Though in Marathi Film Industry, there was no trend of making sequels, however, of late, the idea of making sequels in this industry seems to be a visible trend. The movies like Zapatlela 2 and now TimePass 2 are the classic examples to this trend. The movie Timepass 2 is directed by Ravi Jadhav, while produced by Nitin Keni, Maghnana Jadhav and Nikhil Sane under the banner of Zee Talkies. The key cast of the film includes Priyadarshan Jadhav, Priya Bapat, Prathamesh Parab, Ketaki Mategaonkar, etc, while the story for the film comes from Ravi Jadhav, Kshitij Patwardhan, Priyadarshan Jadhav. After its first part releasing last year, Timepass 2 is hitting today; now, let’s dig deep into the film to get the crux of the same.
Now, if we talk about the plot of the movie, the story revolves around the same teenage love seen in between Dagadu played by Prathamesh Parab and Prajakta played by Ketaki Mategaonkar, also starring Bhalchandra Kadam and Vaibhav Mangle, however, the original freshness of the story is being replaced by the father daughter sentiments, which seems to be unnecessary breaking the nerve of the film. The main lead Dagdu is no more a teenager but a grown up guy who has turned a hero in his neighborhood doing all the Tapori acts. On the other side, Prajakta is seen living with his father in the interiors of Konkan and talking about Dagdu’s cousin, he seems old yet unbeatable. He is the man who plays the central part when he receives a nuisance letter keeping it secret inside his draw till the family loosely connected to each other is seen sorting out the issues together.
Soon, you find Prajakta moving to Mumbai to pursue her dreams and does something big in the city of dreams, however, in her hearts, she still loves Dagdu and waiting for his love to bring her back in his life. On the other hand, Dagdu is still single and waiting for Prajakata who is his childhood love. So big question here, whether the childhood love he had was a time pass or something really serious, which is ironically being answered without ambiguity. However, what goes strange is when Dagdu is seen walking in a new avatar suited booted like an educated guy to impress and win over Shaakal. Meanwhile, Praju who seems to have done big in the city of Mumbai seems to be an item girl called Urvashi. The educated girl treading this rot path is answered much later. Soon, you find Urvashi returning to Praju meeting Dagdu and soon everything the two turns better reviving the lost love between the two.
However, Praju’s father still consider education to be the prime qualification to embrace any guy as life partner wherein Dagdu seems to be lagging behind. The couple plans to deceives the so called notion of Praju’s father until they are intervened by Dagdu’s father who is an auto rickshaw driver. He decides to meet Praju’s father and thus goes at her home to convince her stubborn father who shows the door to Dagdu’s father humiliating him and his son. Thus begins the melodrama between Praju and his father. Dagdu despite being uncultured and uneducated rejects the idea of fleeing away and getting married until he gets the blessings of Praju’s father. This can somewhere give you the storyline of DDLJ wherein SRK is seen treading the same path until he gets his Simran from her father. So, how things would be sorted out, well, be prepared to catch up the dramatic conclusion coming with some spice of humor in it.
Timepass 2 Review – Last Word
As far as performances are concerned, all the actors in the main leads of Dagdu, Prajakta and her father were incredible. They have expressed the intense emotions be in humor or the melodrama with utter dexterity especially if we talk about the man playing the character of Prajata’s father. As far as the other elements are concerned, which include music, screenplay, editing and other technicalities, they seems okay though not par that gives enough rooms for improvement. All in all in terms of performance and a story of melodrama the movie is okay, yet lags behind in terms of originality and freshness as evident in the first part, hence a rating of 3.0 can suffice.
