‘Zimma 2’, the sequel to the earlier hit, has once again seven people going on a trip together. However, this time around two new characters are seen in this film. One of them is Nirmala’s daughter-in-law Tanya (Rinku Rajguru) and the other is Vaishali’s niece Manali (Shivani Surve). This trip is taken to celebrate Indu’s 75th birthday. For this, the Lake District in the UK has been chosen.
Strangers met on a trip sometimes become lifelong companions. When we set out to watch the film, we also saw ourselves anew while spending time with the old as well as the youngest of the tourists. Kritika (Saili Sanjeev) is married to her boyfriend and runs a bed and breakfast hotel with her partner Dear Alistair in the Lake District. Kritika invites everyone for a trip to celebrate Suhas Joshi’s (Indu) birthday. When everyone gets together, automatically there will be fights, disagreements, parties and riots, especially amongst women of all ages!
The song ‘Punha Zimma’ has also doubled in color. Kshitij Patwardhan has penned the lyrics for this stunning song with music by Amitraj. The energetic voice of Vaishali Samant and Preksha Dandekar has lent this wonderful song an additional grace of its own.
Spending time with each other starts their journey of self-discovery once again. What happens after the seven people come together is what the crux of the emotional tale is all about. Sonalee Kulkarni and Mrinmayi Godbole of the earlier film have now been replaced by two new characters Rinku Rajguru and Shivani Surve in the sequel, which is engrossingly emotional to the core.
Rinku, who is seen on the big screen after a long time of absence plays the role of Nirmala’s daughter-in-law very well and the pairing of the two makes us laugh out loud throughout the film. Rinku and Nirmiti have amazing chemistry. Both look perfect for each other as mother-in-law – daughter-in-law. This new mother-in-law pair leaves a good impact Shivani has also done justice to her role as Vaishali’s niece.
Suhas Joshi, Kshithi Jog, like in the first part, have played women of different ages and situations very well. Hemant Dhome and Iravati Karnik have woven a beautiful story, which keeps you engrossed right from the beginning till the abrupt ending. Saili Sanjeev has done a great job. Siddharth Chandekar’s handling of all these women as Kabir is effortless.
