Satya 2 Hindi Movie Review

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand’s Verdict ( CNN IBN)

Many, many times during this overlong film, we hear that the underworld company formed by the protagonist is just a thought, and not an actual entity that can be snuffed out by the cops. Much in the same vein, ‘Satya 2’ is not so much an engaging film as it is an interesting idea that Varma squanders away with a hackneyed script, and an ensemble of over-actors. I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for Ram Gopal Varma’s Satya 2. We’ve been waiting for a film that gives us a fresh take on crime in the city. Sadly, this is not that film.

Like RGV’s previous endeavors, SATYA-2 is loaded with style and attitude. The plot too is shades different from the earlier films in this genre, with RGV moulding it in the thriller format and unleashing the screenplay at a feverish pace. The fact that SATYA-2 is not inspired by any of the gangster films attempted earlier keeps you on the edge and heightens the curiosity. But there are hiccup. . On the whole, SATYA-2 may not be RGV’s best, but there’s no denying that it has the right elements that make a quintessential gangster film. However, the KRRISH-3 wave coupled with the arrival of another Superhero film [THOR: THE DARK WORLD] may affect its business prospects.

This film has no connection – either in quality or in narrative – with the first. Only that here too, the lead is called Satya. It’s morally specious and unintentionally comical. While the men kill and glower, the women serve tea and flash skin. The one bright spot here is Punit, who despite being made to deliver dialogue in slow motion, retains some screen presence. Watching Satya 2 is like being bludgeoned. I say, stay at home and revisit the original.

Satya 2 didn’t need to be called Satya 2. There’s no connection to the original Satya whatsoever. If anything, christening this film Satya 2 is a sign of Ram Gopal Verma’s despair; trying to cash in on the film that made him a true force. The original Satya fueled the imagination of audiences and provided nourishment in its success for filmmakers who wanted to bring change to Hindi cinema with its unseen treatment of the genre. It’s unfortunate that the “sequel” will have few takers, much less inspire anyone.

All in all, the story and screenplay are kiddish and achieve no purpose – they neither succeed in spreading fear among the viewers nor do they entertain the audience. Radhika Anand’s dialogues are ordinary. On the whole, Satya 2 is not at all a worthy sequel to Satya. At the box-office, it will fail to perform. It has taken a dull start and there are very bleak chances of box-office collections picking up anywhere.

Satya 2′ (unlinked sequel), thrives on randomness and implausible ideas. The supporting cast is too weak, and the unforgettable bhaichara, the potbellied Kallu maamas and boisterous Bhikus (of Satya fame) are sorely missed. RGV relies on his trademark camera angles, close-ups and deafening ‘Satya’ chants (background score) to heighten drama, but guns down the plot at the onset. Even a good hangover of the remarkable prequel might have salvaged this one.  Truth be told, iss film ko goli maaro, and for the sake of nostalgia, watch the original, for posterity.

The film is categorised as an action thriller. But there is very little action. Characters spend most of their time talking, brokering deals and playing the “dimag ka khel”. As for the thriller part of it, there’s not much there either unless you enjoy the way the camera voyeuristically pans to Chitra’s naval or Special’s scantily clothed form.It is a little hard to believe that this is the film that RGV chose to be a sequel to his most iconic creation. All I can say is that Satya 2 is as bad as Satya was good.

Satya defined a Bollywood genre and earned instant cult following. Fifteen years on, Satya 2 defies all logic. Pretty much like he had done with his ill-advised remake of Ramesh Sippy’s Sholay, Ram Gopal Varma unabashedly trivialises an idea that had worked famously the first time around, Satya, the ultimate guns-and-gangs sage, was clearly in no need of re-interpretation. So, what on earth was RGV thinking? For all its obvious warts, Satya 2 may not be as insufferable as RGV Ki Aag, but it comes quite close to being a total creative disaster.

‘Satya 2’, which in every way is as forgettable as the original was memorable. It is a disaster, not just as a sequel, but as a stand-alone, and it makes me nostalgic for the RGV that used to be. You want to ask RGV: what was he thinking? Or has he abandoned it altogether now? ‘Satya’ was a gamechanger. ‘Satya 2’ is not even in the game. ‘Goli maar bheje mein’.

