Satya 2 quick review: Definitely not a sequel to Satya!

Our critic reports that the movie makes an impact, but fails to impress with actors who cannot support the script

We were eagerly waiting for this one, hoping that maverick director Ram Gopal Varma had regained his form at last. But, as our movie critic reports from the theatre, “Ram Gopal Varma’s Satya 2 is not a sequel to the successful and now cult underworld movie Satya. In fact, it does not even stand anywhere even close to the classic. The movie starts with RGV’s narration of what the underworld is and how its face has changed over the years. Taking you down Mumbai’s dirty, potholed roles, the lead actors have tried their best to look the part, but fail.

The only motivation to watch Satya 2 is its tight storyline, which manages to keep the audience interested. Character sketches are impactful and we’re sure that if there were better actors playing the parts, the movie would be almost at par with Satya. The movie unfolds with the lead coming to Mumbai with the sole intention of becoming the king of the city. The movie is overflowing with ear-shattering gaalis of every kind. Mix it with extremely violent scenes and you cringe in your seat.”
