Most sequels fail to live upto the expectation - Pink Panther 2 is no exception. The script is not half as good as the original Steve Martin Pink Panther. The situational comedy is almost non existing. Steve Martin gave a nice performance but without a helpful script could not deliver much.If you have not seen the original Steve Martin Pink Panther, please go and see it after watching this movie to know what I mean. The only silverlining is Aishwarya not playing an unimportant and cliche Indian/Asian role as occassional Indian actors are shown in most Hollywood movies. Maybe Hollywood production houses are becoming more global in their outlook. Or maybe Indian actors are coming out of age. If Mrs Rai Bachchan through her role in Pink Panther can help Indian actors get prominent roles in Hollywwod productions, it will be her only other noteworthy contriution to Indian cinema -the first being Raincoat.
