Aksar 2 is an Inefficient Thriller
Aksar (often) not all thrillers are interesting.
They are all about guessing the end. If clueless about the same, more than half of a thriller’s job to be interesting is done.
Predictability spoils most of the good ones. But with Aksar 2, the film had potential. And it’s just not predictability, it’s the effort of trying to be a thriller in the first place that spoils the film.

Read Detail Review
Writer-Director Ananth Narayan Mahadevan managed to activate our senses towards the film for the first half but nothing stays out thereafter.
The sole reason is the script and lack of shock value.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
It’s one thing to make a film out and out engaging and provide a dead climax. That’s lack of shock value, but with Aksar 2, not only that, an engaging script was missing too.
In fact, after a while there was no script, the film started creating suspicion and twists with almost everybody casted in the film. Most of the twists were either predictable, lame or badly executed.
Few those wee interesting got diluted in the flood of uneventful script.
The director did try to maneuver the film with some catchy plot, but it’s this try that seems so forcible, even a simple predictable scene is made to look some thrill is revealed.
Amidst all this, even the songs and aesthetically shot love scenes look weird.
Lillete Dubey as Madame Khambatta is the best actor in the film. Badly done make over as an old lay, but the actress pulled our attention away from that with her act.
Zareen Khan as Sheena has a cute screen presence but decent acting skills, that’s not a secret. Gautam Rode tried to be convincing in his role. Both the actors did try to be good with expressions but couldn’t pull it off well.
Abhinav Shukla was busy copying John Abraham we think. Mohit Madaan as Bachchan Singh was average. So was S. Sreesanth.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
‘Aaj Zid’ will be on your mind post the film. Songs weren’t needed but they didn’t bother much. Background score was repetitive and okayish.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
You won’t regret if you give this movie a skip. A good watch on TV at home.
