Director Anubhav Sinha's Tum Bin 2 comes 15 years after the first one (Tum Bin) and is an instant throwback to that era, story-line and emotions. In fact, the tag line, “Love will find a way...yet again” also suggests that it's in the continuation of the first one. But this sequel, it seems is over stretched and superfluous that never strikes the heart even once! It is an over-the- top sequel of a successful romantic saga.
This Bollywood drama movie follows the original plot from the prequel and does not step away even an inch! Tum Bin 2 is the story of Amar (Aashim Gulati) and Taran (Neha Sharma), who are a soon-to- be married happy couple. The film starts off with the couple on a skiing vacation and no prizes for guess, Amar meets with an accident in the air and is presumed dead. Taran grieves and mopes and joining her in this grief are Amar’s “papaji” (Kanwaljit Singh) and her two sisters. Then one day a young man, Shekhar (Aditya Seal) enters their life and things start to change. He is charming, handsome and helpful, and in no time, he wins over their hearts and becomes family. A special connection soon starts blooming between Shekhar and Taran. But, soon some things get revealed one after other and this happily ever after story seems like a far-stretched reality.
In this new Bollywood movie, everything from story to dialogues to location seem old, copied as-it- is from the prequel. Just like Sandali Sinha, Neha Sharma also fails to impress with her acting skills. She is easy on the eyes but way too wooden to evoke an emotion. The popular TV actor, Aashim Gulati makes his debut on the big screen with Tum Bin 2 and he doesn't disappoint as Amar. But just like Rakesh Vashisth from the prequel, he too has a very small screen presence. It is Aditya Seal (Shekhar) who single-handedly drives this movie on his shoulder. Just like Priyanshu Chatterjee from the first part, he is the soul of Tum Bin 2.
Like the original one, the USP of Tum Bin 2 is its soulful and melodious music. Composed by Ankit Tiwari and Nikhil Vinay, every song in the movie touches your heart. But even then not a single new track manages to beat Jagjit Singh’s Koi Fariyaad, even if it’s the revamped version.
