Kissing its fans like he has also missed them in equal proportion, DEADPOOL 2 - the sequel to the 2016 storm, the top R rated money spinner DEADPOOL returns as a kinky relief to the recent AVENGERS shock.

From the studio that killed Wolverine and helmed by one of the two guys who killed John Wick’s Dog (This is what the opening credits note say about the people behind this gruesome madness), Ryan Reynolds returns in the title role of Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool, and it’s a bloody, crazy & gleefully lampooning orgy in the R – rated genre that is sheer delight to its target audience. Helmed by David Leitch known for ATOMIC BLONDE & of course JOHN WICK otherwise what’s the point to introduce the helmer in such a whacky manner and be bang on target right from the word go.

DEADPOOL came at a time when comic book super heroes where saving the world and the industry, they where protectors, righteous and role models. It was a huge risk for Fox to back a hard core R rated satire that roasts its own X – MEN and the result was mind blowing all over. Enough reason for the franchise to come in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu in India.

It was indeed a challenge for the writers Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Reynolds to maintain the kick - ass sarcasms in a funny movie about movies, being serious in fooling around and even after knowing that all the lampooning is on us considering the fact that we have loved our super heroes and recently even went emotional during Avengers, we buy the wicked absurdity. The clichés of superhero are challenged and trolled. We accept that as the movie smartly manipulates and uses the ‘heroisms’ element from the super hero flicks and come triumph in its constant nags that ends with a giggle.

Starting from where it left, Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and his girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) are planning to have a baby and suddenly things change. Wade has to protect Russell (a fantastic Julian Dennison), a mutant teenager who has a score to settle with the orphanage headmaster (Eddie Marsan). Russell aka Firefist has to be stooped by the time travelling Cable (Josh Brolin) cause Russell ‘s action might affect Cable personally. A team by the name ‘X-Force’ is formed (quite obvious, the dig is on X – Men). The team includes Shatterstar (Lewis Tan), the acid-vomiting Zeitgeist (It's Bill Skarsgard), and the mind-bending Bedlam (Terry Crews), someone called Peter (Rob Delaney) and Domino (Zazie Beet) the ‘luck’ factor.

David Leitch makes sure that the gags keeps on coming, DEADPOOL 2 is completely cynical, a ‘meta’ movie brimmed with meta gags and somewhere a heartfelt ideology on pain makes the day. Revealing further will act as spoilers but a brief on points that makes it a deserving sequel is a must.

We cannot imagine DEADPOOL without Ryan Reynolds, he gets into the skin of this whacky anti hero with such ease is sheer brilliance. Supremely entertaining. Morena Baccarin as Wade’s fiancée is fantastic. Josh Brolin as Cable is perfect. Julian Dennison is fabulous as Firefist.

On the flip side, DEADPOOL 2 keeps on bombarding jokes, gagas, meta gags without a break at the rate of 2 jokes in a minute without bothering whether they land on target or not.

Last but not the least, especially for this part of the world, Dopinder (Karan Soni) is retained and there is again a Bollywood song in that taxi.

DEADPOOL 2 is bloody, whacky, gruesome nonstop fun, it’s a worthy sequel that stays true to the genre, satisfies the hype and confirms that whatever happened in 2016 in the name DEADPOOL, was not a fluke and to make an enjoyable R rated parody on super heroes is not a joke.

An advice, though not asked or demanded but still, when you are done with the main course (climax) of DEADPOOL 2, stay tuned for the dessert ( the end credits).
