Dream Girl 2 movie review: Ayushmann Khurrana dresses and messes

By (Vegamovies Reviews)

Ayushmann Khurrana is going through a rough patch. Before the pandemic, he was a one-man show, and his stock has plummeted in recent years. Gulabo Sitabo (2020), despite its charm, went straight to digital and remains woefully underappreciated. His’social message’ films aren’t doing as well as they used to, as evidenced by Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, Anek, and Doctor G.

Meanwhile, An Action Hero (2022), a slick and sophisticated outing, was perhaps too clever for its own good. Its failure appears to have put Khurrana in a difficult position. He is aware that Indian audiences have become more impatient, seeking familiar comforts and escapes. It’s why he’s releasing a sequel to Dream Girl(2019), one of his most shrill and commercially successful films.

Dream Girl 2 is both a sequel and a reboot, directed and co-written by Raaj Shaandilyaa, who also directed the first film. The setting, the characters, the jokes… everything is the same but amplified to ninety. Karam (Khurrana) is a lithesome Mathura boy with a talent for impersonation once more. He is once again living with his indebted father (Annu Kapoor).

This time, Karam is in love with Pari (Ananya Panday), but he needs to improve his fortunes quickly in order to win her hand in marriage. Once again, he transforms into ‘Pooja,’ going beyond a kittenish voice on the phone to impersonating her in person. Shaandilyaa handles cross-gender comedy with delicacy once more; the camera drools over Karam’s sashaying midriff, and there’s a running gag about the two oranges he stuffs in his bra.

Karam as Pooja works as a bar dancer, then as a psychiatrist (? ), on the advice of his best friend Smiley (Manjot Singh). He marries a depressed young man named Shahrukh (Abhishek Banerjee) before we know it. The setting shifts to a wealthy Muslim family in Agra, with multiple subplots and hidden-identity romances. It becomes too complicated for words, more of a comedy of errors than a comedy of errors.

Shaandilyaa, despite his TV writing credentials, is incapable of orchestrating chaos in a coherent manner. He lacks the zest and feel of a Priyadarshan film; indeed, it is disappointing to see Priyadarshan actors like Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, and Manoj Joshi struggle to lift this film.

Dream Girl 2 occasionally outshines Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 in silliness and unoriginality as a franchise comedy. The majority of the jokes are lifted from the first film, including Annu Kapoor’s Muslim travesties and Karam seducing unsuspecting men on the phone. The few jokes that do land are usually about a character’s age, body type, or mental health. A disclaimer early on stating that the creators hold the LGBTQIA+ community in “high regard” made me shudder. Dream Girl 2 turns out to be offensive to no particular identity group. Rather, its adversaries are logic, good taste, and comedic artistry. Read More:Jailer box office collection day 15: Rajinikanth’s action film grosses 298.75 crore in India.

Shaandilyaa also doesn’t seem to be able to shake his TV roots: there are references to Kapil Sharma, Roadies, and Kasautii Zindagi Kay in the dialogue. Dream Girl 2, like its predecessor, is the type of film that might appeal to a television audience. The film occasionally refers to current events, such as COVID, demonetisation, and the Sri Lankan economic crisis. We’re supposed to laugh at these references on cue, no matter how serious they are. Meanwhile, an inter-religious wedding that takes place in Uttar Pradesh without incident or protest is dismissed as routine.

There is a noticeable amount of queerbaiting in the Smiley-Karam track (which is also present in the first film). Khurrana performs the cross-dressing, chest-heaving, and eyelash-fluttering with glee. He has to juggle even more personalities in the new film, and he’s less convincing as angry, butch Karam than he is as Pooja.

The actor believes so strongly in his own brand of cinema that he turns the farcical climax into an extended monologue on the healing effects of love and acceptance. Panday, donning a Mathura accent, and we both look perplexed. Dream Girl 2’s experience is far from oneiric, lasting over two hours. It’s frequently a nightmare.
