One tends to be choosy about friends, food, books and films. Thus, less number of film reviews on my blog. If I am not impressed with the movie, I won’t review it. So, you can understand that I liked the movie. Rony 2 is a noble attempt in terms of its story and the sociological angle. While the last instalment dealt with the aspect of loneliness in urban areas like Kolkata, Rony 2 dives further ahead. Om, the little guy essaying the titular role of Rony amazes me once again. The last review was about your calibre and you have done it once again over here. Sweta Tiwari, who essays the role of Rony’s mother is a surprise package. She seems to be very confident with her facial expressions especially when she looks towards the floor and takes her own time to introspect her son’s psyche.
Rony seems to be a very matured individual who wants to donate his materialistic stuff to an orphanage and after visiting the same, he realises the special children over there are hungry for love and attention and there is hardly ant difference between them and Rony. Ah, remember the song by Blue. “One Love is all we need.”
Rony 2 surpasses Rony in terms of technicalities like cinematography, music, background score and direction. Acting and screenplay have always been a strong point in Arijit Mukherjee’s films and they didn’t disappoint. All in all, it is a family movie with a great statement about nuclear families in Metropolitan cities. Above everything, it is an honest attempt to visualise the authentic pen-picture of people who are getting busy with careers and ignoring the warmth of near and dear ones.
Rating – 8/10
A feel-good script
Crisp screenplay and editing
Great acting by Om, Sweta Tiwari and the guy in the orphanage who paints well.
The sweet camaraderie between Title and Rony
The scene where Rony watches a small child having some nice time the grandmother and Rony feels the emptiness in his life
The shift between Hindi, Bengali and English in the screenplay, that is how an educated Urban Families talk, scream, shout among others.
Rony needed more silence in a few scenes, rather than dialogues which could have been avoided.
