Director: Mahesh Bhatt
Sanjay Dutt is in on it, and maybe he’s the one one. As Sadak 2 meanders between pretend babas and grasping households, because it slaps on the melodrama and the remainder of the solid goes by way of the paces, Sanjay Dutt actually will get into the spirit of issues. His Ravi is grizzled and reveals his intestine, however that doesn’t cease him from going head-to-head with the primary baddie he sees. Don’t miss the smile on his face and the tune on his lips as he goes at it. He brings the one moments of pleasure on this uniformly dreary outing.

The difficulty with Sadak 2 is that it’s so deeply entrenched within the worst features of 90s filmmaking that every one of Dutt’s aching depth and hell-for-leather motion can not free it. It’s a far cry from the excellent cinema Mahesh Bhatt served us again within the day – I converse of Naam and Zakhm, Arth and Daddy. Sadak 2 regurgitates essentially the most cliched, exaggerated pulp that Bollywood spewed out within the decade, and within the one previous it.
The themes of loss of life, suicide and psychological sickness are all pervasive within the movie and are dealt with with all of the finesse of a bull in a china store. Aching for his misplaced love, Sanjay’s Ravi always talks of a ‘reunion up within the heavens’ and sometimes tries to behave on it. The one time his buddy manages to tug him to the hospital, the physician asks him what he would do if his home was on fireplace. His reply includes a can of petrol. Alia Bhatt’s Aarya, who’s making an attempt to unmask a ‘dhongi baba’ named Gyaan Prakash (Makrand Deshpande), is shortly labelled loopy and despatched to the identical doc. There may be even a point out of her being threatened with electrical shock remedy!
Sadak 2 evaluate: Regardless of Sanjay Dutt’s display presence, the movie fails to carry you.
Written by Mahesh Bhatt and Suhrita Sengupta, the movie appears dated from the phrase go. Makrand Deshpande’s cut-out hulks over a non secular ceremony that’s straight out of a Dan Brown e-book. That is maybe the one time we actually see something remotely related to faith or religion. Alia spray-paints the phrase ‘revenge’ on the cut-out earlier than setting it afire. Amid this non-public Dussehra, she is chased round by the baba’s minions and results in the mentioned hospital.
An heiress, Alia goes on the run from the pretend baba – an ungainly phrase, doesn’t assist what number of occasions the movie says it — who has obtained his hooks into her household too – father Yogesh (Jisshu Sengupta) and step mommy Nandini (Priyanka Bose). She hires Ravi, who’s pining for his misplaced love (Pooja Bhatt, seen solely in portraits), to drive her to Kailash to fulfil a promise she made to her useless mom. Coming alongside for the trip is her boyfriend (Aditya Roy Kapur). What follows are extra twists than you’d see even in an Abbas-Mustan movie, and every is extra hilarious than the final one, lastly main us to probably the most cringe-inducing climaxes of any movie this 12 months.
Many veterans put in an look too – there may be Gulshan Grover as Dilip Hathkata and Mohan Joshi as a corrupt police officer Rajesh. Weighed down by the ponderous story and sluggish tempo, none of them add a lot to Sadak 2. Even the naturally gifted Alia Bhatt fails to rise above the expository dialogues and the leaden narrative.
Montages from the unique Sadak, interspersed by way of this iteration, by no means allow us to neglect how half baked this product is. After which there are the self-referential nods – Makrand’s baba seems in drag, as a nod to Sadashiv Amrapurkar’s iconic Maharani from the primary movie, maybe. It comes throughout as an inexpensive knock-off, rather a lot like this movie.
