Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Movie Review: Sacha Baron Cohen Is Back And Is As Cheeky As Before

To go back to the earlier film in the Borat series-Yaadon Ki Borat, we may call it-in 2006, actor-performer-comedian Sacha Baron Cohen had first played the  Kazakh journalist who travels through the American heartland to try and understand how the American Dream works. It was a sassy audacious attempt at juicing America’s sexism and racism for all it was worth in mirth.

The second part of the  Borat series, like Mirzapur 2 is more of the same. More of Cohen’s hilarious Kazakh accent (I’ve never met a Kazakh, so I wouldn’t know if  Cohen is doing a  Peter Sellers or a  Meryl Streep), more of his Crocodile Dundee antics, and more crudity, a lot more. Some of it has to do with the female private party and it is not funny to anyone who has any sense of decency.

What was  Sacha Baron  Cohen thinking? Borat 2 is a father-daughter story and the vaginal jokes have a deliberately incestuous feel to them. I wonder why such witless adult humour was allowed. It ruins the film’s otherwise-amusing attempts to take spiky jibes at the Trump administration particularly his Vice President Mike Pence to whom  Sacha’s Baron wants to  ‘gift’  his 15-year old daughter.

How much more politically incorrect can it get?  A   lot more, trust me on that!   The actual humour of Borat 2 comes from the same source as the first film. Sacha Cohen in character as  Borat places hidden cameras to record the reaction of god-fearing well-meaning Americans to Borat’s cultural dubiety. So we get decent  Americans being assailed by  Borat’s indecent queries. Now,  this is funny! 

In one sequence Borat takes his daughter to get a plastic babydoll removed from her belly which she swallowed with cake. A pastor at the abortion clinic is on to another trip altogether when  Borat tells him he wants to remove “baby that I  pooot in my zaughter’s biely” (excuse my  Kazakh accent).  Later at a fund-raising seminar, the daughter freaks out the old American wholesome ladies by talking about the various uses of the female private part. Not all reproductive.

The reactions of the women are priceless as they do not know they are being filmed, and that the  15-year  of  Kazakh girl championing vaginal liberty is an actress. Sacha Baron Cohen feels Maria Bakalova who plays his daughter deserves, an  Oscar.  Don’t mind him. We all know he’s prone to humongous excesses.

Directed by  Jason Woliner Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Gets 2 stars.
