We all know that our country is divided in two types of moviegoers, masses who prefer to watch the film in a single screen and then are are audiences who prefer to watch a movie in a multiplex.We have filmmakers like Rohit Shetty, Farah Khan, Ali Abbas Zafar and others whose target audience is the masses.
But then, we have Milap Zaveri, who in the name of massy entertaining film, gives the audience a headache. The filmmaker’s latest outing Satyameva Jayate 2 is stuck in a time when heroes used to shout at the top of their voice, would beat the bad guys, save the girls and of course there was a mother who apart from sobbing had nothing to do in the film.
Satyameva Jayate 2 is about two brothers, Satya and Jay, both played by John. Satya is the Home minister and Jay is a cop. The former wants a clean country which doesn’t have corruption. While in day Satya is the Home Minister, at night, he goes and kills corrupt people. The cop John gets the case to find this killer. What will Jay do once he comes to know that the killer is his own brother?
The basic plot-line of Satyameva Jayate 2 is interesting, but the way Zaveri has narrated it, you will surely need a pain killer to cure the headache you will get after watching this movie. The dialogues are the most pathetic element of the film. Neither they are funny nor exciting or whistle worthy.
There’s even 3rd John when the film goes into flashback, and that character will remind you of Sunny Deol from Gadar because he only shouts. But, when Deol shouted Hindustan Zindabad, we all cheered for him, here we just want the film to get over so we can go home.
Performance-wise, John Abraham is strictly average. We expected something more from him in a movie where he actually gets to play triple role. Divya Khosla Kumar needed a better comeback. It’s not that she is a bad actress. we love her cuteness in her music videos, but in SMJ 2 her character is very badly written. A talented actress like Gautami Kapoor is also wasted.
The songs in the film are damn good and the only saving grace here. Nora Fatehi’s Kusu Kusu grabs our attention the most thanks to her amazing dance moves.
On the whole, we just want to say that watch any film of John on TV or on OTT, but don’t watch Satyameva Jayate 2.
