Fukrey Returns‘ stars exactly where the story ended in the previous installment. Bholi Punjaban (Richa Chadha) is as infuriated as ever and is serving her jail sentence. Choocha (Varun Sharma) has still not stopped watching bizarre dreams and his guy gang has still not given up on making money with his weird dreams. Laali (Manjot Singh) who always gives in to his gang’s plans is now in trouble, while Pandit Ji (Pankaj Tripathi) is the same partner in crime as he always was. Tripathi steals the how with his humour in the entire movie.

Bholi now makes a deal with a politician and comes out of the jail promising him to pay Rs 10 crore. As soon as she’s out, she catches hold of the four guys who now have to do everything possible to save their lives. They rely on Choocha’s dream which later on fails and in no time they have a huge number of people running behind them to kill them.

The movie which starts as a comedy now turns into a semi-thriller. The guy gang is busy finding treasure in the tunnels of Delhi and we witness a lot of wrong things right from smuggling to chit funds to poaching.

Vipul Vig has nicely written the story without leaving any loopholes. But the comedy isn’t as smooth as it was expected to be. There are moments which aren’t funny at all and then there are moments which will leave you with a big grin. Talking about performances, Varun Sharma is exceptional with his effortless comedy while Zafar (Ali Fazal) is subtle with his part. And like we said, Pankaj Tripathi has slayed with his character and comic timings which has worked wonders for the film.

‘Fukrey Returns’ isn’t going to leave you in splits at all times, but is watchable for once.
