Sunflower S2 Critic Review:

The “best employee” and the “best salesman” is back at Sunflower Housing Society, intact are his OCD and his tendency to pakao, to buttonhole and bore the listener with longwinded deliberations on oxymorons, rhetorical questions and kidnap stories. Sonu Singh (Sunil Grover), missing since the death of businessman Raj Kapoor (Ashwin Kaushal), has returned to explode the theory of Inspector Digendra alias DG (Ranvir Shorey) and assistant Chetan Tambe (Girish Kulkarni) that he murdered his wayward neighbour.

And so the investigation continues.

Into the sea of familiar members of the society including dodgy housemaid Kamini bai (Annapurna Soni) and the strange Ahujas who address each other as Mr Ahuja (Mukul Chadda) and Mrs Ahuja (Radha Bhatt), walks bar dancer Rosie Mehta (Adah Sharma). In an uncharacteristic response, sanskari chairman of the society, Dilip Iyer (Ashish Vidyarthi) speaks up for Rosie and finds all her documents in perfect order to move into Kapoor’s flat. 

There’s a further blast of the idiosyncrasies of each member. While the first season was annoying for the most part, show creator Vikas Bahl and director Navin Gujral mix humour and intrigue better this time around.

Everybody’s a suspect. Everybody has a motive. So who killed Kapoor? The dead man’s estranged wife (Shonali Nagrani) too, isn’t out of the picture.

Using flashbacks of Kapoor’s shenanigans to move forward each suspect’s track, Gujral keeps you guessing.

Kapoor’s eye, prised out of his body, is missing.

The coconut water that was intended to kill Kapoor has its own story.

What’s the connection between Rosie, the housemaid, the estranged wife and Sonu whose naivete is being preyed upon to draw him into a web?

Although tracks like DG and the Ahujas are unnecessarily stretched, there’s much to amuse too. Ranvir Shorey as the straight-faced, specs-wearing listener and Girish Kulkarni as the garrulous interjector have likeable chemistry, their banter over clothes or chatting over vada-paav, carried out in perfect sync. DG literally smelling a rat is clever.

The cast comes up with credible performances but Adah Sharma with several shades and Sunil Grover in a difficult-to-decipher role, elevate the thriller. The end comes with an unexpected thud but also sets the mood for a few more surprises next season.

Sunflower S2- Watch it or Not: Harmless humour with a guessing game is pretty good for a weekend watch.

Sunflower S2 Score Rating: 2.5 out of 5
