Rohan (Tiger Shroff), boy from the infra dig Pishorilal Chamandas College aspires to be in the elitist St Theresa College because his childhood sweetheart Mridula (Tara Sutaria) has moved on to a more posh school. As things turn out, he does manage to set foot in the elite campus, only to realise that he doesn’t belong in the rarefied world of the snooty Richie Richs. During this brief interlude, he meets Manav (Aditya Seal), the official Theresa star and his spoilt sister Shreya (Ananya Panday) and quickly enough the battlelines are clearly drawn.
What follows thereafter is predictable stuff about poor kids versus rich kids and so on, minus the sparkling humour and cinematic genius that marked Mansoor Khan’s film of 1992, one of the rare youth films that had sports–a cycling race–at the heart of it all. SOTY 2, meanwhile has a bunch of sports activities with a kabaddi match as the ultimate deciding factor for the candidate who finally clinches the title of Student of the Year and takes home the trophy!
