The film lives up to its title and deep-fries your Bheja. Two much!

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Bheja Fry 2.Bheja Fry 2 is not a kind of film that warrants you to leave the brains at home. So, I did lug around my Bheja to the theatre only to have it scooped out of the skull and deep-fried with the Vinay Pathak sillies, and a seasoning of Minissha turmeric and Menon cinnamon. The end result was anything but lip-smacking. How? Read on...!
So the ‘original idiot’ Bharat Bhushan (Vinay Pathak) is back, and he’s not rounding up the tax evaders but, true to his nature, molesting the memorable melodies of Shankar Jaikishan and S.D. Burman. He wins a TV quiz show after correctly answering ‘brain-wracking’ questions like “how many percent of Indian men don’t wear underwear?” and, as a reward, goes on a cruise trip with the show’s co-ordinator Ranjini (Minissha Lamba).
On the other hand, Ajit Talwar (Kay Kay Menon) is a fraudulent businessman milking his wife’s wealth and sleeping around with his secretary. He’s got such a roving eye that the thought of an imminent tax raid at his office doesn’t distract him from eye-scanning the derriere of the hot chick passing by.
Bhushan and Talwar wind up on the same cruise with the latter mistakenly thinking that Bhushan is a tax sleuth out to nab him. Worse still, they are later stranded together on a secluded island inhabited by none more than a trouser-stealing monkey and a crackpot photographer (Amol Gupte) with a thing for his dead mother’s antiquated radio.
Madness and mayhem follow as Talwar -- stripped off his chaddi (but not pants, thankfully) -- runs from pillar to post to find a way out of the island, even as Bhushan revels in his musical genius and croons away the ravaged versions of “Aa, Laut Ke Aa!”, “Maine Tere Liye Jag Chhoda”, “Mere Saajan Hain Uss Paar” and many other classics that you thought were gems until you heard Bhushan sing them. And honestly, after a while, Bhushan’s cacophonic renditions cease to amuse, as do Talwar’s glorious misfortune of being stranded with him on the island.
