What It Concerns:

Sunflower 2 shows advance the plot in a similar way to actual film sequels (like the Krish franchise) or web series (like Undekhi, and Maharani) that do the same. Essentially, this is a murder mystery that takes place in a Mumbai housing society full of colorful personalities who are hypocritical and have double standards. This mystery, in which one of the apartment owners, a wealthy lecher named Kapoor (Ashwin Kaushal), is found dead from poisoning while separated from his wife Naina (Shonali Nagrani), packs too much information.

A convoluted story unfolds with numerous persons acting suspiciously while the police pursue the culprit. Nonetheless, there are some undercurrents and twists among the numerous diverse dramatis personae, as proof emerges, only to be called into doubt or even rejected. During the season, Rosie (Adah Sharma), a gorgeous and carefree bar dancer, joins the group as a new member. However, there is reason to suspect Rosie, as Kapoor has left her the Rs. 14 crore apartment.

Sunflower 2 Examining the script:

As with this season, writers Surya Menen and Jasmeet Singh Bhatia arrive late and are unable to handle the highly complicated and, more crucially, jumbled plot of the previous season and the murder. As the first season came to an end, Sonu (Sunil Grover), the main suspect because he was obsessed with chemicals and his irrational, carefree, and humorous demeanor, was abducted for an unspecified reason.

Sonu now returns to his key position as a suspect as well as the residential society. However, what follows is a frantically haphazard examination of numerous characters, each with their unique quirks and secrets. The obvious moments of the Ahuja couple’s broken relationship (Mukul Chadda and Radha Bhatt) appear overdone, particularly in the animosity she

Even though all of these are meant to be intentional strategies to improve the whodunit’s substance, the writers wind up cramming too much into this patchwork of a story, and by the fourth of eight episodes, you’re left hoping there’s just one more to go. The tiresomeness quotient is increased by side issues such as the Ahujas’ problems, the drawn-out story of the eye that was gouged out of Kapoor’s corpse in the morgue, the society secretary Iyer’s (Ashish Vidyarthi) nearly triple rather than double standards (! ), and the sub-inspector Tambe (Girish Kulkarni) and his supervisor who regularly drink while on duty in their car.

When it does arrive, the finale is incredibly underwhelming, overly simple, and has been hastily crafted to finish the narrative. The fates of characters such as Mr. Iyer, the nosy servant Kaminibai (Annapurna Soni), the Ahujas, and the only other truly fascinating character in the never-ending story, are never known. Like logic and the script’s captivating quality, Sonu is also left behind in a lot of ways. The convolutions never seem to end, and ennui sets in.

Sunflower 2 Star Performance:

As previously stated, the only genuinely captivating and attention-grabbing character in this story is the cunning and curious Kamini Bai, played expertly by Annapurna Soni. Among the other characters, she effortlessly exerts dominance. Although Sunil Grover plays a weird role that seems out of place, he does fine. His expressions were a little too self-conscious at times. Adah Sharma is her typical passionate self, all huge eyes, smiles that take your breath away, and bindaas attitude.

Ranvir Shorey’s glassy eyes and poker face struck a chord with me, and Girish Kulkarni, who plays sub-inspector Chetan Tambe, creates an impression with his serious but unimpressive demeanor. Bravo also to the two performers who played the Ahujas earlier on, especially Mukul Chadha, and to Ashish Vidyarthi for his role as the sleazy old man and Aanchal, respectively. A special mention goes to the actor who plays the society watchman so naturally.

What Is Ineffective:

Despite his best efforts, director Navin Gujral is unable to hold the attention of his audience through humor or an inquisitive perspective. If he is a successful filmmaker at all, it will be because he gets his actors to give excellent to outstanding performances and shows how moral decay may exist beneath the surface of so many so-called “respectable” housing societies.

The filmmaker rushes through several juicy plot twists in an attempt to show off another investigational viewpoint, but he is unable to capitalize on them. Additionally, he falls short of fully capturing the phony relationships that permeate this overly dramatic story. Quick editing of sequences that look promising is a common source of trouble.

Aside from lengthy sequences that are unrelated to the climactic climax, there are two other excesses: the absurd scenario in which Sonu is brought to the police station just wearing a towel, and the bizarre robe, kimono, or whatever else Mr. Ahuja is eventually forced to wear. The balloon expands, and the spectator is left feeling unfulfilled by the pinprick’s remedy.

Final Thoughts:

All things considered, this is an excellent illustration of a program designed to appeal to those who are not picky about the kind of entertainment they keep in their homes. It doesn’t meet the essential criteria for a whodunit, such as a grip, a study of human psychology, or cleverly stimulating the audience to alternate between their theories about who “did it.” The enormous length, pointless video of unrelated subjects, and attempts to make light of everything—mostly with one-liners that are hilarious barely once or twice per episode—cloud everything.
