Immediate reaction when the end credits roll

Sadak 2 – this garbage of the year serves as a nightmare for everyone. First the audience and then the makers (when they see/read/hear the reaction) and then for all.

She trusts her father – played by Jisshu Sengupta and is in love with Vishal (Aditya Roy Kapur) a singer cum online troller or vice versa… whatever. Then whatever happens and the movie goes wherever.

Sadak 2 movie review

What a horrific, nightmarish, disgusting, insulting return of the once prolific Mahesh Bhatt as a director after 20 years. 20 saal baad. Worst then those ghosts coming out from the grave in those b – c grade horror movies. Shocking and so bad that it turns hilarious. Pathetic piece of filmmaking.

The writers Pushpdeep Bhardaj, Mahesh Bhatt and Suhrita Sengupta begin decently but after a while it seems the writers have decided to ‘smoke’ and go for random twists and turns resulting in an unbearable hara kiri.

Nothing worth it. No originality, just a cobbled-together script. This should have been a big red flagged right at the beginning but…

Making caricatures out of villainous characters and making refined actors like Makarand Deshpande act as weird jokers making them ashamed of themselves for unknowingly falling into this prey.

This make hay sequel while the corporate money bag shines is an insult to the filmmaking mankind.

Alia Bhatt is flat. Priyanka Bose is over the top. Aditya Roy Kapur is a big bore.

So, anything good in Sadak 2

Sanjay Dutt with his big eyes and heart fights this already lost battle. Jishu Sengupta impresses.

Music

Jeet Gannguli, Ankit Tiwari, Samidh Mukherjee, Urvi and Suniljeet are no match to the class of Nadeem-Shravan in the original 1991 Sadak. They can try in their forthcoming Janams. My best wishes.

Final words

The worst sequel in Bollywood. A lesson on how to make an award-winning inept movie. A horror, an insult, a shocking generic time-waster powered by a weird, caricaturist, cynical combination of characters, laughable twists and maudlin sentiments. Sadak 2 got a digital release and luckily this dead-on arrival cinema has got a funeral. Imagined if this disgusting thrash was unleashed on a big screen then God would have saved the theatres from the wrath of the audience and the movie would be finding it extremely difficult for a piece of land for its own burial. Still going with half a star (only for our dear Sanjay Dutt).
