When Vidyut Jammwal's Commando came out it garnered positive word of mouth. Who knew the action movie will spawn a sequel. But Commando 2 has dropped in with Vidyut reprising his role from the first. Joining him are Adah Sharma, Freddy Daruwala, Esha Gupta, Shefali Shah amongst others. The action packed film has been directed by Deven Bhojani. I am watching the movie right now, and the first half just got over. Here is how the movie has fared so far...
When a film begins with a five-minute action sequence, you know what to expect in the hours to follow. But if it's Vidyut Jammwal delivering the kicks, you hardly have a reason to complain. The film's first half lives up to the promise of being an action-fest. Complete with bone-crunching punches, flying fists and aerial acrobatics, Commando 2 has, so far, managed to engage. Also, there's a lot of gun-slinging this time around.
However, while the first film, Commando, was all about a lone ranger, Commando 2 focusses on the larger picture. Vidyut Jammwal, as the invincible Commando, is now a part of the special cell. His new role requires him to assist in the PMO's mission of bringing back the black money that has been siphoned offshore. The film's villain is a kingpin who controls all the black money in India, or is he? The plot throws a surprise right when the lights come back on, signalling intermission.
While the film features both Adah Sharma and Esha Gupta, the plot has thankfully not allowed them to romance and break into a song-and-dance routine just yet. But that's not to say there is no threat of that happening. Now to see what the film's second half has to offer. More action definitely seems to be on the menu.
