Streaming on Disney+ Hotstar
One of the biggest releases of this year, Sadak 2 released on Disney+ History today. The film starts off on a thrilling note – with Aarya (Alia Bhatt) playing an arsonist to burn down an effigy of a fake godman. Turns out, Aarya may or may not have mental issues but she definitely has a sketchy relationship with her parents.. Cut to, Ravi (Sanjay Dutt) is reminiscing about his Sadak days with his lady love and wife Pooja (Pooja Bhatt) and is dealing with suicidal tendencies himself. Aarya approaches Ravi, the taxi driver we know from Sadak, to go to Kailash. After a thousand twists in the tale, we get to know secrets that were well kept from us.
We have no complaints about the performances
There’s no doubt that all the cast members Iike Sanjay Dutt and Alia Bhatt transcend of what’s expected of them. Alia is impressive at being the rebel with a legit cause and she shares cute chemistry with Sanjay Dutt. Aditya Roy Kapur plays his role to the T.
Sadak 2 is a sequel that could’ve been…not gonna lie
A lot of twists are introduced in the plot and it makes Sadak 2 interesting. The story, as well as the progression, are intriguing but the execution is all over the place. The film takes time to set itself up with so many plot points hanging in the air. It appears that Sadak 2 was made with the sole intention of piggybacking on the popularity of the original.
There’s such a thing as too many twists and plot points
Many characters don’t appear to be as they are and we are not complaining. These twists do a great job at keeping you hooked. Expect a masala film with twists to match. However, these twists may prove to be too much to match your sensibilities. Having said that, if you’re a fan of dramatic twists and a little melodrama to match, it’ll be a decent affair.
WATCH OR NOT
Okay so it may not be a masterpiece but it does make for an okay one-time watch. If you’re in for a masala entertainer and there’s nothing else to watch, you can give Sadak 2 a try.
