In 2013’s film Commando, Vidyut Jammwal enthralled everyone with his gravity-defying stunt sequences and kick-ass action scenes, so when it was pronounced that the makers are planning a bigger and better sequel, hopes were sky-high.
The Home Minister of India (Shefali Shah) assigns a four member special unit, comprising a dedicated police officer (Freddy Daruwala), ex-commando turned encounter specialist (Vidyut Jammwal), corrupt cop obsessed with brands (Adah Sharma) and a hacker to undertake a covert operation.
Ex- Army Commando-turned- Special Cell operative Karan Dogra (Jammwal) is on the trail of Vicky Chadda (Thakur Anoop Singh), an alleged middle man of people holding hoards of black money in the post-demonetisation scenario. Dogra jets off to Malaysia with brand-conscious encounter specialist Bhawna Reddy (Adah Sharma), the robotic ACP Bakhtawar (Freddy Daruwala) and geeky Zafar (Sumit Gulati), a hacker extraordinaire to bring back Vicky and his wife Maria (Esha Gupta) to face trial in India.
But, the mission is compromised from day one and how Karan manages to win the day despite the countless double crosses and twists, forms the rest of the plot.
Vidyut Jammwal looks flamboyant with his unruly mane and bulging muscles and he can pull off overwhelming action scenes with effortless ease. Vidyut still has a long way to go if he wants to be a good actor. Adah Sharma has overdone the Hyderabadi pronunciation and has nothing much to offer in terms of act while Freddy confines himself to staring threateningly at the camera. Esha is beautiful.
Film Commando 2 may be better in terms of budget, but when it comes to content, the previous version is better than this sequel version. Commando was made with simplicity and decency, which appealed to audiences, but with Commando 2, the makers have gone out of their ways to cook up a forced plot, which combined with a feeble screenplay, poor acts and ordinary dialogues, makes an average film. There are a lot of needless endorsement of Government campaigns like 'Swachh Bharat' and Demonetisation, which may make you irritating. Director Deven Bhojani tries too hard to evoke intrigue but the feeble script leaves no room for thrill.
Commando 2 takes us to global hotspots in its tracking of the black money and the well-dressed criminals who handle the cash, but is hampered by an absence of freshness.
Overall, it is worthy to watch once for its beautiful exotic settings and high octane action sequences.
