SOTY 2 Critic Reviews & Ratings

Overall, this chapter doesn’t have much of that ishq wala love, but there is ample dosti, kabaddi and cool stuff to keep you going.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-2/5
Student of the Year 2 is both predictable, and far from original. Unlike the previous instalment this one isn’t grounded in emotion, so it’s hard to be invested in the characters or affected by their conflicts.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-1.5/5
SOTY 2 flunks every test on the parameters of both writing and crafting. For a genuine lover of Hindi popular cinema, it is more trauma than drama.

This class of 2019 has predictable beats, which is to be expected in an underdog story, but that it is so stilted is disappointing.

The film lacks drama, conflict and narrative tension, with dialogues written for mannequins.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-2/5
The sequel that nobody wanted is neither an improvement over the original nor a downgrade of it. The bar is low to begin with, and when the butter-limbed Tiger Shroff is around, it’s easily surmounted.

Punit gets the designer porn bang on but the drama and emotion is sorely missing.  Any hurdles that the plot sets up are smoothed over in a few scenes.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-1.5/5
The pace is wobbly. The plot is trite. The humour -- The Flying Jatt, Krrish jokes show some fleeting potential -- falls flat. And the opulence is clumsily conveyed.

  • DNA | Review By - Meena Iyer | Rating-3/5
Apart from Will Smith's miss-if-you-blink appearance, watch SOTY (2) for Tiger.  Even when things around him are caving in, his ballerina grace is intact.  One star in the rating is reserved for Tiger.

SOTY 2 culminates in a sports film, which could be slotted as Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar meets Riverdale meets Dehradun Fashion Week.

On the whole, STUDENT OF THE YEAR 2 is an entertaining and an enjoyable fare which will strike a chord in the audience’s hearts.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-2.5/5
The ending is painfully predictable and how far can good looks take you in a film? Watch this to get a fair idea.
