Encounter specialist Sadhu Agashe (Nana Patekar) who is forced into semi-retirement after his various encounters and cases against him is cajoled back into joining the force in Mumbai. Enjoying the bliss of Goa with his son, he breaks out of his reverie after his son tells him that he should not be the reason of him (Sadhu) not joining the police force. He is a policeman, not a fisherman, his son tells him.


Sadhu comes back, much to the happiness of the Defence Minister (Vikram Gokhale), Chief Minister (Dilip Prabhawalkar) and former Police Commissioner (Mohan Agashe).

He is soon down to business eliminating the goons, trying to clean up the system, when the system gives him a jolt.

AB TAK CHAPPAN 2 is an 80s plot with a 90s twist with director Aejaz Gulab trying to give it a current flavor. It doesn't work.

Primiralily because the city has moved off from underworld crime and criminals. It did, however, work in 2004, in its first installment.


Which characters will turn negative is clear from the beginning, but to the film's credit, it must be said that the pawn game that is exposed in the end, is indeed an eye-opener. We are all used and abused by someone who is hungry for his own needs.

Nana Patekar is at his blistering best, even though he is shown ageing in the sequel. He is still sharp and agile, putting his younger teammates to shame.

For his fans, this is a must watch. A takeaway dialogue, delivered in a typical Nana Patekar style is: ''Jo bhi bolna hai, saamne bolo, dusre ke kaan ko commode mat bana.''

Sadhu as Police Commissioner [in a current crime scenario] perhaps would have worked. But then he would have seen through the machinations of the ''system.''

Rating 2/5
