Movie Review: Satya 2 (2013)

Box Office: TBA

‘Satya 2′ is about a man who comes in 2013 to reinvent the underworld. Armed with the knowledge which he has acquired through research and study of mistakes made by all previous underworld dons, he starts a new underworld company which operates just like any corporate organization. He also develops ways to deal with the modern day policing methods. So ‘Satya 2′ is about a man whose thinking starts where earlier dons’ thinking ended.

‘Satya 2’ (unlinked sequel), thrives on randomness and implausible ideas. This don is unconvincing, seeking no wrath or sympathy of the viewers. The supporting cast is too weak, and the unforgettable bhaichara, the potbellied Kallu maamas and boisterous Bhikus (of Satya fame) are sorely missed. RGV relies on his trademark camera angles, close-ups and deafening ‘Satya’ chants (background score) to heighten drama, but guns down the plot at the onset. Even a good hangover of the remarkable prequel might have salvaged this one.
