Well David Dhawan was the king of comedy two decades back. There’s no denying to that. However there is a time and period for the quality and relevance of a joke. A joke of certain type which worked 20 years has very less chances to work. Moreover humor always needs to be fresh and innovative. In real lives, we cant even laugh for a repeated joke. Imagine a film that is remade after 20 years which is based on comedy. David Dhawan makes the sequel a sucker big time.

David’s first with his son was Main Tera Hero which was comical enough and he seemed to be in control of his strength. In the second project, he is over confident and assumes to provide entertainment with really lame humour.

Raja and Prem played by Varun Dhawan are twins who get separated when they are babies. Raja is born among the masses whereas Prem is brought up in a sophisticated environment. Raja turns out to be the hero types with six pack and Prem turns out to be suave and susheel. Enter their respective girlfriends, Jacqueline Fernandez and Tapsee Pannu, who dance with then around trees. All the four toned bodies while having fun end up Meeting each other. Later they twins come to know about the villain who is in vengeance mode and thwart him.

Judwaa might have worked during its time owing to its time and the magic of the team that time. Whether its Salman or David in full form, or Karishmas exuberance or Anu Maliks foot tapping tunes. But in 2017, trying to forcibly feed the same stuff is just not worth it. The sequel is desparate and gets artificial. Varun Dhawan is usually good in such roles, but he somehow couldn’t crack this one. His look, his punch lines, his six pack showoff , everything gets on to the nerves this time.

The leading ladies were totally out of the place. Jacqueline surprisingly peformed better than Tapsee Pannu. Jacqueline seems to be comfortable after playing similar dumb characters before. Tapsee seemed to have got very disoriented in this role. On one side she procliamed of doing very meaningful roles and this one says otherwise. On other hand, Tapsee is not new into this zone. In fact she has acted earlier in David Dhawans direction in Chashme Baddoor doing exercises in skimpy shorts. All in all, junior dhawan and ladies pull down the show too. To add more agony to the viewer, we have Rajpal Yadav who is given a very cliched role. He doesn’t even succeed even once in making laugh.

Coming to the music, its the only factor which helps the audience to not run away from the theatre. Every song in the original as a chartbuster. The sequel tries to revamp them and somehow managed to entertain.

The biggest drawback than the ones already listed is the dialogue writing. That has done a lot of damage to the film.
