Good hearted but not worldly-wise, the rolly-polly tax inspector, Bharat Bhushan (Vinay Pathak) is back to fulfill his long cherished dream of becoming a singer. To further his media ambition he enters a game show hoping to win a cash prize with which he can make his own music album. Eventually Bhushan goes on to win the competition which also gifts him a free stay on a cruise ship. It is on this cruise that he meets Ajit Talwar (Kay Kay Menon), an acrid tongue sadistic business tycoon, who is taking sheath on the cruise to flee from the Income Tax department. Close on his heels is tax inspector M.T.Shekharan (Suresh Menon), who is trying to unearth the identity of a financial scamster who has been elusive since long. On the cruise when Ajit Talwar learns about Bharat Bhushan’s profession, he alerts his subordinates to keep a watch on him and in due course, get rid of him. However, on being introduced to Ajit Talwar, Bhushan finds out of his media investments and is out to impress him.
The good points of the movie are it surely makes you laugh and it is slow but steady comedy. Vinay is wonderful as the dimwit and tries to restructure the magic all over again.
Minissha looks gorgeous and enacts her part well. Kay Kay is efficient, as always. Suresh Menon is too good. In fact, the entire South Indian-North Indian bickering between Vinay and Suresh is a highpoint of the enterprise. Rahul Vohra leaves a mark. Ditto for Aditi Gowitrikar. Amit Behl is good. Kishwer Merchant acts well. The bad points of the movie are like Amol gupte disheartens. Also because he’s saddled with an inconsequential part. Rukhsaar is wasted. Rahul singh gets no space. Virendra Saxena suffers due to a poorly sketched role. On the whole, BHEJA FRY 2 rides on a triumphant brand, but one expects a laudable follow up in terms of hilarity and entertainment. Besides, it should’ve taken the movie-watching experience to the next level. Sadly, it doesn’t! So go and watch the movie because it makes you laugh and it has slow and steady comedy but fails to fulfill the movie watching experience.
