Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2

Director: Dibakar Banerjee

Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2 Movie Synopsis:
LOVE SEX AUR DHOKHA 2 is the story of modern relationships and self-discovery in the high-tech age. The film consists of three tracks. Noor (Paritosh Tiwari) is a transgender who has participated in a voyeuristic reality show, ‘Truth Yaa Naach’, hosted by Mouni Roy (Mouni Roy) and judged by Prem Desi (Anu Malik), Tusshar (Tusshar Kapoor) and Sophie (Sophie Choudry). In order to increase her chances of winning, Noor is persuaded to get her mother (Swaroopa Ghosh) on the show. The daughter and the mother haven’t spoken in two years. Yet, the mother decides to appear on the show. Meanwhile, the showrunners are happy with the ratings that Noor is getting for the show. But at the same time, they are under pressure since their sponsor wants to target a family-friendly audience. The second track is of Kullu Vishwakarma (Bonita Rajpurohit), who works at Ojaswi Udyog Limited metro station, which is wholly run by transgenders under the leadership of Lovina Singh (Swastika Mukherjee). One day, Kullu is found badly injured in an abandoned site. She refuses to elaborate on how she got assaulted and who is behind it. Lovina tries to find the truth and she gets the shock of her life. The final track is of a game vlogger Shubham aka Game Paapi (Abhinav Singh). He is all set to achieve 10 million followers. While live streaming a game, an anonymous account by the name of ‘Full Moon’ leaks pictures of him having sex with another man. A shocked Shubham tries to clarify that it’s a fake video but no one is ready to listen. What happens next forms the rest of these tracks in the film.

Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2 Movie Story Review:
Prateek Vats, Shubham and Dibakar Banerjee’s story is a reflection of the reality of our times. Prateek Vats, Shubham and Dibakar Banerjee’s screenplay, however, is messy and confusing. Prateek Vats, Shubham and Dibakar Banerjee’s dialogues are witty in places. Sadly, many cuss words are muted and that affects the impact.

Dibakar Banerjee’s direction is weak. From his first film KHOSLA KA GHOSLA [2006], he’s known for hatke execution. But it has never happened that one gets clueless about the goings-on in his films. Sadly, that’s exactly what happens in LOVE SEX AUR DHOKHA 2. There are several moments where the viewers will be left scratching their heads. And the scenes that make sense are not as impactful. The first track has its share of arresting moments. But the impact is limited as it’s akin to watching a show like ‘Bigg Boss’ on the big screen. Thankfully, the track ends on an amusing note. The second track seems intriguing. However, the writers and director leave many questions unanswered. The third track goes above the head and no attempt is made to simplify the proceedings. Dibakar, it seems assumed that everyone will be able to comprehend and sadly, that doesn’t happen. On top of that, there is hardly anything for the masses in the film.

Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2 Movie Performances:
The performances save the day to some extent. Paritosh Tiwari plays a difficult role with ease. The same applies to Bonita Rajpurohit. Her dialogue delivery and breakdown scenes are spot on. Abhinav Singh gets into the skin of his character and essays it as if he’s been a vlogger all his life. Swastika Mukherjee has a crucial part and she is terrific, as always. Anu Malik rocks the show in a cameo. Mouni Roy is lovely. Tusshar Kapoor and Sophie Choudry are fine in their respective cameos. Swaroopa Ghosh lends able support. The actors playing Asifa, Pushpesh Mishra, Ajmal, Nimesh and Kiran do well.

Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2 music and other technical aspects:
The music is well woven into the narrative. ‘Kamsin Kali’ is the best of the lot and its theme is very catchy. Dhanashree Verma adds to the glam factor. ‘Gandi Taal’ is funny while the title track registers. ‘Gulabi Ankhiyan’ is wasted. Dibakar Banerjee, Tanmay Bhattacharjee and Nimrit Shah’s background score is fair.

Riju Das and Anand Bansal’s cinematography and Tanmay Bhattacharjee’s sound design add to the realism. Tiya Tejpal’s production design is authentic. Juliee Borse and Nidhi Agarwal’s costumes are straight out of life. Paramita Ghosh’s editing is okay. Special mention should also go to Green Rain Studios for their top-notch animation. Switch’s title design is also impressive.

Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2 Movie Conclusion:
On the whole, LOVE SEX AUR DHOKHA 2 fails to make an impact as it’s too confusing. At the box office, it will turn out to be a disaster due to limited hype and niche appeal.
