Satya 2

‘Satya 2’ is a Hindi movie based on the underworld. The movie was released on 8th November. Ram Gopal Varma has directed the film. The lead casts of the movie are Puneet Singh Ratn, Anaika Soti and Aradhna Gupta. 

Before the release of movie, Ram Gopal had said about the story of the movie, “All this was in the early eighties and we are now in 2013 and since there is almost no underworld now, it is clear that there's a vacuum and whenever there's a vacuum in any lucrative business there will always be an entrepreneur to step in. If ‘Satya’ was a story of a man who came in 1998 and shaped the then existing underworld, ‘Satya 2’ is about another man who comes in 2013 to reinvent the underworld. To that extent I would say this is a futuristic film not in terms of science fiction but in terms of that there's no precedent for the protagonist of ‘Satya 2’. He starts a new underworld company based on his study of the mistakes of all the earlier dons and also on the ways he develops to deal with the modern day policing methods.”

That means ‘Satya 2’ is a sequel of ‘Satya’.

But there was no need of a sequel. ‘Satya’ was a complete package in itself and Ram Gopal of course headed for a disaster with the sequel. The movie looks like a novice work. Skewed camera angles, loud noise, facile screenplay and inept acting leave you shell shocked.

Also, the film lacks characters whom audience love and sympathize with, despite them being baddies. There is no ‘Kallu Mama’ or ‘Bhiku Mhatre’ to infuse some light moments in the otherwise dull and boring film.

The male lead, Puneet Singh who is again called Satya comes to Mumbai from some village to create a history in underworld. All the antagonists shown in the prequel have been exterminated and ironically they do not have anybody from their gang to come forward. As if the battlefield was all open for Satya with no opponents. The film lacks backbone. Too fake to be true.

While Satya is all busy to create his empire with numerous blood sheds, he still finds time to lure his lady and later marry her. Too bizarre!

The movie hardly bears any resemblance to its prequel. ‘Satya 2’ can be given a miss.
