Yaariyan 2 | Movie Review

“Yaariyan 2” is a drama based on the bond between cousins facing the weight of their parents’ expectations. While it showcases their camaraderie, the film’s plot could benefit from a tighter narrative.

Based on ‘Bangalore Days,’ ‘Yaariyan 2′ delves into the intertwined lives of Laadli Chhiber (Divya Khosla Kumar), Shikhar Randhawa (Meezaan Jafri), and Bajrang, aka Bajju (Pearl V Puri), cousins who relocate to Mumbai, compromising on their aspirations to meet their parents’ expectations. The film navigates their struggles—Laadli’s loveless marriage, Shikhar’s racing ban, and Bajju’s corporate grind—while they bond amid life’s challenges.

Directed and penned by Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru, the film grapples with parental pressures but falls short in exploring its depth. While addressing the trio’s changes under these pressures, the narrative meanders, introducing numerous subplots—loss, break-ups, and relationships—causing a disjointed focus. The excessive character backgrounds divert attention from the core narrative, creating predictability in the storyline.

Despite these flaws, the trio’s chemistry shines, portraying genuine camaraderie. Divya Khosla Kumar, Meezaan Jafri, and Pearl V Puri resonate well, showcasing their unity amidst adversities. Yash Daasguptaa’s portrayal as a husband accepting his vivacious wife adds depth. Anaswara Rajan’s portrayal as Shikhar’s love interest brings a touch of brightness.

The soundtrack, featuring catchy tunes and heartfelt melodies, complements the romantic drama. While bike races inject action, the film primarily revolves around emotional entanglements and family ties.

‘Yaariyan 2’ caters to romance and drama enthusiasts but misses a tightly woven narrative, which could have enhanced its overall impact.
