's a reason why I didn't discuss the plot all that much in the above paragraph. As a matter of fact, I didn't understand or remember the film's storyline effectively because of it's clumsy approach. Writers Vipul Vig and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba took a mediocre story turned and twisted into something stale and assembled a movie that I'm bored after watching. 

Apart from the negatives, the performances from the complete cast were noteworthy. Varun Sharma and Pankaj Tripathi had the best laugh-out-loud moments in the entire movie and once again stole the show. And I appreciate the writer-director for at least knocking the ball out of the park when it comes to comedy which was overall enjoyable.

Nevertheless, I'm utterly disappointed with Fukrey Returns considering the fact that I enjoyed the first film thoroughly. The comedic sequences were hilarious filled with stellar performances, but, the dreadful storyline and the screenplay bothered me deeply which affected the overall expectations I had for the sequel.

My Rating - 2/5 | Grade - C (Meh! Probably a Rental!)
