Cheeni 2 (2023) Review:

Director Mainak Bhaumik's most recent family drama, Cheeni 2, featuring Madhumita Sarcar and Aparajita Adhya in the lead roles, was released in theaters on 11th August 2023.

The narrative of the Bengali movie Cheeni 2 centers around Cheeni (Madhumita Sarcar), a person who has been largely overlooked by nearly everyone, including her father, since her childhood. Recognizing the importance of self-love, she eschews the pursuit of genuine romantic love and instead embarks on a series of casual dates, ending these relationships after a certain period.

Mishti (Aparajita Adhya), the daughter of Cheeni's landlady (Lily Chakraborty), finds herself dissatisfied with her married life. She harbors suspicions that her husband, Subho (Anirban Chakrabarti), no longer loves her and may be interested in other women. As Cheeni and Mishti share their respective life struggles, a strong friendship develops between them over time.

Cheeni crosses paths with Samrat, also known as Sammy (Soumya Mukherjee), and their affection for one another deepens gradually. However, the story takes an unexpected turn towards the end, unnecessarily elongating the plot. The question remains: Will Cheeni eventually marry Samrat?

Cheeni 2 departs from the typical style associated with Mainak Bhaumik's films. With the exception of a handful of comedic scenes, the movie falls short in terms of leaving a strong impression. The chemistry between Madhumita Sarcar and Aparajita Adhya, Madhumita Sarcar, and Soumya Mukherjee, and Aparajita Adhya and Anirban Chakrabarti lacks the necessary development and often comes across as contrived.

The film suffers from inadequate writing and character development, resulting in a lack of engagement. While Aparajita Adhya shines in select scenes, Madhumita Sarcar, Anirban Chakrabarti, and Soumya Mukherjee fail to make a compelling impact with their respective portrayals.

Aside from Debdut Ghosh's portrayal of Principal Rana Banerjee, Apratim Chatterjee, and Pinki Banerjee also make appearances in cameo roles.
