So, the Student of the Year 2 trailer has been watched. The new batch has been introduced and now, we cannot stop thinking about it. The second on-screen academic year sees Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday sing, create drama and indulge in a complicated love triangle while the Student of the Year trophy forms the climax of the movie. The trailer has shared a glimpse of the plot and the scenes find uncanny resemblances to previous Bollywood movies. Obviously, it will borrow the theme of Student of the Year (2012) starring Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. But there were so many other movies that crossed our mind while watching Student of the Year 2 trailer.
Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar:
Let’s put the most in-your-face reference out in the open first. Raise your hand if you felt that SOTY 2’s trailer reminded you of a fancier version of Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar. The Aamir Khan movie and SOTY 2 seem like they share an eerily similar plotline. Two different schools, a love triangle (SOTY 2’s seems more complicated) and one competition that ends with a race. Tell me, didn’t you feel it as well?
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai:
The movie’s trailer also took us back to 1998 when Kuch Kuch Hota Hai released. The Shah Rukh Khan, Rani Mukerji and Kajol starrer might have inspired the complicated love story between Tiger, Ananya and Tara – just giving it a modern twist. Tara has the aura of Rani’s Tina from K2H2. Don’t you think?
High School Musical:
Speaking of Tara, she still has her Disney roots intact and it is evident in the trailer. The scene where she’s introduced reminded us so much of the many Disney shows and movies, especially High School Musical.
Lage Raho Munna Bhai:
But one thing we couldn’t ignore was the way the trailer began. We were caught off-guard when Samir Soni greets everyone with a “Good Morning” that we once saw in Lage Raho Munna Bhai.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham:
Don’t call us out for watching too many Karan Johar movies because SOTY 2 does take us back to Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham as well. Especially when we watched Ananya. We couldn’t help but remember Hrithik and Kareena’s sweet banter in the second half of K3G when we saw Ananya and Tiger meet in the SOTY 2 trailer.
Baaghi 2 and Heropanti:
Oh, oh, oh! Tiger! We almost forgot! Didn’t his sequences in the trailer remind you of may be every Tiger Shroff movie we’ve ever seen? Right from Heropanti to Baaghi 2, you name it and we were probably screaming those names while watching the SOTY 2 trailer.
Main Tera Hero:
Last, but mostly not the least, Student of the Year 2 trailer got us remembering Varun Dhawan’s Main Tera Hero. The first half of the movie was set in a college. Sequences showcasing Tiger exploring the campus and flaunting his swag reminded us of Varun doing similar scenes in the movie.
