If you don’t already know, Sadak 2 is the sequel to the 90s blockbuster Sadak, both directed by Mahesh Bhatt. Sadak 2 retains Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt from its original cast and adds Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur to the mix.

Released in 1991, Sadak was about a taxi driver Ravi (Sanjay Dutt) saving a young girl Pooja (Pooja Bhatt) from a brothel. 29 years later, Sadak 2 has Alia’s character exposing a fake godman who runs an ashram. Sadak had gotten the crime thriller tone just right and we hope Sadak 2 dons it as well. The team released a few character posters this week, before the trailer.

Amidst a little excitement and a lot of controversies, Sadak 2 finally dropped its trailer today. Ravi seems to have retired from his driving days but has to take this one last job because his late wife Pooja took her booking. The rest of the trailer shows us key characters, including the villains, and they make a curious lot. There seems to be enough action to satiate the Sanjay Dutt fans and the original Sadak fans. If we were to guess, Pooja Bhatt may only appear as a cameo on the account of her character being dead and whatnot. Alia’s role is backed by her grief of losing a loved one and her resolve to stand up to a fake godman. She has always been her best when her character has had an intense backstory so that’s definitely something to look forward to. Aditya Roy Kapur (sober here, from what we see) stars opposite Alia and they seem to share sweet chemistry.  Take a look at the trailer if you haven’t watched it already.

Sadak 2 releases on Disney+ Hotstar on the 28th of August. This is easily one of the biggest sequels and one of the biggest films to release this year. Stay tuned for our review, quizzes and more.
