Story:

Satyameva Jayate 2, starring John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar, is finally here, and we can all agree that the second instalment of this action franchise doesn’t match up to its reputation.

The film, directed by Milap Milan Zaveri, introduces us to Satya, India’s honourable Home Minister. We finally see a furious John Abraham who is disillusioned and embarrassed by his colleagues while the HM battles for the corruption law in Vidhan Sabha, and believe us when we say, John Abraham has skillfully maintained his angry face throughout the entire film. Well, that’s not all; just 5-minutes into the movie, we get to see John’s epic monologue, the first of many (a lot of them), which will only add to the laughs for all those who see it.

Technical Departments:

It’s deafeningly loud, and the dialogues are written in such a ridiculously poetic style that Gunda’s lines seem so weird. The emotions and screenplay are so melodramatic that you’ll be forced to laugh your guts out or risk questioning the morality of your life choices; religious cliches are amplified to the hilt in a feeble attempt to please everyone; and nationalism is played to such hyper effect that you’d happily exit the theatre and rush to hoist the next flag if the reality of the times we’re living in were not so disturbing, where people’s identities are being questioned.

However, some of the action scenes work, and Director Milap Zaveri deserves credit for weaving in recent tumultuous events that shook the country. The surprise twist at the interval is also unexpected.

Performances:

John Abraham plays three characters in Satyameva Jayate 2, and it takes a lot of effort to distinguish between them, but the actor succeeds admirably. Despite the fact that the entire film revolves around Jay and Satya, John’s portrayal of Azad is the one that sticks with me the most. He is determined and stern yet a people’s person as Azad, an earnest politician as Satya, and a fun-loving cop as Jay. Throughout the film, it’s easy to forget that all three roles are played by the same man.

Divya Khosla Kumar, on the other hand, returns to the camera after a long absence, and we wish she hadn’t.

Verdict:

Satyameva Jayate 2 gives Bollywood haters more fuel to criticise Hindi cinema’s most conventional and local style to filmmaking. To make matters worse, Divya Khosla Kumar’s performance is so terrible that you have to question if she spoke her lines on a timer.
