Trailer Na Maloom Afraad 2
Farhan (Fahad Mustafa) is happily married to his love interest Naina (Urwa Hocane) and working as CEO in Shama Achaar with his brother in law Shakeel (Jawed Shaikh). One day Farhan and Shakeel receive a phone call from an off-shore “Bhai” demanding extortion money and the same night their factory catches fire. In the middle of this distressing situation they receive a call from Moon (Mohsin Abbas Haider) and he invites them to Cape Town to attend his wedding with Parri (Hania Amir). In Cape Town, also visits the Shaikh Sultan Al-Baklawah (Nayyar Ejaz) with his 24-carat gold commode; the commode is stolen and from there starts a game of cats and mice. Will Shaikh get his pot back? Will Shakeel and Farhan get rich again? Will Na Maloom Afraad 2 tickle you the way its prequel did? To get the answers, you’ll have to watch the part 2.
Performance wise Na Maloom Afraad 2 belongs to the three protagonists. Jawed Shaikh proves that he is a true showman and he is impeccable as Shakeel Bhai. Not only his dialogues are penned smartly, he delivers them with utmost hilarity. Jawed Shaikh stands tall and never misses a single element to amaze his audience in the film. Fahad Mustafa looks at home; he is confident, natural and flawless as Farhan. There are a few slightly emotional dialogues which Fahad narrates and he surprises with chameleon-like transformation. Mohsin does exactly what he did in previous installment along with that he flaunts his abs and muscles with gusto.
Nayyar Ejaz has a few scenes and he impresses as Shaikh, his diction is clap worthy. Saleem Mairaj is effective and manages a great balance in his performance. Urwa and Hania are used as eye-candies nothing major to offer in terms of performance or dialogues. Sadaf Kanwal sizzles in Kaif-o-Suroor, although the choreography is a bit weak.
Kaif-o-Suroo – Na Maloom Afraad 2
Script of Na Maloom Afraad 2 is nice but not the best. Unfortunately dialogues don’t leave much of any impression due to weak recall value. They do have the tendency to make audience laugh, huge credit goes to the superlative performances but all in all the “Kick” is missing in Na Maloom Afraad 2. Songs are weakest and don’t offer any repeat value. Direction is strictly okay. On the whole, Na Maloom Afraad 2 is an entertaining film which will not be remembered the way its prequel is recalled.
