The film begins with the haveli of Bhawanigarh in Rajasthan, where Manjulika’s spirit is creating a ruckus. But a Baba, with the help of a mantra-tantra, locks it in a room in the mansion itself and instructs the entire Thakur family to never open it. After this the whole family leaves the mansion and leaves. But after 18 years in the same haunted mansion, there is a return of Reet Thakur, who is the daughter of that house. Reet believes that there are no ghosts and Manjulika’s stories are lies. She wants to stay there for a few days, hiding from the family members for some reason. Ruhaan helps him in this. But as soon as the Thakur family gets the news that someone has entered the haveli, the whole family comes back there. When it becomes difficult for Reet to hide from her family members.. she decides to hide in the same room which was locked 18 years ago with mantra-tantra. Manjulika’s soul breaks free as soon as she opens the door of the room. And once again the ghostly incidents start. In such a situation, how will Reet and Ruhan be able to save themselves and the whole family from Manjulika.. That’s what makes the whole story.
The audience had put a heavy responsibility on Kartik Aaryan, making constant comparisons with Akshay Kumar. But the actor has put all the comparisons aside and played the lead character in his own style and has done complete justice. Comedy scene or horror… Kartik has won hearts with his expressions. Kiara is good in her character. But he was not given anything different from his other films. At the same time, Tabu’s character can be a surprise package for the fans. There is a twist in his character, which he has played with great ease. Rajpal Yadav, Amar Upadhyay, Sanjay Mishra, Milind Gunaji, Rajesh Sharma etc. have done a good job in supporting roles. Also child artist Siddhant Ghegdamal leaves his mark as Potlu.
Anees Bazmee is known for his unique approach to comedy films. So, even in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, the comedy part seems to be slightly increased as compared to the horror. The special thing about the director is that he has given it his own treatment unlike the original film (Bhool Bhulaiyaa). But then why two songs were borrowed from that film.. it is incomprehensible. The way “Aami Je Tomar” was included in Bhool Bhulaiyaa, the song became the hallmark of the film. But here it is in vain. However, the film begins in a very strong way, but by the time it reaches the climax, the story starts to waver from the track. There is no doubt that there are many shortcomings in the story, but the starcast makes up for them.
The dialogues of the film are written by Farhad Samji and Akash Kaushik, which are good. However, in the name of comedy, when the taunting of obesity of a child will be stopped in films, I do not know. Manu Anand’s cinematography is good and sets a tone in the story. He captures the beauty and magic of the haveli best in his camera. At the same time, the editing of Bunty Nagi is commendable.
The music of the film is given by Pritam, which is average. There are a total of four songs in the film, out of which two have been taken from old films. Not only the composition, but the way the song was fitted in the story was also distracting. It can be said that the songs work to increase the length of the film.

This film, which came as a sequel to the 2007 film ‘Bhool Bhalaiya’, tries to capture the same episode in a new way.. and that is probably the best thing about the film. If you are a fan of Karthik Aryan, then definitely watch this movie in theatre. 3 stars for ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ from Filmibeat.
