Student of the Year 2 is an upcoming film starring Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday. It is directed by Punit Malhotra and is the sequel of Student of the Year 1 which marked the debut of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and was directed by Karan Johar himself. Many are wondering if the sequel will do as well as the original and do for newcomers Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday what the initial film did for then-newcomers Siddharth, Varun and Alia.
Here are some reasons why it might just turn out to be the hit they are looking for.
1. Tiger Shroff’s dancing and fighting skills are the film’s mainstay. He breezes through the film with a sharp instinct for giving the audience what they expect from him. He is the consummate entertainer.
2. Nowhere does Part 2, try to emulate Part 1 of Student Of The Year. Yes, the campus’ campy splashiness is identical in both. But this is the posh elitist college St Teresa’s according to Puneet Malhotra. That was St Teresa's according to Karan Johar.
3. Do not, repeat, do not look for Alia Bhatt in either of the two new Student recruits Ananya Pandey and Tara Sutaria. Both these new girls are chic confident and winsome in their own right. But an Alia happens once in a blue moon.
4. But don’t worry Tiger Shroff won’t let you miss Varun Dhawan or Siddharth Malhotra. If the two newcomers in SOTY 1 were appealing. Tiger combines the individual appeal of the two. And then some more. Mark my words. SOTY2 will take this Tiger cub’s stardom to the next level.
5. It’s been a while since we had a campus romance. In fact, Karan Johar is the only producer who keeps revisiting that territory, from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (the Poo-Hrithik portions) to Student Of Year and now its sequel.
6. Ah, and that one winning music track, a blast from the past. SOTY had Nazia Haasan’s Disco Deewane. SOTY 2 has Yeh jawani hai deewani, Kishore Kumar’s blockbuster tune filmed on Randhir Kapoor in the 1972 hit Jawani Deewani which was also the title of a Karan Johar production featuring Randhir’s nephew Ranbir Kapoor.
7. SOTY 2 is welcome because the Avengers craze is waning now. While Avengers wiped out another Karan Johar production Kalank, Student Of TheYear 2 may succeed in diminishing Avengers’ momentum. Miracles do happen.
