A little too long, but still retains the charm
Here's my short review of the movie -
Acting - Varun Sharma as Choocha is the highlight of the movie (as expected). However, the real highlight is Pankaj Tripathi as Panditji with his English one-liners and his interactions with Choocha. If Fukrey 3 is made, I wouldn't mind if these two were the only main characters. Rest of the cast gives a good performance, they feel like real people stuck in a bizarre situation again.
Songs - OK. The first movie's theme song is used again. The songs are mostly used in the background, which is fine, not chart busters for me.
Cinematography - Delhi is shot very well and its many sides are explored. No complaints there.
Story and direction - The most important parts of a movie. A story can be good, but in the hands of a bad director, it can suck. Thankfully this one doesn't. Director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and writer Vipul Vig have done a brilliant job. However, the movie does drag in the second half somewhat as I felt it could've been half an hour shorter. Fukrey Returns somewhat falls into the sequel trap where it tries to tell too many stories at once, I felt the first movie was still a better story because it was simple. However, it still manages to be entertaining because of the actors and writing.
TLDR; version - Choocha and (now) Panditji are awesome, rest of the cast gives a good performance, the story is good for the most part but could have been half an hour shorter, the songs are good, but not as good as the first one. 7/10
