So the Bhatts have come up with a new product which is a sequel of their own hit film, MURDER (2004). Mallika Sherawat is replaced by Jacqueline Fernandez. But apart from Emraan Hashmi, there’s nothing to compare the two films. Even the plots are poles apart. It clearly shows that the title was just used to cash in on the success of MURDER.
MURDER 2 stars Emraan Hashmi playing ex-cop Arjun Bhagwat. He now gets his daily bread by working for gangsters and pimps. Model Priya (Jacqueline Fernandez) is in love with Arjun but he only considers her to be his sex friend. “Na mohabbat, na zaroorat; sirf aadat,” are the words he uses to describe her.
A Goan pimp entrusts him the task of finding the whereabouts of his several call girls who have mysteriously gone kaput. His search leads him to a psychopath Dheeraj Pandey (Prashant Narayan), who mercilessly kills women and girls by cutting them into several pieces.
After a raunchy item number featuring Yana Gupta right in the opening credits and a love making scene between Priya and Arjun, it gets to the point with the main plot of the film. The narrative, which does get glory at times, is packed with numerous thrilling moments. One wonders how the film will unfold once Arjun gets hold of Dheeraj in the first half itself. But there is enough in the store to keep you entertained. However, the second half does meander for a while.
Emraan Hashmi suits the role perfectly. Actually, the role suits him. It’s a typical bad-boy-with-a-good-heart role, something which we have seen Emraan portray many times in the past. Jacqueline Fernandez looks sizzling, but doesn’t have a meaty role. Those expecting copious steamy scenes between Emraan and Jacqueline will surely be disappointed. Sulagna Panigrahi, who makes her debut, plays the victimised Reshma to perfection. Sudhanshu Pandey plays his part with a lot of confidence. Sandiip Sikcand acts well. Shweta Kawatra impresses in her cameo.
The film undoubtedly belongs to Prashant Narayan, who delivers a splendid performance. To give him credits, he elevates the film to a great extend. His performance is so effective that you start loathing him every time he appears on screen. An intriguing plot supported by a superb performance by Prashant Narayan, make MURDER 2 a ‘killer’ film.
If you like watching thriller , then Murder 2 is a must watch for you. We would rate it 3 out 5 stars .
