About Amrutha Iyenagar

Love Mocktail 2 Review

Amrutha Iyengar is an Indian actress who primarily works in Kannada films. In 2020, she will be seen in the lead roles in Love Mocktail and Popcorn Monkey Tiger.


Love Mocktail 2 contains part of what Love Mocktail fans expect, but it also addresses some more serious emotional themes. Most of them hit the correct chords here, while others miss.


Aadi, two years after his wife Nidhi's death, decides he is ready to go on and marry anew. Vijay and Sushma, his best pals, decide to assist him. But does Aadi ever find peace and move on?


Love Mocktail was a public favourite, with its nostalgic, familiar, and happy content. The sequel to this film has a difficult concept to begin with, considering the first portion ended tragically. Darling Krishna has ensured that the film maintains the same casual, breezy tone while also having a hefty dose of emotional scenes. Overall, Krishna appears to have progressed as a storyteller, since the majority of the film is narrated with ease.

The sequel opens on a serious note, with Aadi seemingly going missing and his best friends, Vijay and Sushma, attempting to locate him. The story of Aadi's adventures in finding a partner as he decides to remarry unfolds during this procedure. Along the way, one meets several eccentric individuals, like a hip matchmaker named Jankana and Sihi, who has had a thing on Aadi since she was a teenager. Amid all of this, Aadi is attempting to figure out if he can let go of his late wife, Nidhi.

The first half is a smooth ride that will have you giggling the entire time. The second part contains more dramatic scenes. To enjoy the later half of this story, one must suspend some reasoning and logic. There are also great talks and chats, such as the one Sihi's grandfather had about homemakers and how their labour goes underpaid. Then there are certain moments that are a little underwhelming, particularly in the build-up to the conclusion, which keep the picture from being near perfect. Long after watching the film, one wonders if the latter half of the second half was a cop-out rather than a confrontation with reality.

What is commendable about Krishna is how he has given most characters their due, particularly Vijay and Sushma, who portray the narrators. The casting is excellent, and Rachel David, who plays Sihi, effortlessly charms everyone. Krishna, Abhilash, and Kushi Achar are charming and entertaining characters. Milana Nagaraj looks ethereal in the film and contributes significantly to the sequel's pleasure. The music and cinematography, as well as the beautiful surroundings, contribute to the enchantment.
