We all do it, we sit in front of the TV, stick on Netflix and just want to watch something that makes you laugh, we want to forget the ill’s of the world for two hours and lose ourselves in the moment. Carry on Jatta was perfect for that, the one liners, the unexpected (yet expected) twists all had us in fits of laughter, so it was with that thought of losing myself, that I wrapped up my parota in foil with some dahi and trotted off to the local multiplex to indulge myself in Carry On Jatta 2.
Carry on Jatta 2 features some real heavyweights from Punjabi’s comedy scene Jaswinder Bhalla, Gurpreet Ghuggi, Binnu Dhillon, Karamjit Anmol, BN Sharma, and they do not disappoint, Carry On Jatta 2 has a great pace and the laughter never ceases, the whims of each character really shine through.
Carry on Jatta 2, needed to be as good as part 1, and you know what? I think it has managed to live up to the hype and expectations from the public, time will tell if it becomes a cult classic like the first one, but this will get people watching, and rightly so.
The script and dialogue are what you expect from a Punjabi comedy movie, but it is the pace that impresses, the comedy never stops, and gags are flying at a great pace, which see’s you the watcher fully immerse yourself in the film, and that is what you want. In-fact I enjoyed it that much, my foil wrapped parota’s stayed wrapped. As I just did not want to take my eyes of the screen for a minute.
Sonam Bajwa, for us was a real stand out, her recent roles, have seen her drift from the public’s conciseness and she needed a big performance to change the sway of public opinion, and I feel she has managed turn things around with this performance.
Gippy is Gippy, you know what you are going to get with him, he is actually a singer who can act, and has proved that again and again, this was a risky move for Gippy as he could have undone a lot of work if he failed to pull this role off, but fair play Gippy delivers.
If you are going to watch Carry on Jatta 2, here is a bit of advice, turn off your phone, make sure the mind is blank and only then will you fully grasp the full humour of this sequel to a cult classic. Well worth a visit to the cinema with the family, great job all round.
