Kashyap’s film is not an easy watch. Nevertheless, his exploration into the mind of a killer, who, by his own admission, kills for no reason other than the fact that he wants to, is deeply fascinating. I’m going with three out of five. It’s consistently engaging, but doesn’t get under your skin like some of Kashyap’s other films, particularly Black Friday,Gangs of Wasseypur, and the criminally overlooked Ugly.

On the whole, Raman Raghav 2.0 is too grim, dark, violent and depressing to entertain. It will appeal to a very thin section of the audience but will face rejection otherwise.

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Saibal Chaterjee Site:NDTV
The film zeroes in on a psychopath's chilling battle of wits, and nerves, with a sleep-deprived, drug-dependent cop in the seedy back alleys of present-day Mumbai. The exercise yields a gripping, visceral genre film that intermittently strays into fuzziness only to lift itself up forcefully enough not to lose momentum. The stylized thriller makes the most of its eight-chapter structure as it hurtles episodically through the nihilism and all-encompassing darkness of Mumbai's criminal underbelly. Extending Kashyap's continuing probe into the horrors of dehumanisation, Raman Raghav 2.0 dives deeper into the cesspit than any of the director's earlier films - to deliver a dystopian study that is at once fascinating and nauseating.

There is one big surprise in Raman Raghav 2.0, it is Vicky Kaushal's star-making performance, a far turn from his heartbreaking innocent Deepak character in last year's Masaan.As cocaine takes total control of Raghav, the cop starts to break apart. His misogynist acts again makes Raman Raghav 2.0 a difficult film to really admire.Kaushal displays a lot of brave acting, including a terrific confrontation scene with his father (Vipin Sharma in a brief appearance). There is real good cinema in that scene towards the end of the film, and also a reminder that Kashyap has a lot of talent. He just needs to stop making films that are very similar.

Vicky Kaushal is good but suffers from a poorly sketched character. The biggest problem with Raman Raghav 2.0 is that it glorifies the gore. The climax monologue will run your patience thin. Can you buy the logic that killing for insanity is better than killing in the name of religion? It is crude, callous but in trying to whip up suspense, it loses sight of vulnerability.

The film is based on the story of the notorious Raman Raghav who infested the streets of Bombay (now Mumbai) in the mid-to-late 1960s.the problem with this film, which doesn’t give its characters enough nuance to go on with. We submit to the unwatchable or to immense depravity in the hope that we will learn something about ourselves as a race.As Raghavan, Kaushal gets a little more.There are some mesmeric bits in here, which belong to Siddiqui. But those are not enough. Without those crucial elements, the film is rendered atmospheric yet hollow, and we are turned into cringing voyeurs, into reluctant participants, without redemption.

Amruta Subhash is fantastic.We know that Kashyap likes the women in his films badass and thus ultracool, but Sobhita Dhulipala (who plays the girl who Raqhav picks up from a bar) seemed to be stuck in one expression of indifference throughout, making one wonder if she was still figuring out what she’s supposed to do in the whole scheme of things. Also, at two and half hours and with no respite from the relentless gloom, it is a tad too long.It is dark, very dark and deprived of even a shred of dignity. It makes you feel nauseated at the shocking spread of depravity served to you. But then again, it is unique storytelling. Go for it, if you have the suitable palate.

RAMAN RAGHAV 2.0 is nothing to boast about, it is the film's background music (Ram Sampath), that, more than makes up for the film's music. The film's background music acts as a catalyst between the film's script and the characters. The film's cinematography (Jay Oza) is spot on and apt. Here, a special mention goes to the usage of guerrilla filmmaking techniques, which helps the film look more realistic. The film's editing (Aarti Bajaj) is loose and scenes drag endlessly. To be more specific, had the film been trimmed by almost 15-20 minutes or so, it would have been a different story altogether. On the whole, though RAMAN RAGHAV 2.0 promises to be an edgy thriller, the film fails to deliver. It is only Nawazuddin's brilliant performance that helps you sit through this 140 mins long film

It’s hard to imagine what Raman Raghav 2.0 could have been had it been made by a different director. It’s a film that utterly suits the style of Anurag Kashyap; yet he fails to create a captivating experience. This ends up making Nawazuddin Siddiqui the saving grace in the end, and he handles this responsibility like a boss. Raman Raghav 2.0 is to be watched if you wish to dive into the convoluted mind of a serial killer. If you’re not interested in that, you can give this one a miss. It’s a 2.5-star film in my opinion, but the excellent performance from Nawazuddin Siddiqui forces me to turn the rating into 3/5 stars.

