Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Facts
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Released recently But Bhool Bhulaiyaa ( transl. Labyrinth) is a 2007 Indian Hindi-language comedy horror film directed by Priyadarshan and produced by T-Series.
An accidental, yet destined meet up between two strangers Ruhaan and Reet, ends up with them visiting Reet’s home town in Rajasthan. Fate leads them to opening up an old secret due to which all hell breaks loose leading to one lie, leading to a whole pile of lies sends Ruhaan and Reet on a scary rollercoaster ride and their tragedy keeps becoming our comedy.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Let me set the context at the very beginning – I loved Bhool Bhulaiyaa when it came out. Sure, I had my problems with it, Vidya Balan’s terrible Bengali accent being the least of them. This time around too, the ghost happens to be a Bengali damsel-causing-distress.
When Tabu was cast as Vidya Balan’s successor, I sensed the direction for Manjulika’s character development already – a strong, opinionated woman – obviously a nightmare for many an Indian (male). However, I still wanted to give the movie a go; personal politics aside, one also needs to be entertained in life.
Is Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 hit or flop?
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 It has become Kartik Aaryan’s highest grosser to date. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has emerged as the most successful Bollywood entertainer to hit the big screens since the COVID-19 pandemic.
This time Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Manjulika has been given an extensive back story. The story has shifted from a royal palace in Varanasi to one in Rajasthan’s noble quarters. Manjulika’s existence in real life (spoilers ahead) has been given clarity – she was a dancer who fell in love with the palace’s prince. Alas, in a twist of fate, her twin sister Anjalika was to be his bride of choice. Manjulika tries her best to ruin her sister’s life and becomes a ghost at the end of it.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 had a reason behind the madness.
How akshay kumar went to central india and found the reason for Manjaulika uprising.
The sequel is is made with no logic. The makers should watch the original again and try to understand the movie 🎥 before the sequel.
Do makers watch the movie before releasing it.
I am surprised to see Tabu act in such a movie.
This shows actors take movies to pay their bills. Inflation is taking a toll on art.
Kartik Aryan has increased his fees post this movie. Well if this gets him to cloud 9 then i think i am a better actor then this guys.
Kiara is ok not much acting to do Shiney Ahuja acted better then all the actors together in 2.0.
AK , Vidya Balan, Paresh Raval, Manoj Joshi Vikram Ghokhale cant compare their art with the present cast.
Frankly i think producer had money and was scared of another round of notebandhi so he made this movie to get rid of his black money.
Just a small tip for producer: Invest money on storyline
For Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 please watch the original 10 times and then make it.
Like any good old patriarchal tale setting, obviously, this house of horrors has the classic Madonna/Whore or good girl/witch syndrome behind it. The good girl’s the one who gets sacrificed (I can’t reveal how without completely spoiling the plot), and the witch (or ghost in this case) is the reason behind everyone’s misery. She, who represents the ‘bad energy’, needs to be contained (or repressed eternally) for society to go back to normal. Now we all know how bad this is already looking from a feminist perspective.
Fearing witches, and repressing or burning them, isn’t exclusive to India. Unfortunately, all over the world, women are burnt at stake trying to prove their innocence. In India, too, many innocent women are brutally murdered till today, losing out to public mania, feared as a witch or possessed by the many forms of a female ghost in different cultures – chudail, pret, petni, etc. etc.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 also runs down the same line as far as the irrational fear of ghosts is concerned. To make matters worse, this ghost Manjulika knew the tantric arts before her death (and obviously, she’s Bengali, the rest of India’s favorites stereotype about Bengali women).
Sure, you find her with her floating hair and her paper-white face. But, the same romantic sight becomes a feared one. This isn’t a story of vintage value. Instead, this story upholds vintage, regressive fears and myths.
The casual misogyny in a mainstream Bollywood movie isn’t, unfortunately, the movie’s only problem.
The main protagonist, or Hindi-film hero, needs the side character of a young kid to provide comic relief. He is variously called ‘haathi’, ‘bhaari’ and fat-shamed in various ways; the hero goes on to threaten his life at one point – and we’re all supposed to take this as a joke. Ha-ha, the hero just threatened to topple a kid off the balcony – but it’s funny because the kid is too fat. Get it? No?
If chudails and fat-shaming have entered the party, can caste be left behind in this regressive rave? At one point, the hero rues the fact that he’s fallen in love with a Thakur, and it would be convenient if she were an Agarwal instead. (As Thakurs are brave, Agarwals are not, get it?)
The ending by which I had had enough of this movie bizarrely tries to give the ghost a plot twist by making her good and her alive twin bad. To my actual horror, we then see the entire family stand aside while they watch the ghost pulling their beloved bhabhi by the hair, torturing her and locking her up in the room where the ghost had resided till then.
No one lifts a finger, even as their beloved daughter-in-law is suddenly declared as scheming and the root cause of evil. Worse, they turn a blind eye as she is tortured in front of their eyes. By this time, I wanted to return to the relatively kinder world of Akshay Kumar–Vidya Balan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa and forget the movie, which made me more uncomfortable than it made me laugh.
Basically this movie is just for comedy. Not a single thrilling moment. I will prefer to watch old bhool bhulaiyaa multiple times if they wish to release it again. Meaningless songs in first half do not needed. After 1st 20 mins kiara’s role in the film become useless. All efforts done by Tabu only. She is the soul and ghost of this movie and of course climax stole from Charulata or alone movie. Overall hardly one time watchable.
The movie is filled with illogical scenes. Nothing in this movie keeps you engaged.
The comedy : Except a few scenes you will find hard that when will we get to laugh?
Rajpal yadav and sanjay mishra’s talent in this movie is totally wasted.
The horror : the director does a very poor job in executing horror scenes. Nothing in the movie will scare you. Only kids below 10 may get scared by those jump scares used in the movie.
The acting : I don’t complain that the actors didn’t do their job well. They did well with whatever scene was given to job. The problem is with stretchy illogical scenes which will make them look bad.
The climax They have just copied it from some bollywood movie. I dont remember the name but bipasha basu was in it. If they would had atleast executed it well then it may had looked better.
I just waited for the movie to get over.
Its good that akshay kumar didnt choose to do this movie. It would had been complete injustice.
I don’t understand why the movie is getting such high rating. Please watch it on ott it doesn’t deserve the big screen.
