Synopsis: Jannat 2 is a tumultuous rollercoaster journey of Sonu Dilli (Emraan Hashmi) and an angst ridden cop (Randeep Hooda) set against the murky underbelly of the gun trade. One ordinary man, Sonu’s (Emraan Hashmi) quest for his personal heaven creates hell for all around him until with the help of a cop Pratap (Randeep Hooda), he breaks away from it all and does something extraordinary to make things better for the good of the community.
Sonu Dilli is a smooth talking street-smart gun runner, who has the gift of the gab and knows his trade inside out. ACP Pratap is a hardened maverick cop, who has a personal vendetta against the gun nexus. He will go to any lengths to crack down this nexus and expose everybody involved in the illegal gun trade.
Sonu falls in love with a beautiful young doctor Jhanvi (Esha Gupta), along his journey and that throws his life’s course into a tailspin with unforeseen and far-reaching consequences for all 3 of them.
Review: "Jannat 2" is movie that is likable in parts. If you break it down by characters or even by relationships, some of them are likable individually. But as a whole the movie doesn’t flow down your throat well. The parts fail to connect with each other and hence fail to connect with the audience as well.
Sonu Dilli (Emraan Hasmi) is a small time guns dealer who’s lived on the streets all his life. Untill he crosses paths with Janavi (Esha Gupta). It’s love at first sight for him. In order to woo her he has to give up his wicked ways and live a clean life. This is where ACP Pratap Raghuvanshi (Randeep Hooda) comes in. A man whose wife was killed due to the illegal arms business in the city. His only goal in life is to trace and punish the kingpin of the illegal arms trade business. He blackmails Sonu Dilli to become his informer. Add a whole dose of Bhatt Camp twists and turns to this story and there you have it – "Jannat 2" summed up.
What’s new about the film though is, the relationship between Sonu Dilli and ACP Pratap. The intention was bang on, but the treatment was not convincing. The relationship between Sonu Dilli and his love interest also could have been better explored and more believable. Performance-wise both Emraan and Randeep have done a fairly decent job. Randeep being the better of them.
So yes, a few small things apart, the movie as a whole was disappointing.
Verdict: Easily worth a miss.
