Cast: Vidyut Jammwal, Adah Sharma
Director: Deven Bhojani
Vidyut Jammwal was coming back as Commando Karanveer Singh Dogra. He had impressed with his Kalaripayattu-inspired combat skills in the original. So, it was quite natural to expect more from him.
Vidyut has great screen presence and owns the action scenes. If you thought you had seen it all when Vidyut somersaulted over a moving car, your breath will stop when he slides under one.
A ‘hawala’ racketeeer Vicky (Thakur Anoop Singh) operates from the Malaysia-Thailand border and is responsible for siphoning off corrupt Indian businessmen’s money. The Indian government, under the leadership of home minister Leela (Shefali Shah), has handpicked a team to bring the culprits back.
Commando 2 is high on patriotism, but some parts feel a little forced. Zafar, the computer hacker who has never held a gun in his life, is asked why he became a cop instead of pursuing a more profitable profession like IT. Nobody would associate the name Zafar Hussain with a patriot, he passionately says, so he became determined to prove them wrong and lay down his life for the country. When he is killed, Vidyut proclaims, “Tumne saabit kar diya.”
Meanwhile, Adah Sharma takes charge and shines in comic scenes, but the lacklustre screenplay doesn’t help much.
Esha Gupta’s antagonist’s act is pouty provocative and sexy. .At one point while playing seductive wife to a paraplegic outlaw
The screenplay about blackmoney, demonetization, and yes, desh-bhakti plugs all the holes in its script with commanding cleverness. The plot is designed as a brick-building toy that moves in a sly sexy slant and manages to stay up there.Writer Ritesh Shah and Suresh Iyercombine political savvy and pulp fiction with much gusto.
Commando 2 – Final Verdict:
Go watch it for the action, for Vidyut Jammwal, for Esha Gupta, the action and punches . Beautifully choreographed stunts featuring Jammwal will leave you impressed, at the edge of your seats
