Movie review 

The plot of GADAR 2 centers on a father and his son. Ashraf Ali (Amrish Puri), who was lambasted in Pakistan following the first half’s events, is hung at Hamid Iqbal’s urging. Seventeen years later, in 1971, Sunny Deol’s Tara Singh is living contentedly with his wife Sakeena (Ameesha Patel) and son Charanjeet Singh, also known as Jeete (Utkarsh Sharma). The Indian military is geared up for conflict with Pakistan. Gaurav Chopra’s Lieutenant Colonel Devendra Rawat urges Tara to assist a specific army unit that is stranded at the border while battling the Pakistani army. Tara battles the enemy in addition to supplying ammunition to the Indian army force.

Several Indian soldiers and truck drivers who were with Tara are taken prisoner by the Pakistani army. Tara is believed to be detained in Pakistan’s Kot Lakhpat prison but is currently missing. Both Sakeena and Jeete are devastated. The state of Jeete’s mother is too much for her. To find his father, he flees to Pakistan on a false passport. He approaches Ashraf Ali’s brother Abdul Ali (Ehsan Khan) and Gul Khan alias Gullu (Mushtaq Khan), asking for their help in breaking into Kot Lakhpat prison. Jeete poses as a cook in the home of Kurban Khan (Mushtaq Kak) as part of their scheme. Muskaan (Simratt Kaur), Kurban’s daughter, helped Jeete land the job by falling in love with him. The remaining events comprise the rest of the film .

The plot of Shaktimaan is perfect for the follow-up to a classic blockbuster like GADAR – EK PREM KATHA (2001), as it has all the elements of a mainstream entertainer. The script for Shaktimaan is passable. The tale is dotted with large-scale scenes by him. But it lacks imagination in a few instances. In several scenes, Shaktimaan’s discourse is worth applauding.

I like Anil Sharma’s directing. He performed effectively in some sequences, such as Tara asking Jeete what his final wish is, Tara glancing at the hand pump and the subsequent shot, and Jeete running into a kind woman. Additionally, the first episode is quite memorable, and Tara Singh is already a familiar face to the audience. Therefore, just seeing Tara Singh on the big screen is enough to thrill the crowd. Additionally, there is a strong undercurrent of patriotism, which will resonate greatly with the audience. In addition, the father-son relationship is evolving in several societies.

On the other hand, the movie is excessively long. Since Sunny Deol is absent from the movie for a good 30 minutes throughout this part of the first half, it could leave spectators impatient. After a point, it seemed as though the creators had run out of ideas as the second half got underway with a bang. When compared to GADAR – EK PREM KATHA, where the second half focused on Tara and his family fleeing the Pakistani government, there was a lot going on and nobody got up from their seats even for a brief while. Sadly, the sequel lacks that kind of impact.

Sunny Deol puts on a great show, speaking of which. It’s a pleasure to watch him perform with such vigor even at this young age because of his dazzling presence on television. Ameesha Patel barely appears and is useless. Utkarsh Sharma makes an effort to do his best. But there is much room for improvement in his performance. Manish Wadhwa is excessive, but it fits with his persona. Lovely Simratt Kaur. It’s all right with Ehsan Khan, Mushtaq Khan, and Mushtaq Kak. I’m alright, Gaurav Chopra. For fun, Imtehaan, Darmiyaan’s nephew, Aaditya Sharma, is present. Pakistani mausi Lubna Salim is so cute.

The superb musical score of the first part is not even near to Mithoon’s music, which falls flat. ‘Udd Jaa Kaale Kaava’, its climax version, and ‘Main Nikla Gaddi Leke’ succeed mostly because they are recreations. ‘Dil Jhoom’ and ‘Chal Tere Ishq Mein’ fall flat. Ideally, the creators should take one of these tracks down. ‘Khairiyat’ and ‘Sura Soi’ are timeless. The background music by Monty Sharma is incredibly popular.

The cinematography by Najeeb Khan is stylish. The production design by Muneesh Sappal is realistic yet engaging. One of the film’s selling points is the action starring Abbas Ali Moghul, Sham Kaushal, Tinu Verma, and Ravi Varma. Sunny Deol’s outfits by Gagan Oberoi are really cool. The rest of the characters’ costumes by Nidhi Yasha are decent. The VFX created by Pixelld Studios and Prisca is excellent in the Amrish Puri shot but subpar in the remaining sequences. The editing by Ashfaq Makrani and Sanjay Sankla falls short. The order of certain sequences seems off. Additionally, the movie should have been cut by 10 to 15 minutes.

Overall, GADAR 2 succeeds greatly because of its tremendous franchise value, ideal release window, and patriotic storyline. It will have a massive box office debut and set records in the mass market. The movie will make a ton of money because to the holidays in Week One.

Enjoy the movie
