Karan Johar's latest movie Student Of The Year 2 has been the talk of the town for quite some time now. The movie which released recently has been a target of memes and quite frankly several valid criticisms since its first trailer dropped.

With the movie opening quite poorly at the box-office, looks like it is heading for the same path as 'Kalank' which was the biggest flop of 2019 yet. So here are 5 reasons why Student Of The Year 2 failed at the box-office -

Tiger Shroff: Typical Bollywood Macho Man - Lets's face it, Tiger Shroff's track record from Heropanti to Baaghi 2 has been good enough but these movies were solely based on catering his plus points; his dance and action movies. Sadly, we get nothing new to see as SOTY 2 is a complete Tiger Shroff film which was masked as if it was launching two new faces in the industry.

SOTY 2

Same Old Generic Music - We are sadly living in a generation where every Bollywood movie has at least one song which is a remake or a remix of an old classic. The music of SOTY 2 is no different as it gives the same old generic junk with over the top electronic beats and auto-tuned vocals. Their so-called ''chartbusters'' like The Jawaani Song or The Hook-Up song is just as stupid as their titles.

SOTY 2

Tried & Tested Story - If moviegoers even remember the story-line of the first movie besides the leads, they will probably tell you that it's almost the same as SOTY 2 except for some changes here and there. SOTY 2 has everything its prequel had, beautiful campus, attractive students who look like they have just finished a modeling shoot, men who would pick a fight to compete in a silly tournament and a sloppy love triangle. The original gave us some good songs to hum but SOTY 2 has literally nothing to offer!

SOTY 2

Lack Of Depth In Writing - One of the main problems of SOTY 2 is writing which provides no depth, nuance or layers in the characters. Each character is like caricature you had already assumed from the first look of the trailer. The superficial characters of Tiger, Ananya and Tara will make you question everything until you come to a sad conclusion that this movie is an over-hyped version of a college drama.

SOTY 2

The Idiotic Bollywood Formula - The year 2018 was like an "exhibit A" for Bollywood as the audience made it loud and clear that the typical Bollywood movies with colorful songs, high production values, and idiotic comedy sequences won't work. Movies like Andhadhun, Badhaai Ho, Tumbaad and Stree were prime examples that if filmmakers give importance to the quality, people will definitely come and watch the movies in theatres. But in spite of all that, SOTY 2 rehashed the same Bollywood formula and failed miserably.
