If you have seen one, you have seen them all. That succinctly sums up Sharan’s comedic shows. It is just that spin doctors tinker with the tale to ensure that Sharan's trademark tomfoolery is ingested and indulged by audiences as an unmitigated laugh riot.

While one has no quarrel with comedies, what is roiling is that there is no method to the madness. If one puts blinkers on and suspends one's sense of disbelief, then Victory 2 is an engaging and entertaining extravaganza.

This time around, it's not just one Sharan you have to suffer. There are four whole whole Sharans, each in a different avatar. And more is NOT merrier. One is insufferable enough — four of them trying to whip up laughter with their ribald comedy is maelstrom madness.

Victory 2 brings to his die-hards a stale tale of four identical twins conveniently separated from parents and reunited at the end for a big family get-together.

Sharan tries to regale his audiences with comedy as crass, nonsensical and below-the-belt as can be.

Helping him make up this three-hour trash are villain-turned-comedian Ravishankar as Maams and Sadhu Kokila as the bumbling and blundering cop Sadhu Gowda.

Yes, there are action sequences; and no, they do not make the film any better.

Spicing up the Sharan show is a mushy and malodorous romance thrown with Sharan shaking a leg and yodelling in the company of Asmita Sood and Apoorva, as they jig and jive in designer dresses and touristy locales.

To sum up, even summing up Victory 2 would be such a waste of time. For many of course, Sharan's mad cap comedy would make the trip to the theatre worth the while.

While the makers are definitely unapologetic about this rollercoaster comedy-of-errors, disguises and melodrama.
