Wisam lives to celebrate his independence. Omar and Saleem do not. Wisam mourns his brothers but Nation comes first to a soldier. Vishwaroop 2 offers twice as much action, speed, intrigue and romance as Vishwaroop. It is both a prequel and a sequel to part 1.
Just to clarify, I get a lot of hate messages for unabashedly bashing movies with harsh words. Please note, I don’t bash stars or even the process of the movie, I just make sure not a single common man wastes their hard earned money on movies we get to watch for free. Vishwaroop 2 is just like the process of jumping from a plane in a hope that parachute will open but it doesn’t. You’ll see great views while you jump but you know what’s the end result. Only if the story could’ve been as interesting as part 1!
Hassan’s obsession with static slo-mo scenes continues with this one. A super long first half of 1 hour 30 minutes, horrible story connect, forcedly added songs & mother-son angle, tacky usage of green screens; Vishwaroop 2 has many things going against its favour. A very well choreographed underwater fight scene, a hand to hand combat sequence without any background music; these are few pluses I was able to note down. Indeed a sad end to a franchise I had high hopes from.
Kamal Haasan continues a similar act from part 1. 40% of Vishwaroop 2 was shot while the team was shooting for part 1 & it’s evident from the scenes. For a man aged 63 years, Kamal Haasan is an inspiration for everyone out there. But here he gets burdened under the tag of director, producer and writer. He’s good in action scenes but falls a bit short in the emotional ones.
Pooja Kumar improves drastically from part 1. She hammed a lot in the prequel but here she performs well. Andrea Jeremiah was as good as part 1, she looked as hot as ever. Rahul Bose is hardly there minus the lousy climax. His character gets wasted when he was such an important part of the prequel. Jaideep Ahlawat is just about decent as he was in the part 1. Waheeda Rehman is wasted.
Kamal Haasan’s obsession for making a huge film is visible throughout. Sadly, there was no strong story to back this one. The action sequences were concentrated upon carefully but what Kamal failed to touch was the emotional connect. Even the thrills and chills as part 1 were missing from this one.
Ghibran replaced Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy on the music department and the background music goes well the scenes. Songs obstruct the already obstructed screenplay & hence giving you more chances to yawn.
All said and done, fans of Vishwaroop should forget there was a sequel planned for it. They should again watch the part 1 instead and keep its memories intact. It’s like one of those many Hollywood actioners which are all glam and no content.