The story moves at a steady pace through chapters, but loses steam slightly after the interval. There are a couple of murders which really didn’t need to be part of the story. We were quite familiar with Ramanna’s depravity from the scene where he murders his sister and her husband and young son. Or, the one where he spends the day in a filthy drain, breathing through a hose, to escape the police. At times it can feel as if you are being bludgeoned. But Kashyap’s thriller will keep you glued to your seat in spite of an expected end. Both Kaushal and Dhulipala come up with brilliant performances, but it is truly Siddiqui who steals the show.

Settling into a more cost-effective setting in contemporary Mumbai, the current film has plenty of edge and grit, but lacks the spirit of spoof that makes high levels of violence palatable. Apart from the director's cult following abroad, it seems most suited to the tastes of Indian viewers. In fact, all the women characters (two swinging singles and two maids, to be precise) are despised and mistreated, and not just because the muscle-bound cop has to use Viagra to meet their demands. Variety and depth of character are badly lacking on the female front, weakening the whole film

“Psycho Raman” often entertains most with its most lurid formal, musical and narrative gambits, from the electrifying, strobe-tastic assault of the film’s nightclub-set opening sequence to the cranked-up rat-in-a-trap terror of its finale, which closes with ample (if not exactly upbeat) potential for a 3.0 sequel. Domestic commercial returns for this unabashedly sensation-seeking outing may well be healthy enough to give that possibility a blood-spattered green light, though one hopes Kashyap — whose limber, enthusiastic work here jolts more than it actively surprises — has his eye on fresh genre terrain to exploit.

  1. रमन राघव 2.0 (A) :
    कालिख़ से भी काली, कश्यप की दुनिया! [4/5]

    अपनी नई फिल्म ‘रमन राघव 2.0’ को अनुराग उनकी सबसे ख़तरनाक लव-स्टोरी का दर्जा देते हैं. अनुराग कश्यप और लव-स्टोरी?? इसका सटीक जवाब तो आपको फिल्म के आख़िरी पलों में ही मिलता है, पर अच्छी बात ये है कि ‘बॉम्बे वेलवेट’ की नाकामयाबी ने उन्हें वापस उनके अपने जाने-पहचाने दायरे में ला खड़ा किया है. हालांकि भारतीय सिनेमा में ये दायरा भी उन्हीं की बदौलत इस मुकाम तक पहुंचा है. यहाँ उनका कोई दूसरा सानी नहीं. इस बार भी उनसे कहीं कोई चूक नहीं होती. ‘रमन राघव 2.0’ अब तक की उनकी सबसे ‘डार्क’ फिल्म बिना किसी झिझक कही जा सकती है. रक्त का रस और गाढ़ा हो चला है. खौफ़ का चेहरा पल-पल मुखौटे बदल रहा है. अँधेरे का साम्राज्य और गहराने लगा है.

    अनुराग शुरुआत में ही साफ़ कर देते हैं, फिल्म 60 के दशक में रूह कंपा देने वाले सनकी सीरियल किलर रमन राघव की कहानी बिलकुल नहीं है. हाँ, कहानी पर उस पुराने रमन राघव की परछाईं हमेशा ज़रूर मंडराती रहती है पर 2015 के आस-पास के कथाकाल में अब रमन और राघव दो अलग किरदारों में बंट जाते हैं. पिछले ढाई साल में 9 क़त्ल हुए हैं. रमन्ना [नवाज़ुद्दीन सिद्दीकी] ने खुद को पुलिस के सामने पेश कर इकबालिया बयान में जुर्म कबूल भी कर लिया है, पर उसकी ऊटपटांग बातों और हद औसत हुलिये पर ना तो एसीपी राघवन [विक्की कौशल] को यकीन है ना ही दूसरे पुलिसवालों को. हालाँकि दर्शक के तौर पर आपके मन में रमन्ना को लेकर कोई संदेह नहीं रहता. असली रमन राघव वायरलेस पर भगवान से सीधे-सीधे बात करने का दम भरता था. अपना रमन्ना खुद को भगवान का ‘सीसीटीवी कैमरा’ मानता है और दोनों हाथों से हवाई दूरबीन बनाकर अपने शिकार को अपनी लोमड़ी वाली कंचई आँखों से देखता रहता है. मारना उसके लिए ‘खाना खाने और हगने’ जैसा ही है. रोजमर्रा का काम.

