Verdict - Bollywood should be banned from making sequels !
The biggest plus of Fukrey is that Richa chadda looks cute as the ichchadhari naagin in the opening scene and there are a few one liners which make you laugh. Largely and very disappointingly Fukrey Returns makes a strong case of Bollywood making shabby sequels. The reason the first one so pleasantly surprised us was the earthiness of the characters and the sincerity of the plot. The story had a very fresh content and even two minute characters like the alcoholic who keeps stealing Laali’s stuff etc were phenomenally creative.
Fukrey two is a sorry sad shadow of a wow first movie. The lack of a well developed screenplay is very evident here and the two leading ladies who had small but very effective roles in the first one are reduced to just be there on the screen kind of roles. Frankly the one dance girl at villain’s den are better roles than what was given to the two girls priya anand and vishakha singh.
Stay away from this one if you are in love with the first Fukrey, trust me this one will make you regret walking into the theatre.
I repeat Desimartini does not allow me a zero star because that is what this lazy arrogant effort deserves ! So don’t be fooled by the half star you see !
