Ab Tak Chhappan 2: Film Review – A boring sequel to the originally gripping crime thriller

After a decade of giving us the riveting Ab Tak Chhappan, Nana Patekar returns as the encounter specialist Sadhu Agashe in the sequel, Ab Tak Chhappan 2. Back in 2004, Shimit Amin made a fantastic crime thriller that portrayed Agashe as an honest cop who eliminates the filth in society by hunting criminals down. Sadly, the sequel is nowhere close to the original, making it an unpleasant viewing experience.

Agashe, who has now settled with his only son in the backwaters of Goa, rejoins the police force on the Home Minister’s (Vikram Gokhale) insistence. The Chief Minister, Annaji (Dilip Prabhavalkar) lives on Gandhian principles, but lets the Home Minister deal with crime in his own way. Agashe returns to head the encounter squad and sets on a mission to stop the rising crime in the city. Gul Panag plays the role of a crime reporter, while Ashutosh Rana is the jealous cop who dislikes Agashe. Much like the first part, the gritty cop succeeds in his mission but has to pay a heavy price once again.

Even as Agashe and Co. go about killing people, there seems to be a disconnect between the story and its characters. Nana Patekar is effortless as Sadhu Agashe and still carries the aura of a phenomenal actor. His witty punchlines laced with straight-faced humor are spot on, but that’s the only good thing about this film. Shaky camerawork, shoddy production and an ineffective background score make this sequel a disaster. Add to it a meaningless script and the presence of some unnecessary characters which hardly have a role to play. The climax is unpredictable, but lacks proper execution and doesn’t quite surprise the audience.
 
Director Ejaz Gulab probably forgot that your lead actor cannot carry the whole film without a strong plot. Much of the film rests on Nana’s shoulders, but that’s not enough. The film runs for less than 2 hours and has an interesting first half, but you get a strong urge to leave immediately post the interval. On the whole, Ab Tak Chhappan 2 is an apology to an outstanding original film.
 

Why should you watch the film?
You shouldn’t, even if you’re a die-hard Nana Patekar fan. Watch the original Ab Tak Chhappan if you wish.
