It’s quite difficult to watch a sequel in isolation and not draw comparisons with the original. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 definitely falls in this category as the first one–starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan–became a stupendous hit at the box office and has attained somewhat of a cult status over the years. Cut to 2022 with Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani trying to recreate the same magic and Tabu lending an able support. There’s of course newer elements of thrill that director Anees Bazmee has instilled and introduced. It’s Aakash Kaushik’s story (he has also written the dialogues) that allows the actors a huge canvas to show different shades and perform.
