Yaariyan 2 tells the story of three cousins, Laadli Chhiber, Shikhar Randhawa, and Bajrang, who moved to Mumbai to live up to their parents’ expectations. However, Shikhar, a bike racer from a shattered home who faces a lifetime racing ban.

Laadli finds herself in a loveless marriage to Abhay Singh Katyal, and Bajju is confined to a corporate job under a strict supervisor. The “cousins by blood but friends by choice” persevere in supporting one another through their respective personal problems despite these obstacles.

The tale of Yaariyan 2 follows three Shimla-born cousins as they relocate to Mumbai and experience life’s ups and downs as well as adventures that change them as individuals. The film’s opening story revolves around the relationships of the three main protagonists and includes breakups and the death of loved ones, veers off course, and introduces too many plot points.

This lengthens the film, as the audience’s focus shifts between different characters and tracks. This is particularly true when characters other than the main leads are given backstories. Although the cousins’ bond has been effectively shown, the remaining tunes sound cliched.

As cousins and friends, Divya Khosla Kumar and debutantes Meezaan Jafri and Pearl V Puri exhibit a strong bond during happy times, awkward situations, and times when they need to lean on one another. Yash Daasguptaa does a good job portraying a whiny husband. He’s interesting because of his persona as a prim, proper, and serious businessman who embraces his bling-loving, fun-loving wife for who she is.

Anaswara Rajan plays Shikhar’s love interest in the film; she is a decently intelligent but differently-abled girl. On the music of the film are catchy tunes such as Saure Ghar, the wedding song, and the poignant Simroon Tera Naam and Peene De club banger. This otherwise romantic drama gets some action from bike races.

A more concentrated plot and a tighter screenplay would have improved the drama directed by Vinay Sapru and written by Radhika Rao. Fans of drama and romance may enjoy this film because it has plenty of both. However, a close-knit story would have made the movie much more interesting.

Ratings: 2.5/5

Yaariyan 2 feels long, especially in the second hour, but it could have been a fun Bollywood movie. The editing needed to be much more precise. The dialogue is generally poor and the screenplay is disjointed. A 2.5 out of 5-star rating has been assigned to this film.
