Judwaa 2 is an effort to introduce a hit film from the ’90s to the millennial, and also a father’s (David Dhawan) effort to take son Varun’s career one notch higher.
A lot of buzz was created around Judwaa 2, because its a remake of Judwaa that starred Salman Khan, and Salman is a big star today. Judwaa was a hit in the 90s (although not the greatest); Judwaa 2 is not a great film either.
But if you’re looking for a masala film, an entertainer, it is one; the movie full of PJs and slapstick humour.
In the second half, lot of jokes has been forced upon the audience, the heroines don’t have much to do in the film (can’t expect much from them in a genre like this). The good thing is that the film does not pretend to be smart, and the fact that the actors are having fun adds to the movie’s charm. Don’t watch Judwaa 2 if you’re looking for something deep.
Here are more reviews of Judwaa 2.
Ratings:3/5 Review By:Meena Site:Times Of India
When you enter the movie hall for this outing, remember to let your hair down and guffaw because from the opening scene itself you’re familiar with the tropes. Lame lyrics, loud gags and leggy lasses never really hurt anyone. Believe me, at one point, you’re tempted to join Varun when he is doing those perfect pelvic thrusts. Judwaa 2 could be a substitute for your Dussehra party. Consult Salman, even he sportingly shows up in a cameo in the end.
Ratings:2/5 Review By:Manjusha Site:Gulfnews
This is an update of 1997 Salman Khan-starring Judwaa that had cheesy jokes delivered with great conviction by the superstar. It was a monstrous hit, but trying to milk that old formula and trying to ride on its steam by recycling old jokes was a terrible idea. Everybody in Judwaa 2 overacts, and the dialogues feel like they were written by an adolescent for his high school drama. Barring few jokes that land, the majority of the gags fail to evoke any emotion.Watch this at your own risk.
Judwaa 2 Story:
Twin brothers Raja and Prem are separated at birth after their father exposes a kingpin and his racket. They eventually come together to battle a smuggling ring and save their family from certain doom.

Varun Dhawan is playing the lead in Judwaa 2, the sequel of Salman Khan’s 1997 comedy Judwaa. Judwaa 2 will feature Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez. Even Salman Khan is expected to do a cameo in the David Dhawan-directed movie (he directed the original version of the movie as well).
The filmmakers have decided to recreate a couple of songs from the first Judwaa, including the hit number “Oonchi Hai Building” (composed by Anu Malik). You can see Varun Dhawan and Tapsee Pannu rehearsing the steps of the song.

“Just a day before the shoot started, I received a carton full of Salman bhai’s jeans. He later called to say the pants will match my tapori character. It was a sweet gesture,” says Varun.
“Salman bhai was standing outside [the set], wearing a ganjee and shorts. And I addressed him as Salman uncle. He said, ‘I will slap you if you call me that. Call me bhai or else I won’t allow you inside’,” says Varun.
The original Judwaa was a blockbuster, but back then, Salman was not as big as he is today. Lot of the credit for the success of the original version also goes to David Dhawan and to the peppy music.
So will the sequel be able to match up to the original? Lets hope so!
