Here comes the sequel of the biggest blockbuster of Punjabi Cinema, Jatt & Juliet. As expected the entire main cast has been similar to the first part. Alike current trend of Bollywood, Punjabi cinema is also going for sequels. First part, Jatt & Juliet 2 being the biggest blockbuster Punjabi movie, the sequel generates even bigger expectations for the audience.
Jatt & Juliet was driven by just the one man, Diljit Dosanjh, as is the case in Jatt & Juliet 2.The whole sequel moves very close to the first part, Jatt & Juliet.
About Story –
Punjab Police constable Fateh Singh (Diljit Dosanjh) being sent to Canada for some reason and that reason is created by his senior officer Joginder Singh (Jaswinder Bhalla) who has problems with Fateh Singh. Pooja Singh (Neeru Bajwa) is a constable in Canada Police and she has been appointed with Fateh Singh to help him in solving his case in Canada. Pooja wants to marry a Canadian boy but the situation makes her fall in love with Fateh Singh. But when she comes to know about Fateh’s lie, they both get separated. Then how Fateh finds his love back, you will get to know when you watch it.
Whats Good –
Out standing performance by Diljit Dosanjh once again and Neeru Bajwa has also acted even better in part 2. Direction has been superb in sense of shot making and in use of locations. Screenplay and Dialogs have been the biggest support to the story. First half and the climax have been very more interesting.
Whats Not –
This time the story concept is not that impressive, how it was in the first part. Repetition of few characters (like Shampy) doesn’t strike much. Few scenes are beyond the logics, like the fake case being created against Shampy, Punjabi Policeman giving lecture to Canada Polics in Punjabi and they are clapping, even the Love story happens very easily between Fateh and Pooja. But with these small flaws, movie has got more to praise than to criticize.
About Characters –
Diljit Dosanjh may have looked like in the similar character as in first Jatt & Juliet but yet his character is admirable in Jatt & Juliet 2 for two reasons: first, the movie required the similar kind of character and second, his dialog delivery is even better in the second part. Neeru Bajwa has already got heaps of experience but she has looked even more improved actress in Jatt & Juliet 2. Jaswinder Bhalla always leaves his impression with his own created dialogs but this time his dialogs may not be that impressive but he has looked the perfect choice for this character. Rana Ranbir and BN Sharma have been given exactly the same characters as the first Jatt & Juliet. Repetition may have gone against them but they are too good actors to perform what they are asked for.
About Story, Screenplay & Dialogs –
Story concept was one of the strongest points in Jatt & Juliet which isn’t the same in Jatt & Juliet 2. The story is not so strong here which tends to loose focus at some points. Screenplay and Dialogs have been splendid and supports to lift the story line in a big way.
About Music & Background Score –
When Diljit Dosanjh is featuring in a movie and singing songs for it, Jatinder Shah produces the music for the songs, so there are very less chances that the music doesn’t go popular. Songs of Jatt & Juliet are not the block busters but yet there have been picks like Shoulder, Naina and Akhiyan. Background music is very appropriate with each of the scenes.
About Direction –
Anurag Singh has already shown his skills in Jatt & Juliet, Yaar Anmulle and in few of his bollywood movies. He has been equally impressive in Jatt & Juliet in terms of his shot makings, story sequencing and in a manner he has used the background locations. So once again his work is really creditable here.
All in All (About Movie) –
Jatt & Juliet 2 has been a little down in comparison with Jatt and Juliet but yet it is a witty, funny and also a bit emotional. It’s certainly a boost to the progressive Punjabi cinema which decently entertains and another deserving watch.
Star Rating –
From punjabgold.com, Jatt & Juliet 2 gets 3.5/5.
