We are quick with our sermons, while making a case for equality. However, it's undeniable that we are still reeling under the pressures of moral tyrants who act like autocratic purists when it comes to the love of a gay couple. How progressive are we?
It is nearly impossible to decipher what this inept film is all about. Based on a thin, staggering plot line, it has a careless narrative which makes a mockery of its powerful theme. The film sets its bold tone right, almost as soon as it begins. But, as the narrative progresses, it jumbles up while juggling between too many ideas. What doesn't help the film's case is its lousy script, amateur acting and frivolous style.
Though the movie's first glimpses were successful in grabbing eyeballs by aping famous scenes from iconic films, there isn't a hint of inventiveness in its story. What is most heartbreaking here is to see the names of Zeenat Aman and Lata Mangeshkar in the credit titles. Zeenat Aman, who plays an important part in the film, deserves a lot better than this.
Homosexuality is a raging subject today, not only in our country, but all over the world. While tackling a story this sensitive, the writers needed to be careful. But, in turn, the story they churned out is nothing short of lame. Filled with innuendos and ludicrous lines, it has nothing that works as its saving grace.
Despite being well-intentioned, Dunno Y2 is a misfire. Actors Yuvraaj Parashar and Kapil Sharma are passable is the roles of Aryan and Ashley.
But, it's problematic that the matter they have in hand is passe and isn't in-sync with the present dynamics of the issue. With homosexual marriages getting legalized in America and Article 377 coming under fiery scrutiny in India, the landscape has changed a lot since 2010 (the year of its prequel).
It is unnecessarily sensational and lacks the affable charm which could've changed the fate of this mediocre movie. There is some interesting energy to watch out for, but overall, its drama lacks the desired fervour.
