Supriya Pathak, Jamnadas Majhetia, Anang Desai, Rajeev Mehta, and Kirti Kulhari will reprise their roles, while Vandana Pathak will return to her role of Jayshree, after previously being replaced by Nimisha Vakharia in the first film. Furthermore, Farah Khan,[12] Anant Vidhaat, Pratik Gandhi,[13] Paresh Ganatra, Kiku Sharda, and Flora Saini will make special appearances in the film.[14]

Critical response[edit]

Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express gave the film 1 out of 5, writing, "Why did this ultra-loud, blindingly colour-coordinated bunch who did nothing of any consequence in the first movie, bother to circle back for a sequel?"[17]

Deepa Gahlot of Rediff.com gave the film 2 out of 5, calling the production values as "shoddy" and the plot "incoherent."[7] Agnivo Niyogi of The Telegraph India criticised the screenplay and "focus on several subplots", writing, "Khichdi 2: Mission Paanthukistan struggles to create the kind of comedic moments that were the hallmark of the original TV serial."[4]

A critic from Bollywood Hungama rated the film 2.5/5 stars and wrote "Khichdi 2 suffers from a weak second half and an unimaginative script."[18]
