Jannat 2 Review: The Second Installment in the Jannat Series of films, ‘Jannat 2’ is an entertaining, well-acted film, that deserves a viewing on its true merits. A fast-paced, edgy crime-thriller! Well the film started off well with witty dialogs from two main characters Randeep Hooda and Emraan. Both have performed well and take the movie forward on their shoulders. Vulgarity is slowly finding its place in bollywood. The usage of bad language is interesting in the beginning but becomes unrealistic and forced in latter parts of Jannat 2. The lead actress should have been different. She looks like Angelina Jolie at times. Her acting skills are OK. The part where Emran rises in his position and becomes more rich and successful is shown better in Jannat.
The plot of Jannat 2, is very very interesting, story, very well scripted with twists (some we can guess, others are mind blowing), dialogs are well written. So the writers of the movie did an excellent job. Coming to direction, Kunal Deshmukh has shown his talent in Jannat and Tum Mile. He has improved and refined himself with Jannat2. This is by far his best effort as a director. Some scenes are very interesting like revealing the twists and the conversation between Randeep Hooda and Manish Choudary (Mangal Singh). There is no dull moment even if there are they don’t last long.
In Jannat 2, Emraan Hashmi is excellent in the lead role. The Talented Actor scores from start to end. Randeep Hooda is terrific in a strong supporting role. Esha Gupta has screen presence and does fairly well. Manish Chaudhary is menacing. Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and Brijendra Kala are fantastic in their respective parts. The ending part of the movie is very touching. Bollywood is changing and making serious films, which is a good sign. Music is awesome too you will be singing the song “jannate kahan” on your way home.
