After several postponements, Kamal Haasan’s most-awaited spy thriller ‘Vishwaroopam 2’, a sequel to the 2013 film ‘Vishwaroopam’ had finally hit the screens. Though there was a speculation about the postponement of the movie released due to the demise of revered Tamil politician Karunanidhi, the movie got released without any hassles.

 

Let’s see whether Kamal Haasan can leave any impact with this most anticipated sequel or not.

 

 

 

Story:

This sequel to ‘Vishwaroopam’ continues where the first one ended. In ‘Vishwaroopam 2’ Kamal Haasan tries to address the open-ended questions from the first part. Omar Qureshi (Rahul Bose) and Salim (Jaideep Ahlawat) comes up with a dangerous plan after they fail to executed deadliest attack on New York.

 

On the other hand, Soldier- turned-spy Wisam Ahmed Kashmiri (Kamal Haasan) his nuclear-oncologist wife Nirupama (Pooja Kumar), his working partner Ashmita Sunbramanium (Andrea Jerremiah) and Colonel Jagannath (Shekhar Kapoor) tried to spoil Omar and Salim’s plans. Eventually, Kamal and his team become the target of Omar. Will Omar succeed in carrying his mission and what are the consequences faced by Kamal and his team forms the rest of the story.

 

 

Analysis:

Though the first few minutes of the movie gives us a feeling that we are going to watch another edge-of-the-seat thriller, the movie goes haywire in no time. It tests our patience with the directionless path and we wonder what’s happening on the screen.

 

Though the second half has a few good moments here and there, again a rushed climax spoils all the mood.

 

 

 

 

Positives:

First few minutes of the movie
The flashback episode of Afghanistan
Performances by Kamal Haasan, and Rahul Bose

 

Drawbacks:

Pointless theme
Poor dialogues
Irritating direction and screenplay

 

Verdict:

On the whole, ‘Vishwaroopam 2’ is a directionless spy drama which tests your patience to the core. All the efforts of Kamal Haasan went in vain. Watch it at your own risk.
