Julie 2 Review & Rating|
‘Julie 2’ is a film directed by Deepak Shivdasani and produced by ex CBFC chairman Pahlaj Nihalani. The film marks the Bollywood debut of Raai Laxmi and is a sequel to the 2004 film ‘Julie’ which starred Neha Dhupia. The film tells the story of the ups and downs in the life of an actress named Julie and how she deals with them.
Raai Laxmi gives a good performance despite a weak story and uninteresting screenplay, and she is the only saving grace of the film. Ravi Kishan in the role of a Telugu superstar named Ravi Kumar is over the top and very loud. Talented actors like Pankaj Tripathi, who has almost nothing to do in this film, cannot save the film.
Deepak Shivdasani tries to make a comeback as a director but fails terribly at doing so. The screenplay is bland and there is nothing new or innovative to it. The music too fails at entertaining the audience and flays away from the storyline. The plot is one which we've seen many times before.
Verdict: This film is filled with deadpan performances and a non impressive screenplay. 'Julie 2' can be avoided.
Julie 2 Critic Reviews
Julie 2 User Reviews
'Julie 2' is probably one of the most awaited films of the year, thanks to the trailer and controversies. Coming to the movie, right after first 30 minutes or so we regret watching the film as there's nothing great story wise or technicalities wise. Laxmi Rai though tries her best to save the film but I should say she is not that successful.
There are very few films which are made on film celebrities' lives that impressed and many which didn't. Sadly, Julie 2 joins the second list of movies. Finally, Julie 2 is a pathetic film which is made just for the sake of making a movie and offers nothing special to the audience.
'Julie 2' is very boring and gets unintentionally funny at times. There was no need for this over the top and overdramatic sequel. Raai Laxmi is good in her role but the story and direction lets her down completely. Ravi Kishan plays the role of a Telugu superstar and it is his character that is supposed to be serious but the audience can't help but laugh at his acting. By the end of the movie, the audience is left wondering why great actors like Pankaj Tripathi agreed to be a part of this movie. Deepak Shivdasani has failed to recreate the magic of the original film.
There are some films you wished were never made and ‘Julie 2’ falls effortlessly into that category. It seemed a ripoff of Vidya Balan’s Dirty Picture but Julie 2 is a big disappointment and fails to titillate on all fronts. Deepak Shivdasani should have continued his hibernation as a director but alas tries to make a comeback. Raai Laxmi tries her best but falls flat with her deadpan looks as even the songs sound stale. None of the other actors are worth a mention. I am trying for a refund hoping against hope. Avoid it even on TV!!!
