It is a sequel of Love Mocktail that was released on January 31, 2020.

Let us analyse

The film Love Mocktail 2 begins with two well-wishers of Aadi (Darling Krishna) going to Sadashivanagar Police Station in Bengaluru to lodge a missing complaint. They complain to the police inspector that their friend Aadi is missing for two days. As expected, the police inspector asks them to give the background of their friend. They explain to the police inspector how their friend got married to Nidhi (Milana Nagaraj) and how they became depressed after Nidhi died of cancer.

They also explain to the police inspector how they approached a matchmaker to find a suitable girl for Aadi. Later, they also explain how Aadi was in love with Joshitha alias Jo (Amrutha Iyengar) and Aditi (Rachana Inder) and how they finally fall in love with Sihi (Rachel David). What happens to Aadi and Sihi is the climax.

Artistes’ performance

Darling Krishna, as a depressed as well as innocent person who asks silly questions, has acted well. His dialogue delivery and body language deserve appreciation. Abhilash and Kushi Achar, as a couple who are ever ready to quarrel, are good. Milina Nagaraj is charming. Rachel David is the best among the star cast in this movie. Her body language and dialogue delivery are superb. Her performance in the climax scene is very good. Cinematographer Sri Crazyminds has done an excellent job behind the camera.

Drawbacks

Major portion of the movie during the post-intermission revolves around the hero's imagination. These scenes are far from convincing. Dialogues between Sihi’s grandfather and hero highlight the importance of homemakers’ contribution in the well being of family members. The police station scene is also not up to the mark.

Analysis

Director Darling Krishna has handled the megaphone with aplomb apart from playing the lead role. His specialty is ensuring equal screen space for all artists.

Bottom line: It is a must watch for those who have watched Love Mocktail. For others, Love Mocktail2 is worth watching provided they cope with a few illogical and unconvincing dialogues and scenes.
