student of the year 2 songs Student of the Year 2 movie review: SOTY 2 stars Ananya Panday, Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria.

After its prequel gave us actors like Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, Student of the Year 2 will see another fresh batch entering Saint Teresa’s College. The Karan Johar production marks the acting debut of Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria. The film, also starring Tiger Shroff, has been directed by Punit Malhotra.

While Ananya is actor Chunkey Panday’s daughter, we have seen Tara as a child artist in Disney India’s Big Bada Boom and sitcoms The Suite Life of Karan & Kabir and Oye Jassie. And giving company to these two girls is Tiger, who is working in a Dharma Productions’ film for the first time.

Sharing his experience of working in Student of the Year 2, Tiger had said, “I am very glad that I got a chance to work on Student of Year 2. It has been a different world for me altogether. It is a very different character too. I am not Superman. You punch me and I bleed. It is not like I am indestructible. It was a great film to work on and I would like to thank Karan (Johar) sir and Punit (Malhotra) sir for holding my hand through every scene. I would say it was a breather. A light and fun experience.”

Student of the Year 2: Our verdict

The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 1.5 stars and wrote in her review, "SOTY 2 is a sequel to the first 2012 edition, and it doesn’t even bother refreshing the template: everything is dispiritedly familiar. And that is precisely the problem: despite the presence of singing-dancing-fighting hotstar Tiger Shroff, two brand new female leads, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday, and a whole new set of ‘teachers’, this part two comes off choppy and jaded."

Student of the Year 2: Our verdict

The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 1.5 stars and wrote in her review, "The running time is too long for what is, essentially, yet-another-buffed-up-version of Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander crossed with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. This class of 2019 has predictable beats, which is to be expected in an underdog story, but that it is so stilted is disappointing."

Speaking about the song, Tiger said, "It is a different sort of a song that I have shot. Personally, I have not done something like that before. Working with Alia was an amazing experience."

On getting to shake a leg with Alia, he added, "Though she is such a big star, she was so easy to work with. She was so open and hardworking on set, even after achieving so much. It was really inspiring being around her."
