Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Gavin Site:TOI
The most enjoyable aspect about Pitch Perfect 2 is the singing. The vocals are polished, joyful and the interplay between the trained voices is seamless, forming a delightful musical tapestry. This more than makes up for some of the negatives, such as the uneven script and the sometimes jerky transitions between set pieces. But then again, if you watch this film, you’re not going to do so for scintillating dialogues. By and large, PP2 is a fun film with its best moments being of the musical variety.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Rohini Nair Site:Deccanchronicle
There are several awkward jokes and sequences (especially those featuring Fat Amy, and Beca’s somewhat crush on DSM’s frontwoman, Kommissar), pat sub-plots (Fat Amy’s romance with another character, Bumper, played by Adam DeVine; Emily’s flirtation with a member of Barden’s all-male a capella group, The Treblemakers; and Beca’s attempts to find her own sound as a music producer) and some really good a capella music. Pitch Perfect 2 has already gone on to become the highest grossing musical comedy in the US, beating School of Rock — and while the film is absolutely no match for Jack Black’s razor sharp comedy skills, it does score high in the music department. The Bella’s a capella mash-up of Run The World (Girls) would do Beyonce proud, while Das Sound Machine’s renditions are awesome. There’s even a small appearance by Penn Masala, the only Hindi a capella group. Guest appearances by music stars like Snoop Dogg and Reggie Watts are a huge, enjoyable bonus.All in all, Pitch Perfect 2 may go off key on the comedy, but on the a capella, it hits all the right notes.
