Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...is an entertaining and an enjoyable fare which will strike a chord in the audience’s hearts.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...this chapter doesn’t have much of that ishq wala love, but there is ample dosti, kabaddi and cool stuff to keep you going. Think of it as a much snazzier version of ‘Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander’ minus the realism.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...lacks emotion. The linear, soulless, story-telling is tepid.  The only time you open your eyes is to ogle at Tiger Shroff.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...Malhotra plays it on the back-foot, hoping to crack it with a formulaic plot and clichéd characters that barely go beyond the call of duty. Perhaps, it’s time for the makers to return to film school?

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...all in all a light-hearted rom-com mingled with retro mixes, making the film a one-time watch.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • The sequel that nobody wanted is neither an improvement over the original nor a downgrade of it. The bar is low to begin with, and when the butter-limbed Tiger Shroff is around, it’s easily surmounted.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • You signed up for a fantasy and that’s precisely what director Punit Malhotra is providing. What you can complain about is the poor writing. 

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • A wafer thin, predictable champions versus the underdogs plot, with actors that look like they're posing for 146 minutes except for five awesome minutes.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is both predictable, and far from original. But that’s not even the big problem with the film. Unlike the previous instalment this one isn’t grounded in emotion, so it’s hard to be invested in the characters or affected by their conflicts.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a let down.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Wouldn’t saying, “SOTY 2 is predictable,” predictable in itself? Let’s just say, you get what you expect. Even if there might just have been some potential for change in dynamics between characters, ultimately they are only sly story-telling tactics.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • This is brainlessly breezy fare wrapped in gloss that wears off quickly. It is sad to see such silly stuff being palmed off as teen entertainment.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has no spunk, no plot and zero charisma.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • The film lacks drama, conflict and narrative tension, with dialogues written for mannequins.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • This class of 2019 is awash with predictable beats, which is to be expected from an underdog story, but that it is so clichéd and stilted, is disappointing: from KJo I expect much more swish and sparkle.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Despite the fresh, young faces at the centre, a staleness looms large over SOTY2.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...in trying to tell a rags-to-riches story in a franchise that solely celebrates the latter, he belittles the spirit of genuine sports films worth their salt. As a love story, too, the film is bereft of spark, with tired tricks and predictable arcs promptly giving away who will go with whom. 

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • SOTY 1 chose to spend more time on its characters’ bodies, make-up and wardrobes, its soundtrack and dance routines than on its writing, but proved to be entertaining in its own limited fashion. SOTY 2 seems not to even try.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is an unbelievably shallow mix of Karan Johar's Student Of The Year and Mansoor Khan's Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, with shaky performances and forgettable songs in an ultra-glamorous setting.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is just a silly, formulaic film with stock characters who are just pretty to ogle. It's a bit crude, a lot illogical and you might have to be in a certain state of mind to enjoy a film this silly.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...provides the answer to the question no one was asking: what if Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar was a Johar film?

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the clothes, the technicians, the sets, Tiger Shroff — must have cost crores, so why does Arshad Sayed’s script feel like it cost 50 paise? This is a question we keep asking our big-budget productions. SOTY 2 is undernourished and overlong.
