Student Of The Year 2 (2019) Reviews
Cast: Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria, Ananya Panday
Director: Punit Malhotra
Rating: 3.5/5

No one does glitz and glamour like Bollywood. Even when there's no need for it.

The trailer of Student Of The Year 2 promises a story brimming with high school drama, nail-biting fights, confusing love triangles, lots of synchronised dancing and a healthy dose of cliche.
The fundamental plot of the film appears to be similar to its 2012 counterpart (see my review here), save for the fact that, now, we see two girls fighting over one boy. In the first film, it was the opposite.The trailer opens with the principal of St Teresa High School declaring their annual competition, The Dignity Cup, open.

We see the introduction of the three protagonists: Rohan, the aforementioned love interest of two popular girls, and St Teresa's primary competitor for the Dignity Cup, played by Tiger Shroff.We meet Mia, played by Tara Sutaria, who is Rohan's #1 fan and Shreya, played by Ananya Pandey, who is Rohan's nemesis-turned-admirer.While the cast and their acting looks promising enough, the storyline – not so much.

The trailer boasts several fight scenes, where Tiger showcases his fancy stunt moves and washboard abs, but why? Eighteen to 21-year-old kids neither look nor act like Tiger Shroff, resorting to high-flying, superhero kicks to knock out their enemies when faced with adversity.

The casting of Tiger Shroff was clearly meant to bring that exciting element of action into this otherwise chick flick, but I really didn't like the way that seems to be integrated into the story.The trailer has several shots where Tiger Shroff is taunted and brutally beaten by, who I assume to be are, his opponents in the Dignity Cup competition.

This sparks a fierce and ambitious fire in him and he begins to train for the competition. A training that involves him getting back at his opponents and roughing them up.This concept of violence has become so commonplace in films these days, that you won't even notice how subtly they normalise bullying.

The target audience of the film is very clearly teens and young adults, who tend to be more impressionable than they realise.Issues like first love, peer pressure and bullying are paramount at that age.
