Rating: 1 star (out of 5)

An idealistic home minister who transforms into a murderous anti-corruption crusader and his top-gun twin, a dreaded cop tasked with catching a killer, are not the only roles John Abraham takes on Satyamev Jayate 2, The lead actor also turns into an extended flashback in the second half of the film in the guise of the siblings’ honest father, who uses a farmer’s plow as a lethal weapon to attack a moneylender and his goons. It adds three John Abraham, two too many.

But Wait, John Abraham’s Triple Dose Isn’t The Worst Thing Satyamev Jayate 2, written and directed by Milap Milan Zaveri as a follow-up to his 2018 hit, which pitted the same lead actor against Manoj Bajpayee. The writing is unbearably bad. From the acting to the sound design, everything else in this maddening jumble of the film is painful spectacle. The ear-splitting background score is intended to overwhelm everything in viewing. It succeeds. It’s all about what makes a movie so executable that it makes sooryavanshi Look like a shimmering masterpiece.

Poor cinematic quality is only one aspect of it Satyamev Jayate 2, The film also projects dangerous ideas about instant justice and patriotism. No Hindi film in living memory has misused the tricolor so brazenly Satyamev Jayate 2 does. The film invokes the national flag with the aim of justifying extra-judicial means of punishing the corrupt. In the bargain, all it does is have the fair reputation of the world’s largest democracy.

None of this, of course, is unintentional. The movie goes all out to prove that this country was a basket affair all these years and was in need of a complete overhaul for several decades, a line of thinking that troll army of a particular political colour. Emphasizing. Violent methods of arresting law breakers, Satyamev Jayate 2 The suggestions are entirely justified, because in the process of eliminating all traces of corruption, some collateral damage is inevitable.

The film shamelessly invokes Mahatma Gandhi and Bhagat Singh. One wall of a police office has pictures of the Father of the Nation, as well as portraits of Subhas Chandra Bose, Babasaheb Ambedkar and Chandrashekhar Azad. But don’t expect the author to have any serviceable political skills. Treading a fascist political line, the screenplay shatters the notion that nothing is more important than the national interest – Jana Gana Mana is more than wealth, the main male characters thunder at various points in the film.

Until this country is completely free from corruption This freedom will not celebrate freedom, say two of the three truculent characters played by John Abraham. His family name is Azad. How imaginative is this film. Whatever he wants to say, for whatever it’s worth, is hammered by the finesse of a bulldozer. So, the three righteous people who resort to non-religious means to prove their point are all ‘free’. One son’s name is Satya, the other’s Jai – hence the title of the film.

The sequel has nothing to do with the predecessor in terms of story and character. Not that taking it from where Satyamev Jayate had ended would have benefited in any way. Coming to think of it, Satyamev Jayate 2 The 2018 film could not have an expansion as then it would not have John Abraham.

more than three freedoms of azad Satyamev Jayate 2 are independent, flexing their muscles at will, cursing people, and making their way through one-sided conflicts. His opponents – doctors, industrialists, politicians, petty crooks – are sitting. They blow them away with ease. In one scene, really.

As Satyamev Jayate 2 opens, an anti-corruption bill is defeated in the assembly. The opposition voted against the proposal. Some coalition partners are dishonest. Not only this, the Home Minister’s wife (Divya Khosla Kumar) also joins the opponents. This is called democracy, that’s why my country is great, an outrageous voice rises, suggesting that it may be time to put democracy on hold and let the cautious hero take a hard ride on constitutional principles.

Home Minister Satya Balram Azad (Abraham 1) gives a fiery speech in response to the defeat on the floor of the assembly, throwing in reference to a trend that has led to a Khan and a ‘family’ of terrorists. Outside the House, he announces his resolve to take the law into his own hands and does not rest until all forms of corruption are wiped out from this land. He along with the wrongdoers punishes them. This is followed by horrific deaths.

Supercop Jai Balram Azad (Abraham 2) is deployed to nab the robber killer. Cut to a college where a girl is being bullied. It’s Independence Day. The scoundrel is intent on sacrificing his freedom. The police officer reaches on time. As the constable proceeds to crush the goons after taking off his uniform and revealing his six-pack, the national anthem starts playing. He stands in meditation. The miscreants attacked him. He doesn’t move an inch. But as the national anthem ends, the invincible lawmaker jumps back into the fray and finishes the job.

In the midst of a khadi vs khaki confrontation, Satya and Jai’s mother (Gautami Kapoor), an accident victim two decades ago, lies unconscious in a private clinic. Family friend and current Chief Minister Chandraprakash Sinha (Harsh Chhaya) stands by his brothers thick and thin.

A girl child died in front of the hospital due to the doctors being on strike. Forty students of the madrassa lose their lives after eating contaminated food and end up in a government health facility that does not have oxygen cylinders. A martyr’s daughter is ruthlessly refused by an officer when she asks for her father’s pension.

A new flyover collapsed due to being constructed of substandard material. A young woman was gang-raped by three people associated with politics. She sets herself on fire in full public view. Satya Azad is always ready to help the humble. He has a way of cornering every criminal and taking away his brand of punitive action on the spot.

It would be an understatement to describe Satyamev Jayate 2 As a big misfire. It is a constant derision of a film. The soundtrack is cheesy and ear-splitting. The dialogues are not only embarrassingly catchy, but also clearly a handiwork of third-rate rhymes. Characters don’t speak, they roar. The gems of baseless dullness abound because the characters speak lewd lines. There’s nothing to beat the one who places Father’s cap next to mother’s womb, The rhyme is terrible, the delivery is terrible.

Summarizes the film about it. Satyamev Jayate 2 Redefines the infant in a way that Bollywood filmmakers in the 1980s could not even dream of in their wildest.
