STORY: Following the death of Shakuntala Desai's mother under mysterious circumstances, the Desai Group of Industries scion Aarya (Alia Bhatt) promises to retaliate and bring the perpetrators to justice. Also, in honor of her mother's last wish, Aarya embarks on a journey to Kailash and the story of 'Sadak 2' emerges.
REVIEW: His whole family - including mother Nandini Maa (Priyanka Bose) and father Yogesh (Jisshu Sengupta) - are under Dhongi Sadhu 'Gyaan Prakash (Makarand Deshpande) but Aarya, all 20, knows better. Convinced that his beloved mother had died as a result of an extensive program by Gyaan Prakash and that Nandini's 'disease', Aarya launched an online campaign called 'India Fights Fake Gurus'. His motive was to expose the truth behind these so-called messengers of God and to fabricate lies about them. While on the campaign, Aarya falls in love with a former troll - a very handsome artist with her own problems, Vishal (Aditya Roy Kapur). Together, they embarked on a journey to complete Aarya’s maa-ka-aakhri-sapna to visit Kailash on his 21st birthday.
However, there is a small barrier - booking agent / co-owner of Pooja Travels and Tours (guaranteeing safety and security 24 * 7) is now dead and her husband taxi driver Ravi (Sanjay Dutt) has the only purpose of life to be reunited with her in heaven. After much disappointment and supplication, the heartbroken cabbie says yes. Soon after, they find solace in each other and bloom a different friendship that overcomes both of them - Aarya finds strength and hope in a lonely person and Ravi seeks a new purpose in life through this little girl driven to achieve what she is determined to do.
Back in the 90s, when ‘Sadak’, who played the role of Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt, hit theaters, there was such outrage among the audience; for two reasons: amazing love ballads and its engaging framework. For the next 20 years, Mahesh Bhatt compiled a document to get that story back on the road again.
'Sadak 2' begins in a whisper, almost a state of dependence, when the hopeless actor Ravi ties a rope around his neck and talks to his late wife Pooja about their future reunion in the afterlife. But the fan hanging on to him will fall to the ground, and Ravi has to live another day. While listening to ‘Hum Tere Bin Kahin Reh Nahin Paate’ (such a wish, wow!) In his garage and planning another exit, the doors of his doors open and the powerful storms of Aarya demanding his booking three months ahead of time to be honored. So, it begins the journey of a random turn, on and off the road, and a screen game that travels in different directions and finally strikes a chord.
We don't know where to start: conversations are scheduled for dates and more. For decades we have heard anyone in the movies 'Jo garjte hai woh baraste nahi' or 'Aadmi karz lauta sakta hain, ehsaan nahin'. No matter what the concept, fellow writers Pushpdeep Bhardwaj, Mahesh Bhatt and Suhrita Sengupta could have done much better with better writing. It is now shifted to a more structured look and feel of the movie as a whole: gundas wear glittering and eye-catching costumes, large wigs and make scenes with camera knives embroidered with caricaturish action sequences. Sandeep Chowta's background rating deserves special mention here and not for the right reasons - it's annoying melodramatic and borderline.
Alia Bhatt, known for her good play on screen, falls to the ground at this one moment. With the exception of a few emotional scenes, this action - by his high standards - is a moderate measure. Aditya Roy Kapur doesn't have much of a role to play other than appearing to smoke and after a point, he seems to be far behind until he takes the back seat. Sanjay Dutt articulates his emotional scenes with sharp eyes that make all the talking. Even in these years, you are sure to be able to bring the sequence of action - lowering the baddies one by one. With a small role, Jisshu Sengupta as Alia’s father is influential and is the absolute owner of the few frames he has in this action game. On the other hand, veteran actors such as Makarand Deshpande and Priyanka Bose brought unbelievably extravagant imitations. Their pseudo-holy / satanic act is very funny and explicit, sometimes we wonder if we can laugh or cry even if there are emotional scenes.
Instead it is disappointing to see Mahesh Bhatt's filmmaker make a comeback as a director with 'Sadak 2'. No offense ...
In short, 'Sadak 2', for everyone involved in the project, was supposed to be a 'freeway'. And for those who plan to watch this for emotional reasons, be warned in advance: This Sadak is going nowhere; Turn back. UJai Guru ji!
