Charlie Chaplin 2 review: Not as funny as the original
Director Shakti Chidambaram’s 2002 Film was a comedy with sufficient jokes that would still be relevant to watch on Aditya Tv. Now, almost 17 years later, the director along with its original leads Prabhu Deva and Prabhu has returned with a sequel to the film. First and foremost, the big question is, was it even necessary?
Just like the first part, the film explores with misunderstandings that take place between the characters. Charlie Chaplin 2 conveys this, but there’s hardly anything enjoyable in this film. The film’s story revolves around Thiru Prabhu Deva) falling in love with Sara (Nikki Galrani) daughter of Ram (Prabhu). Things take a twist when Thiru misunderstands Sara’s intentions, during this phase another woman named Sara (Adah Sharma) enters the scene. What follows next forms the story.
Featuring jokes that’s include shaming ones body and looks, obscenity accompanied by generic sounds that are a part of comedy shows – Charlie Chaplin 2 is a pain to sit through. In one scene Thiru (Prabhu Deva)’s friend decides to take a bag from Sara (Nikki Galrani)’s bag. Turns out that he misses the aim and reaches a ‘private area’. Yes – as bad as that sounds, it’s worse when you watch It.
The film fails to create laughs and drags the story way to long. It could’ve had better jokes and good twists that could’ve made a potentially good plot execute the story better.
Prabhu Deva, who is the reason one would watch the movie is in good form, but the script doesn’t allow him to exhibit his performance much. The story doesn’t allow Prabhu enough screen time either. Nikki Galrani plays the ‘naive, bubbly’ girl who believes everything about her beau. Adah Sharma plays the psychology student, who uses her degree to perform silly and weird antics. Both heroines disappoint. The biggest plus about the film is it’s 2 hour screen time.
