Haami 2 (2022) Review: Story, Performances & Analysis

Laltu Mondal (Shiboprosad Mukherjee), a sales executive at a hardware shop lives with his family including his wife Mitali (Gargee Roychowdhury) and their sons Bhepu aka Siddhartha (Ritodeep Sengupta) and Chinu aka Sugata (Shreyan Saha).

Siddhartha is a genius who can answer difficult mathematical calculations easily but Chinu is an inferior whose performance in the results makes his parents especially his mother worried. Siddhartha is getting noticed by others for his talent.

Prashanta Chakraborty (Kharaj Mukherjee), a child artist agent found Siddhartha’s talent and offered his parents to send him to reality shows which will help them earn money.

The rest of the story revolves around how the lives of Siddhartha, Laltu, Mitali, & Sugata change once Siddhartha participates in reality shows.

Nandita Roy-Shiboprosad Mukherjee directorial most of the movies talk about the relationships and other issues we generally find in our society. Haami 2 talks about the children who are sent to reality shows without caring much about their interests, physical and mental health conditions. After shooting for a good amount of time in various reality shows most of the children did not get enough time to spend with their families and to play with their friends.

This also impacts their studies and sometimes they started feeling the pressure of performing well to fulfill their parents’ expectations. The director duo deserves appreciation for bringing such a unique and relevant topic to us at this crucial time through Haami 2.

There is nothing much to talk about their direction but the dialogue in a few scenes looked a bit cliché and the second half looked quite boring with back-to-back reality show scenes. Gargee Roychowdhury looks good as Mita barring a few scenes at the beginning where she looked a bit overdramatic.

Shiboprosad Mukherjee as Laltu Mondal is the show-stealer here. His dialogue delivery, expressions, and comic timings are really good especially, his conversation with Kharaj Mukherjee will make you laugh often. Kharaj Mukherjee also delivered a noteworthy performance.

Anjan Dutt looks good as Nitai uncle but his character should have been given a bit more focus. Debutants Ritodeep Sengupta, Sritrika Chowdhuri, and Shreyan Saha will also catch your attention in a few scenes.

Guest appearances by Somak Ghosh, Haranath Chakraborty, Monami Ghosh, Tanusree Chakraborty, and Prosenjit Chatterjee looked okay.

The storytelling of the director duo Nandita Roy-Shiboprosad Mukherjee has been winning the hearts of audiences since 2011 when they directed their first movie Icche which was a commercially successful movie. After that, the director duo went on to direct movies like Hello Memsaheb, Muktodhara, Accident, Alik Sukh, Ramdhanu, Bela Seshe, Praktan, Posto, Haami, Konttho, Gotro, & Bela Shuru. Most of these movies are commercially successful and their upcoming directorial movie is Praktan 2.

Final Words:

Nandita Roy-Shiboprosad Mukherjee's directorial family drama Haami 2 is a worthy watch as it has some good elements to give you an excellent cinematic experience. Still, the second half looked a bit boring.

Haami 2 box office collection:

The box office collection of Nandita Roy-Shiboprosad Mukherjee directorial Haami 2 after 1st week is 1.86 crores.
