Sadak 2: Film Review – The Bhatt-Dutt Chemistry Is The Saving Grace
The Dutt-Bhatt Combo Rocks
50%Overall Score

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.

The Kapoor Klan Gets Kozy On The Latest Episode Of ‘Koffee With Karan’ 7

What is there to say about Karan Johar‘s trademark opening routine that we haven’t said before? As usual, Johar long-jumps from one topic to another to introduce his guests of the week. Thankfully, this week his speech was more quip than essay. Probably because Sonam Kapoor Ahuja was sick and tired of standing in the wings with her cousin, Arjun Kapoor. Over the years, the Kapoors have made dropping in on ‘Koffee With Karan’ a ritual. Kareena Kapoor Khan played it safe on the kouch just last week. But Sonam has always been a loose canon and we hoped and prayed, that she had some revelations up her sleeve.
