Movie Review: ‘Jannat 2’ (**Two Star)

‘Jannat 2’ is a movie seems to be inspired from the Nicolas Cage’s ‘Lord of War’. A typical Bollywood masala story ‘Jannat 2’ does not evoke much response among the audience.  Based on the issue of arms trafficking the movie revolves around Emraan Hashmi who is a small time gun dealer.

He takes pride in being called Sonu Dilli KKC (Kutti Kamini Cheez!) and his only objective in life is to make the life of killers easy. He had it easy unless he finds ACP Pratap (Randeep Hooda) who is passionate to fight the arm dealers operating in his area. Sonu becomes a police informer after a close encounter with the ACP.

When pushed into the inner circles of the arms trafficking Sonu is asked by the Police to uncover the real faces behind the illicit trade. While doing all this  Sonu finds Jahnvi (Esha Gupta), a doctor who works at a government hospital.  The plot then takes a turn and Sonu strikes a deal with the police which could be mutually beneficiary to both the parties.

The narrative of the movie is predictable but thanks to some good work by the director and his team the movie does not fall apart. It would have been better if  director Kunal Dehsmukh had paid greater attention to spice up the thrilling moments in the movie rather than working aimlessly on elaborating the romantic content in the script

Emraan Hashmi has successfully addressed his constituency by doing what he is expected to do. He plays the role of a brat in his own style but he does not sound like a typical Dilli da Munda. The surprise package in the movie is actor Randeep Hooda’s commendable performance. He is one actor who is growing with his every single release. He has immense potential as an actor and very few directors in Tinsel Town have realised it.

Esha Gupta has not much to do in the movie. She looks glamorous on screen and that is the end of her contribution in the movie. The music in the movie has been highly appreciated by the critics and fans but its the background score which needs a special mention.

In short  Jannat 2 is not a bad film but it is also not a movie which you cannot afford to miss. Watch it only if you do not have anything else to do.
