Ab Tak Chhappan 2 Review: An Avoidable Encounter

Ab-Tak-Chhappan-2Nana Patekar is back as trigger-happy encounter specialist Sadhu Agashe. Coaxed out of retirement from his safe and sleepy village life, Sadhu answers the call of duty to return to the frontlines and rid Mumbai of vicious criminals.

Sadhu leads a team of select cops including the resentful and slighted Suryakant Thorat (Ashutosh Rana). They must follow the instructions of home minister Jagirdar (Vikram Gokhale), the anti-thesis to the Gandhian chief minister Annaji (Dilip Prabhavalkar).

Sadhu reactivates his old informers and begins the systematic process of cleansing the city of its malaise. But director Aejaz Gulab does not build on the idea of a super-cop encounter specialist and his body count that lead to the first 56 hits. An over-written script with more talking and than intrigue and action is central to the dullness of this sequel with even the lead actor, Patekar, appearing disinterested.

Gul Panag is cast as a crime reporter whose main purpose seems to be to expound the prowess of Sadhu and his ilk. Raj Zutshi plays an over-the-top champagne sipping bad buy relegated to a wheelchair in some foreign locale. His modus operandi is confounding in an otherwise the by-the-book story that touches on all the expected plot points.

Poor production values and ridiculous camera angles further rob Ab Tak Chhappan 2 of any individuality, making you wonder why they bothered with this sequel.
