Without wasting a single second immediately i watched 2nd film of Borat(The subsequent Moviefilm), after watching it's 1st part. Now this time my expectation level became so high...i was tremendously excited for this one. And again he did it...Borat again became successful to portray an exposal satire about their culture, true face of society. He is truly magnificent, I really don't know how much gut he has.
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is a 2020 American mockumentary film directed by Jason Woliner in his feature directorial debut. The film stars Sacha Baron Cohen as the fictional Kazakh journalist (television personality Borat Sagdiyev), and Maria Bakalova as his daughter Tutar, who is to be offered as a bride to Vice President Mike Pence during the COVID-19 pandemic. Where as it's predecessor manages to introduce Borat as a chaotic funny character who is drowned in bigorty and superstition, here in 2nd part all of his ability as well as funny appearance are used for questioning our society, holds a mirror infront of us.
Not only that in this film we get many new approaches, many layerings n subplots to progress Borat's story. Like beautifuly establishing relationships between Borat and his only daughter Tutar, as well as inspite of believing in his male dominated backdated society in his country Borat's transformation from a superstitious character to a feminist hero is outstanding, how Borat's thoughts about Jews are changed, moreover his influence in America's political status is also well developed. One more thing as expected film's comedy is unbelievably unique..curcumstancial comedy is funny enough that u cannot stop laughing! Some comedy scenes are deep, layered like comedy about women's issues, feminism...some comedy are dumb, some are intelligently handled that creates contradictory thoughts in everyone's mind like making fun regarding political issues as well as Borat's thought about Jews. And the ending!!! What a twist man, i didn't expect a plot twist from A Borat movie... most unexpected twist of any film of this year. I don't understand how is it possible, how hillariusly he did everything in this film that creates intense funny moment and a deep impact in my mind at the same time...such a talented actor Sacha Baron Cohen is!
It's fun to witness completely contrary style of storytelling that urges layered on top of each other one by one, inspite of it's hard to tell how much you supposed to accept it's story, and how much u put on, but Tutar-Borat question everyone in the society, and become illuminated about their culturally implanted sexism in Khazaksthan and America. Each part of the two Borat's films is not really a film about fun or light comedy...rather than these two films are so much serius , they portrays litteraly everything about social and cultural backdrops infront of us jzt like a well decorated mirror.
