All in all, ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ had an exciting premise to revive the two iconic characters, but this sequel feels like quite a con-job in comparison with its original.
The notorious con couple Bunty and Babli choose to be back in the business to frustrate the endeavors of a youthful couple and deal with them, as they are cheating individuals in their name. But will the originals be able to outsmart the new scamsters on the block?
Saif Ali Khan, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Pankaj Tripathi, Rani Mukherji, Sharvari Wagh

It’s been more than a long time since their last con and Rakesh (Saif Ali Khan) and Vimmi Trivedi (Rani Mukerji), once known as Bunty Aur Babli are presently carrying on with ordinary unassuming community life in Phursatganj Uttar Pradesh. Rakesh is a rail route ticket gatherer and Vimmi is a screechy working-class housewife. Acting in boisterous and beautiful garments during celebrations and events in their rail line province is the main energy in their generally standard life. However, every last bit of it is going to change as Kunal (Siddhant Chaturvedi) and Sonia (Sharvari Wagh) – two youthful designing pass outs are currently defrauding individuals, utilizing the intimately acquainted names of ‘B&B’ that addresses Bunty Aur Babli. For inspector Jatayu Singh (Pankaj Tripathi), the now ‘retired’ Bunty and Babli are the keys to accomplishing his mission of nabbing the new fraudsters.
It’s a plot that is tailor-made for a continuation of capitalizing on the fame of its uniqueness and taking the story forward. Notwithstanding, debutant director and screenplay writer Varun V. Sharma battles to consistently unite everything. The film’s account centers excessively hard around power fitting the references from the first that ought to have come naturally. There are a few creative cons and unrecognizable camouflages, yet the general execution is excessively adolescent to have the option to view any person or thing seriously. The first half is spent mostly in setting up the stage for the ultimate conflict and the story doesn’t move at a solid pace. In the second half, the plot thickens but the lack of logic and conviction in the story and its telling doesn’t make us feel strongly for any of the characters.
A heavenly cast of some prepared craftsmen and promising rookies let somewhere around the powerless and messy composition. All things considered, it’s an enjoyment to watch Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji together, who go over-the-top with their demonstrations yet it is entertaining. The two entertainers show good chemistry regardless of playing a moderately aged couple managing normal homegrown issues. Saif is very charming as the silly and devoted Rakesh Trivedi while Rani’s comic planning is a redeeming quality in any event when she is burdened with a cliché uproarious person and not many really interesting lines or scenes. Truth be told, for a parody this present one’s extremely coming up short on natural humor with simply a small bunch of gags that land.
Siddhant Chaturvedi has his impact well and Sharvari Wagh is extremely sure for her first film. They look great together. Nonetheless, their characters have no history or a persuading move toward causing the crowd to associate with them. Pankaj Tripathi’s demonstration of implanting humor in a country complement is great yet we have seen it too often to track down any curiosity in it. The soundtrack doesn’t have any important melodies like the first however fortunately there are a couple of them in the film.
All things considered, ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ had an interesting reason to revieve the two notorious characters, however, this spin-off feels like a serious con-work in correlation with its uniqueness.