    राघवन एक अलग तरह का जानवर है. बहुत कुछ हमारी ही तरह. पुरुष अहंवाद में लिपटाया, नारी-विरोधी और नशे में सर तक डूबा हुआ. सड़ रही लाशों के बीच क्राइम-सीन पर भी नाक में पाउडर उड़ेलता, बिस्तर पर ‘कंडोम’ न पहनने वाला आम मर्द, जिसे नशे के चलते अपने ढीली पड़ती मर्दानगी के ऊपर किये गए ठहाके अन्दर तक भेद जाते हैं. राघवन सोता नहीं. कभी नहीं. राघवन को तलाश है रमन की और मज़े की बात है कि रमन को भी राघवन उतना ही चाहिए, जितना सिगरेट के लिए माचिस. पकड़म-पकड़ाई के इस खेल में अँधेरा जब छंटता है तो उजाला नहीं होता, बल्कि अन्दर से एक और अँधेरा आपको निगलने के लिये बढ़ लेता है. पहले वाले से कहीं ज्यादा काला, घुप्प और डरावना.

    मुंबई की झुग्गी-झोपड़ियों के बीच अनुराग एक ऐसी दुनिया खोज लेते हैं, जो आपका देखा-सुना-जाना तो लगता है पर एक अनजाने रहस्य की तरह आपके सामने परत-दर-परत खुलता भी रहता है. विचलित कर देने वाली हत्याओं के वक़्त, अनुराग डर, खौफ़ और सनक का एक ऐसा मिला-जुला माहौल बनाते हैं कि आप उसमें अन्दर धंसते चले जाते हैं. कैमरा इस बार खून में नहा जाता हो, ऐसा शायद ही कभी होता है (मैं शिकायत कत्तई नहीं कर रहा) पर जिस तसल्ली से अनुराग पहले रमन्ना के हाव-भाव पर नज़रें गड़ाये रहते हैं और बाद में उन खौफज़दा चेहरों पर, आप सहम कर अपनी सीटों में दुबक जाते हैं या फिर आँखें फेर लेते हैं. फिल्म में औरतों के किरदार से आप कमोबेश नाखुश ही लौटते हैं. डरी-सहमी, घुटने टेक देने वाली अपने ही भाई से यौन-पीड़ित बहन हो या तीन-तीन गर्भपातों से गुजर चुकी गर्लफ्रेंड, यहाँ आपको कुछ बहुत मज़बूत नहीं दिखने वाला.

    अभिनय में जूनून देखना हो तो ‘रमन राघव 2.0’ में सिद्दीकी को देखिये. हालाँकि उनमें ‘बदलापुर’ के ‘लायिक’ की झलक देखने को ज़रूर मिलती है, पर इस बार उनका पागलपन सारी हदें पार कर देता है. हैरत में डालते हैं आपको ‘मसान’ के विक्की कौशल. अपनी तीसरी ही फिल्म में उन्हें इस तरह का जटिल किरदार इतनी बखूबी निभाते देखना हैरतंगेज़ अनुभव है. अमृता सुभाष जबरदस्त हैं. अपने एक अदद सीन में ही वो आपको अन्दर तक झकझोर जाती हैं.

    अंत में, ‘रमन राघव 2.0’ सिर्फ एक आम क्राइम थ्रिलर नहीं है. फिल्म उन अनुराग कश्यप की वापसी दर्ज कराती है जिन्हें लीक पर चलना आता ही नहीं. हिंदी सिनेमा के सदियों पुराने घेरे तोड़ने में जो बहुत उतावले भी दिखते हैं और कभी-कभी बहुत बनावटी भी, पर हैं दो-टूक. सनकी रमन्ना कहता है ना, “मैं आड़ में नहीं मारता. वर्दी की, धर्म की, इंसानियत की खाल के पीछे छुपकर नहीं मारता.” ठीक वैसे ही. [4/5]

    1. Gaurav Rai seriously 4 stars. Thts why u r nt an official reviewer for any site.
      You definately need exposure Man. Go and watch David lynch/noe Gaspar/Tarkovsky's movies. Watch them several times, understand their artistic commentry, surreal imagery, their psychological themes, n their powerful scripts . Than only u will understnd

    2. Thank you, brother, for being such a support.

    3. Vinay Kartik Instead of Criticizing Gaurav Rai ,Why Don't You tell How Do You Like the Movie or Your Star rating ,here we have gathered to give our views on Movies & not to attack on each other so talk to the point ,Give Your Feed back on Movie & not on People

  2. Why people don't go and watch these type of movies.Anurag kashyap is one of the best director india has,still he is struggling for his movies.Please people go & watch this movie.People should show love to anurag kashyap movies as they show to any salman,shahrukh's movie.Dumb movies are earning 500 crores & nice movies are not even able to recover their production cost.

  3. Raman Raghav 2.0 fails to live up to its hype. The movie is self-indulgent, dark, and purposeless for the most part. It is rife with disturbing scenes that offer little cinematic value.

    Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vicky Kaushal and the newcomer Sobhita Dhulipala deliver memorable performances and in that order. Beyond these performances, the movie has little to offer. The only way to enjoy it is to watch it without any expectations.
