'Sadak 2' Review: A Complete Dud With An Extremely Poor Plot

A Potpourri of Vestiges Review

By Shubhangi Jain

The much awaited movie Sadak 2 is finally out and is streaming on Disney + Hotstar. The film is a sequel to 1991 film Sadak. Directed by Mahesh Bhatt and Produced by Mukesh Bhatt the film has a runtime of 133 minutes. In the aftermath of the death of Sushant Singh Rajput the film’s trailer received a heavy criticism owing to the nepotism debate and soon it became the second most disliked video on Youtube.

While most of us in 2020 have become quite rational in our approach, Sadak 2 takes us back to the 90s, a period, which obviously remained imperfect. There was nothing frantically unique about Sanjay Dutt - Pooja Bhatt starrer, yet there was something about the blend of thick plot and execution, toplined by the exceptional Sadashiv Amrapurkar as the malicious Maharani, which made it one of the most vital movies of that period. The issue with Sadak 2 is that it is so profoundly settled in the most exceedingly awful parts of 90s filmmaking that the entirety of Dutt's throbbing power and hellfire for cowhide activity can't free it.

The film starts with the sad hero Ravi (Sanjay Dutt) who binds a rope around his neck and is conversing with his perished spouse Pooja about their looming gathering in eternity. However, the fan that he is holding tight to, comes smashing down and Ravi needs to live one more day. While tuning in to 'Hum Tere Bin Kahin Reh Nahin Paate' in his carport and arranging one more leave, his entryway jolts open and a hyper Aarya storms in requesting her three-month advance booking be respected. Along these lines, starts an excursion of arbitrary exciting bends in the road, both out and about and off it, and a screenplay that goes down different courses and in the long run hits an impasse.

Alia Bhatt, who is known for her fine exhibitions on screen, crashes and burns this time. Aside from a couple of enthusiastic scenes, this demonstration—by her own exclusive requirements—is carefully normal. Aditya Roy Kapoor doesn't have a lot of task to carry out other than conveying a pithu bag and guitar which he conveys all through the film and after a point, he shows up reserved. Aside from being Alia's sweetheart in the film the thing which will catch your eyes is that he is seen emerging from prison with his pithu bag, a guitar and his pet owl (Kumbhkaran) which will make you think for some point that whether he was returning from a prison or some pleasant excursion. While at the same time Sanjay Dutt pulls off his passionate scenes very well with those gushed bulgy eyes doing all the talking. Jisshu Sengupta as Alia's daddy is seen quite effective in his role. Then again, entertainers like Makarand Deshpande and Priyanka Bose convey some unfathomably exaggerated acting. Their acts are entertaining but now and again we wonder whether to snicker or cry in any event, during the inwardly charged scenes.

The only person who continues battling against the heavy storyline is Sanjay Dutt. Regardless of all the absurdity, he remains the sole survivor. While Dutt ends the entire racket of fake Godman by chanting 'Ram Naam Satya Hai' we too ended our hopes from the movie in a similar way. Sadly, Sadak 2 fails miserably and one can easily skip the movie without any regrets.

Rating: 2/10
