Plot: What would you do if you were told not to touch anyone because it brings bad luck to the people you love?
In 2004, Kedar Shinde teamed up with Sanjay Narvekar (a leading star then) to deliver a delightful comedy which was inspired by the Mel Gibson starrer 'What Women Want'. While 'Aga Bai Arechyaa', the first part of this franchise, gave the power of hearing women's thoughts to the protagonist, 'Aga Bai Arechyaa 2' explores the sense of touch using a mix of three genres - fantasy, romance and comedy.
It is clear from the beginning that the only similarity that the film has with the first part is its name; the protagonist is new, the co-actors are new and the premise is completely different. So, we are presented with the story of Shubha (a stunning Sonali) who, despite being in many relationships, hasn't found the suitable guy yet. The reason, or what the director would have us believe, is that Shubha believes that whenever she touches the person she loves, something bad happens to him. The film then goes into flashback mode to explain what has built this belief and we are introduced to some of the people Shubha fell in love with. Shubha narrates her experiences to Vikram (Gohil), a writer who is in the process of writing a book about her.
When you have people like Sonali, Bharat, Prasad and Milind Phatak in the cast, there are certain expectations that you go to watch the film with, considering all of them are good actors. But by the time you get to the second half of the film you are torn between high expectations and mediocre presentation. And by the end of the film, you are thoroughly disappointed.
Not that the film is bad. It has its moments and Kedar's typical comic portrayal of funny instances. In fact, the first half is very enjoyable, much credit of which goes to Shivraj Waichal's comic timing and Sonali's beauty. Then the film gradually becomes tedious and only a few scenes (Sonali's drunken scene being the best) manage to evoke laughter. Bharat proves he still is as good at comedy as ever but Sonali is unnecessarily loud. You miss her effortless acting while seeing her try too hard in this one.
On the whole, the film is more like a montage of funny instances and can be watched if you are looking for a few guffaws after a hectic week.
