Vidyut is as good-looking as a man can be. If you watched him on debut playing John Abraham’s bete noir in Force (2011), you probably know that already. As Captain Karanvir Singh Dogra in Commando 2: The Black Money Trail, the character he earlier played in the 2013 film Commando: A One Man Army, he does everything to please a lustful viewer. He executes sleek stunts, repeatedly jumping, spinning, flipping, whirling and twirling his beautiful body through the air.
Commando 2 takes us to global hotspots in its tracking of the ‘kaala-dhan’ and the well-dressed criminals who handle the cash, but is hampered by a lack of freshness.
India’s most wanted Black Money agent, Vicky Chaddha, gets arrested in Malaysia and is kept in a safe house by the Malaysian authorities, along with his wife. A team of four is being sent to Malaysia to bring them to India. Apart from the growth of inter-personal relationships, the mission has quite a few twists and turns on its way. The story follows Karan as he uses his brain and brawn to recover all of the laundered black money.
Karan (Vidyut Jammwal) AKA Commando is the lean, mean fighting machine who has zero tolerance for the corrupt and zero faith in India’s judicial system and its politicians.
So he will fake an encounter rather than nab a criminal. It’s all for a good cause as Commando 2 soon proceeds to tell us that Karan’s muscles and his adept martial art skills are all that is needed to get crores of black money back to India. This is an action flick where the only the stunts are real; everything else is a flight of fancy.
Vidyut is a rock-hard action star and his flips and action is the only reason to sit and watch the movie for so long. Karan (Vidyut) isn’t perfect. He has a weakness for women. Enter femme fatale, played by Esha Gupta, who toys with the fighting hero despite repeated warnings from an encounter specialist Bhavna Reddy (Adah Sharma).The makers shrewdly attempt to cash in on hot-button issues like demonetization and farmers’ suicides, but to be entirely honest this is a bargain basement version of an Abbas-Mustan film with a simplistic plot and logic-defying twists.
Hence, Bollynumber would like to rate the movie with 2 stars!