I thought the worst of Ram Gopal Varma was Aag but the man has created a new joiner for Bollywood’s league of most scummy films ever made. Even in the worst of films, there is always something to appreciate. If you love cinema, refrain from watching Satya 2. It is a horror that the devil himself got down to inflict on us!

His Satya is given the responsibility to rewrite the “destiny of the city of Mumbai”, a point that the narrator constantly justifies during the tedious screenplay. A deafening background further establishes the murky trade, and the lanky hero’s journey from a nobody to one of the most conniving and invincible criminal in town in a matter of months.Surely, RGV believes being bad is quite easy. But, it falls flat due to his insincere show of sympathy and revenge.

  2. No matter what cast, creed & category you belong, you must have encountered people mostly clad in crisp ironed formals & with great vocal skills; who sure have a ‘never heard before’ plan to secure your happy life, a profitable concept to put your money in for a humongous guaranteed return or even a ‘work from home’ chain-business to join for an easy & quick solution to all your worries. Who hasn’t met a salesman before, with pamphlets & booklets to handover you on your regular bus-stand, at market place & where not?

    In similar manner, we see the leading man of SATYA 2- Ram Gopal Varma’s another disastrous contribution to Indian cinema, selling off a promising concept of forming a new underworld ‘company’ that would believe in not showing off its powers but in planting its roots all over undercover to extract more in a safer way. The only problem here is, the plan may sound convincing at first but has no concrete ground to proceed further and sadly, the way it gets described and explained is nothing but an irritating- infuriating blabber all the way. As a result, you have no choice left but to snatch the pamphlet, roll it and start looking for the nearest and first dustbin to throw it away like we do with the most such plans.

    Allegedly a sequel to 1998’s path breathing underworld movie SATYA of great team work (Anurag Kashyap, Gulzar, Vishal Bhardwaj), SATYA 2 unashamedly doesn’t show any connection to its prequel. In fact, it is as bad to SATYA as RGV’s AAG was to ‘SHOLAY’. The irony is both the films are in name of one filmmaker and no one can really blame or thrash out the other for being so offensive. We all have been waiting for the real RGV to come out soon but at this point of time, I would like to believe in a quite filmy situation where the real Ram Gopal Varma of RANGEELA, RAAT, BHOOT, SATYA, KAUN is now captured in somewhere and his place is now taken over by his ‘humshakal’ who’s ready to devastate all the respect as a filmmaker he had earned from left, right & centre (Trust me, this is more entertaining plot than the most of RGV’s recent failures J)

    Unlike the character sensitively underplayed by J D Chakrvarthy in 1998’s hit, the new Satya in town [played by a newcomer credited as Puneet Singh Ratn for Hindi Version and as Sarwanand in Telugu] is so insipid, bland & boring that in order to look intense-sensible and sure, he often chews off words before making the statement and that too without having any clue about where to take pause, where to stop. For example, “suna hai………..aapke film………….industry mein……bahut jaan-pehchaan hai?” irritatingly, he not only goes on & on with his self-obsessive enlightenment on the module & model of underworld company in every other scene but also walks & moves in the most confusing body-language I have ever seen in any actor.

    The writing is too lethargic to create sense. Imagine a narrative voice-over with pure Hindi words like ‘utpann, sarvnaash, chintan’, and in times when there is a song to be thrown in, it goes like “…and they went to Kashmir for honeymoon”. Song is over. & now it says, “…and after the honeymoon, they came back to Mumbai”. What an explanation! And who says Bollywood doesn’t show logics!!

    On serious note, time has come when we should console & comfort the cinema lovers in us with a ‘hard to accept’ realization that there was a filmmaker who inevitably desired and derived us through his many prominent artworks for a potential change in Indian cinema but is now lost somewhere in the undercurrents of his own mutinous nature! SATYA 2 is not Ram Gopal Varma’s worst but sure a forgettable & shoddy work of substandard that kills all my hopes to see him rise & shine again! Stay Away! [1/5]

  3. This review is awesome!!!! now I have to watch this movie, just…for…laughs!

  4. Was watching Satya 2 … Left it midway.
    Bad acting(?) by lead pair. Bad Dialog Delivery. Weak story Telling, Hopeless Music, Drab Background Narration by someone !

    My Verdict 3.5 / 10
