Tum Bin 2 is an old story retold in a changed milieu. Taran (Neha Sharma) is disconsolate after the untimely death of her beau, Amar (Ashim Gulati). She goes into a depression until a knight in shining armour , Shekhar ( Aditya Seal) lifts her from her self inflicted misery. Things seem to go very well initially but there is a twist in the tale; fate twists its knife somewhere in Neha’s life.
Directed by Abhinav Sinha, Tum Bin 2 is a sequel to its earlier version Tum Bin produced more than 15 years back. The story line remains similar, the underlying emotion of melancholy stays in the sequel so what is the USP of Tum Bin 2?
We find it difficult to accept that the current generation that swears by Tinder can get swayed by magnificent words such as love and sacrifice.
Performance wise, Tum Bin 2 has been single handedly carried by Aditya Seal. Seal as Shekhar impresses the audience with his unstated performance and we hope that he does he really does well in his career. Neha Sharma with her wooden looks fails to rise to the occasion; this role was tailor made for her. Amar as Ashim Gulati has been wasted in this movie.
Do we see an echo of Khamoshi in Tum Bin 2? The stories of the two movies are too identical to be brushed aside as sheer coincidence.
We wish the screenplay of Tum Bin 2 could have been done better. While the first half is intriguing and arresting, the second half meanders. It seems the director has lost his plot towards the end of the movie.
Some of the movie songs of Tum Bin 2 have started making waves even before the release of the movie.The one rendered by Jagjit Singh is such a delight. Koi Fariyaad has such a haunting feel to it.
A surprise package of Tum Bin 2 is Kanwaljit.
Our advice- watch this movie if you still value the old world values of love, sacrifice and loyalty.
