Student of the Year 2 starring Tiger Shroff in the lead alongside newbies Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria fails to make a mark in the finals. A lot of hype was created by the star cast and the makers of the film, however, the new batch flunks with no scope of grace marks.
The narrative is filled with cliches and moves way too slowly. Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria who are making their debut with this movie failed to impress the audience due to shaky performance and forgettable dialogues. It seemed like the entire onus of living up to the expectations of the audience was on Tiger Shroff. And that caused damage - Tiger couldn't really shine. There is lack of emotion, excess of action and martial arts in the movie. It seems like Tiger Shroff been planted in the movie as the sole hope for earning passing marks.
Saint Teresa School looks more like a house party where the only purpose of admission is to grab the Dignity trophy. Pishori Chamandas school is portrayed as a school in rural areas whose playground is a marriage lawn after school hours. The difference between the rich and the poor has been well highlighted in the movie. The man in power rules and so does his lineage.
Tiger Shroff often uses the jargon, "Din Tera Hai Sal Mera Hoga" and is the only dialogue delivery, which he perfected. Tara Sutaria has hardly got any dialogue in the movie which didn't help her at all. Talking about Ananya Panday's screen presence, she still managed to grab some space. Aditya Seal has been portrayed as a rich brat, lacking moral values and the trophy student for the school.
With an unuasual love triangle in the middle of it, there is a tad bit drama in the movie when Shreya(Ananya Panday) gets slapped and Rohan(Tiger Shroff) gets thrown out of school. However, in totality, the movie lacks the oomph factor and is boring.
As a Dharma Productions banner movie, SOTY 2 has the glamour and enchant but the star cast could not pull it off. The previous Student of the Year batch starring Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, and Sidharth Malhotra was quite impressive for the freshness it brought along.
Talking about the music of the film, the only song that stole the limelight is the Jawani song. Will Smith was spotted in the song in a special appearance for just a few seconds. However, he managed to steal the limelight. Besides this, Alia Bhatt's special appearance with Tiger Shroff in the Hook-Up song sidelines Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria's role in the entire movie. Also, the remake of 'Ishq Wala Love' is now 'School Wala Love', which is again meaningless.
The movie got released on May 10, 2019. Watch the official trailer of the movie.
