Dream Girl 2 movie review: The Ayushmann Khurrana film is full of massy humour and  entertainment

The journey of Ayushmann Khurrana from being the poster boy of Bollywood to embodying its Dream Girl must have been a challenging transition. One must commend him for taking such bold risks and portraying Pooja’s character without letting it spiral out of control. Whether this endeavour succeeds or not is a separate matter. On the surface, Dream Girl 2 displays audacity, unapologetic content, and an enjoyable experience.

Director Raaj Shaandilyaa, having introduced Pooja in Dream Girl (2019), reintroduces her with a more daring, unabashed, and courageous demeanour. In the initial installment, Pooja won hearts with her conversations, and the second part brings her to life as a tangible, real woman, stepping out of the telephone. However, despite the flair and confidence that Ayushmann brings to the role of Pooja, Dream Girl 2 doesn’t quite achieve excellence.

Shaandilyaa guides us through the tale of Karamveer, alias Karam, masquerading as Pooja (Ayushmann), who desires to wed Pari (Ananya Panday). However, Pari’s father (Manoj Joshi) imposes a condition: Karam must settle Jagjit Singh’s (Annu Kapoor) debts, amass a substantial bank balance, and secure a stable future. In pursuit of quick money, Karam assumes the persona of bar dancer Pooja, advised by his father and best friend Smiley (Manjot Singh). Yet, this isn’t enough. In a parallel narrative, Smiley aims to marry Sakina, the daughter of a Muslim patriarch (Paresh Rawal), who insists that his despondent son Shah Rukh (Abhishek Bannerjee) marry first. To everyone’s surprise, Smiley persuades Karam, with minimal explanation, to become a sex psychiatrist, leading to Pooja’s unexpected marriage to Shah Rukh. The complications only escalate from there.

And that’s not all! Bar owner Sona Bhaiya (Vijay Raaj) also aspires to marry Pooja, along with an anonymous bank official (Ranjan Ranjan Raj) who hasn’t even seen her. The chaos intensifies with the introduction of over-the-top characters, including Sakina’s adopted brother (Rajpal Yadav), grandfather (Asrani), and a thrice-married aunt named Jumani (Seema Pahwa) who develops feelings for Karam, while Karam’s father Jagjit becomes infatuated with her. Thus, the comedy of errors takes off.

Viduthalai Part 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed 2023 hit, Viduthalai Part 1, has sparked fervent anticipation among fans. Starring Vijay Sethupathi and Manju Warrier in the lead roles, the sequel is set to delve deeper into Vijay’s character.

Scheduled for release by the end of the year, Viduthalai Part 2 marks the conclusion of the two-part adaptation of Jeyamohan’s poignant short story Thunaivan, produced by Elfred Kumar and Vetrimaaran. The film not only promises to entertain but also aims to leave a lasting impact with its exploration of complex characters. As anticipation builds, fans eagerly await the culmination of this cinematic journey, promising to be as riveting as it is resonant.

Perumal Vaathiyaar shared the two posters on X (formerly known as Twitter), while Vijay wrote, “The beginning of a new chapter begins with Viduthalai 2, directed by #VVetriMaaran. First Look is Out #ValourAndLove, an @ilaiyaraaja musical.” In the first poster, Vijay is depicted screaming in the middle of a field, holding a machete in his hand, while the second poster presents a softer scene, featuring Vijay pushing a bicycle through serene fields with Manju Warrier by his side.

Building on the success of its predecessor, Viduthalai Part 2 aims to further unravel Perumal’s complex character and his journey, promising to captivate audiences with its depth and emotional resonance. The film also sees the return of essential actors such as Soori, Rajeev Menon, Bhavani Sre, Gautham Vasudev Menon, and Chetan reprising their roles.

This film is the second part of a two-part adaptation of Jeyamohan’s short story Thunaivan, produced by Vetrimaaran and Elfred Kumar. Anurag Kashyap’s reunion with Vijay Sethupathi after their collaboration in “Maharaja” adds further intrigue to the ensemble.

Bigg Boss OTT 3: Sai Ketan Rao hurls chair at Lovekesh Kataria, almost hits him in heated argument, video surfaces

In the most recent episode of Bigg Boss OTT 3, an intense verbal clash unfolded between contestants Sai Ketan Rao and Lovekesh Kataria, sending shockwaves among viewers. The incident commenced innocuously enough with Lovekesh making a passing comment about another contestant, only to be swiftly challenged by Sai for unwarranted interference. What began as a mere disagreement quickly snowballed into a fiery argument within the confines of the notorious reality show.

Tensions reached a boiling point when Sai, in a fit of vexation, hurled a piece of Bigg Boss property in Lovekesh’s direction, intensifying the already charged atmosphere. Sai’s subsequent shirt removal and aggressive approach towards Lovekesh alarmed onlookers, but prompt intervention from Ranvir Shorey averted the situation from escalating into a physical altercation.

The public outcry following the ruckus was palpable as citizens took to social media to express divergent opinions. While some defended Sai Ketan, attributing his reaction to Lovekesh’s provocation, others rebuked both contestants for their use of abusive language and aggressive demeanour. This discord not only shed light on varying perceptions of acceptable conduct in a reality show environment but also underscored the blurred lines between entertainment and conflict.

As tensions simmered within the Bigg Boss house post-incident, the repercussions of this heated exchange are anticipated to reverberate through the contestants in the days ahead. The incident, stirring a frenzy of commentary from spectators and critics alike, serves as a poignant reminder of the emotional rollercoaster and social intricacies inherent in the realm of reality television.

Meanwhile, in a swift turn of events, Adnaan Shaikh’s entry into Bigg Boss OTT 3 as a wildcard contestant—following Chandrika Dixit’s recent eviction—was short-lived as he faced immediate expulsion for sharing information from outside the house with the contestants, marking a surprising twist in the ongoing drama within the Bigg Boss domain.
